    Dennis is definately the man to see, if you want a stock, that not only looks good,fits good, and is a pleasure to shoot. He has the expertise to fit you right, and has a great selection of imported and domestic blanks to choose from, and his prices are great.

    With no disrespect to our own Gordy, I also have done business with Cecil Fredi in Las Vegas for some stunning CA English. I found him honest, accomodating, easy to work with, and he comes through with what he offers. All in all, another excellent source of stock blanks.

    I haven't used Dennis to make a stock yet but from what I've learned by talking to people who have, I will be using him for my next stock. Everyone has had nothing but good to say. All the stocks I've seen are simply great.

    Dennis is also giving back to our sport through his donations at a scale much higher then many other gun makers. Dennis is on his second raffle program to help youth shooting and the clubs that help support the ticket selling. He has also fully donated a new shotgun for the 2008 Minnesota State youth benefit auction. This is the largest single donation we've had by a long ways. I can't say enough about Dennis's work and his generousity.

    John Malcolm,

    I am heading out to see Cecil this weekend. How were his stock blank choices. Since you are having yours done by Dennis, did Dennis have any problems with the blank?

    Looking for insight.

    Thanks

    Dux4all, who is going to build your custom stock? Am looking for a custom stock builder. I guess I will go with Wenig. Would like to see your K-80 after the work is done. Thanks, Roy

    I just got back from Cecil yesterday and found a great piece of Maple Burl. I have never seen that much wood in one place. Everything was seperated by garages. He asked me what I was looking for then took me to the relevant garage to see. I looked at everything!!! I really didn't want something that everyone else had. This piece was really unique. What a great trip.

    I am set up to go see Dennis Devault on the 8th of October. Can't wait to see what this becomes.

    Wow John! That is some really incredible wood and the price is unbelievable! I can tell you that with that kind of figure and 100% distribution that it would be graded Exhibition Special Selection Grade at Wenigs. VERY high dollar indeed
