    Do a search on your computer for "German Gun Collectors Assn". They can tell you. Bulge.

    I am pretty sure if money is not an issue, any stock could be replaced.

    Anyone know anything about Turnbulls prices. I heard the average guy can't afford them? Bill

    He said $ is no problem.

    Turnbull is primarly a metal finisher and I don't know if he does wood work besides refinishing.

    Go to the website above. This starts on page 19 of the "photo" section with pix of a fire damaged shotgun. Be sure to go through the rest of the pictures and look at the Civil War era Starr revolver they restored. If you are not amazed by their work, I certainly am. Also go to their home page and click on "pricing." He will do as much or as little as you can afford.

    Shoot well and often,

    Mark.

    Turnbull does it all, does it right and is worth the price. Google him up. His prices are in his site.

    Another recommendation for Mike Allee of Gunsmithing Only

    Mission KS

    Look at the photos on his website of the restorations he has done. The guy does nice work.
