    I need a stock maker to replicate a factory Super X-1 stock and fore end. This will be checkered in Winchester "B" Carved pattern. This will go on a Ken Hurst engraved SX-1. I have the wood.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks,

    Yeah...if all you want is factory dimensions, then go to Wenig and have them do the stock. They have SX-1 factory stock dimensions in their CNC routing machines and can crank out an SX-1 stock by the push of a button.

    As for checkering and finishing, you can let Wenig do this, but if you want B grade type checkering, I would recommend John Reese in Montana of Custom Diamonds, http://www.customdiamonds.biz/index.html, W (406) 883-1465, M (406) 249-3199. His checkering is impecible, he's fast and not over priced, and he can do a nice finish for you also.

    I'm not going to mention who Ken used to recommend (but no longer does) to do stock work....but avoid him. That's based on experience.

    Alpha, I happen to have two or three sets of absolutely fabulous feathered crotch Claro already made up in the skeet or field dimensions. These are all super exhibition quality---none better. Just to let you know! And yes I can do them in "B" carved ---can't tell from factory. Steel grip caps and all.
    If interested send me an email. Thanks Phil Simms
