    Wow,

    That is a very impressive looking piece of English Walnut. Who did you buy the blank from if you want to share that info?

    Is your finish a trade secret or would you mind sharing with us what you use. I'm always looking for ways to improve my own results (I do my own stock work).

    The gun is a Beretta SO-5. The wood is English walnut, Californa grown, uniform,stable and beautiful, hand picked. I hate to share all our secrets but I'll tell you a couple. The finish is automotive eurethane clear, no color at all. As for the finishing proces...well... I'd rather not say. I will say there is about another 3 hours in additional labor AFTER the stock spraying process. It's not rocket science, but does take a little effort. The stocks are done entirely in house now. We sent our custom fit model to Wenig and had them duplicate this particular one for us and finished the inletting and so forth. We do the stocks , start to finish , after purchasing a duplicator. The wood was purchased from Cecil Fredi in Vegas....he has nice stuff, tell him we sent you his direction(blankscf@cox.net). Hope I answered everyone's questions, if not , shoot us an email.

    Thanks, Tim. I've always wondered about using automotive urethane for gunstocks but so far haven't tried it yet. I suspect it may be a bit more durable than polyurathane for wood. "Color sanding" is the key, and yes it's all about the work after you spray. You've got a beautiful piece of work there. Comgrats!!

    That looks great. I have a cowboy gun I need to have fixed up. It's a Baikal, which as a Russian gun is built sturdy as a tank, but the stock looks horrible. If it had nicer wood it would be great.

    Hey folks....I sprayed one stock, including checkering, ONCE. I'll never do it again. Our checkering is all hand cut and it looks like checkering should. That's one thing that sets us apart. Thanks for all the comments and "atta boys". I know it's appreciated, hope you all do!

    By the way.....I don't think I'm capable of being honorable or worthy enough, to refinish a Biakal gunstock....my apologies!

    Wally, I don't mean to be short about the Baikal....cost you more to refinish than you paid for the gun, sir.

    It wasn't me asking about the Baikal. The poster asking was Colonel Reb several posts above mine.
