    Turkish walnut? Looks like exhibition grade. Pictures after checkering would be great. Can I get HP's autograph? LOL Bob

    Very nice. I didn't know Dockweiller would only do the wood and not the checkering.

    So is this a new partially finished stock or a refinish and the checkering has been sanded off in the process?

    Billy, Doc works 7 days a week, he is 87 I think. they don't make them like that anymore. Great wood is hard to find and great stockmakers even harder. He has done a super job at passing the art along to H.P.. Jack

    From what I have heard directly from Jack Dockwiller recently, he is still doing a lot of stocks for Krieghoff shotguns, primarily through his old contact of du Pont Krieghoff, with whom he has dealt for years.

    Jack has rarely, if ever, done checkering. He subs it out as he typically has done for years. Not to worry; it is magnificent in texture and design.

    His solid gold "diamond" inlet pistol grip cap has been replaced of recent with one of solid silver content - due to cost of gold.

    In my opinion NOBODY - I mean NOBODY - has ever equalled Dockwiller wood. Does it cost more? Hell, yes. Is it worth it? That is your decision. But, nobody else approaches it in quality and beauty. It stands out beyond the rest.

    Better hurry if you want the best; Jack is by no means from this year's biddy crop....

    One other thing...... if you have a skeet gun with a 28" barrel and you fret over not having enough forward weight, then consider a Dockwiller stock. Jack buils his stocks with a "fat" forend. It is amazing how his forends shift the weight forward on a shotgun. A 28" gun feels like a 30" gun with one of Jack's forends on it.
