    OK OK just one more time this week. This is a Perazzi MX-15 unsingle. The wood is English Walnut and it was a left over rifle stock blank we had laying around. The blank did not show any grain like how it turmed out. So I guess you never can be to sure what is under the surface until it is cut. Thank you for taking a look, the guys and Cindy appreciate the comments.

    If this is going to my buddy Jeff? I think he will be real happy with the results. Well worth some extra time.

    Another great looking stock from the folks at DeVaults!!!!

    Thank you Pete,

    Honestly we are very rarely fooled by what a piece of wood will look like but the blank this stock was made from sat here for over 2 years. It showed nothing until we started cutting into it. There were at least 7 people that saw that blank and just kept putting it down. I guess you never know what is under the surface. Thanks to everyone that has taken the time to look.

    Gorgeous! How do you decide how much pitch you put in a custom stock, Dennis.

    Hi, Pete.

    Was lucky to spend some time dealing with a mutual friend, Sam.

    I joked about the wine is simply getting more aged.

    Hi Barry,

    The pitch is det4ermined at the time of the fitting. The pitch is an angled measurement to fit the pocket of the shoulder. It is different for every person and has to be determined at the time of fitting. Thank you for the question, for more info go to our web site and look at the past newsletters page there is plenty of info explaining what we do during fitting.

    That stock gives the impression that it is a real pleasure to shoulder and shoot. It's got to feel great.
