    I'd like to have a new stock custom-made at Wenig's. Who would be the best person to make appointment with over there? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I had my fitting at the Grand in 2005. Elbert Smith, a partner in the business and a master stock maker, handled my fitting with Jimmy doing the modifications to the try stock. Both gentlemen at great at what they do and the whole staff is very nice to deal with.

    Eve,

    I recommend Jimmy also. This topic has been discussed on this forum several times, you might use the "Search" feature to collect a lot of ideas.

    Good luck on your fitting, it's a real treat!

    Thank you all for your help. I know that this topic has been discussed few times on this forum, but I just wanted to get the most recent opinion. I now have an appointment with Jimmy. Thanks again. Best regards, Eve

    Jimmy did my fitting, and then Fred accompanied us to the range, just to make sure I was satisfied with the results. Top shelf all the way.

    I took quite a few photos of the whole Wenig staff at work when I had my fitting done at the Grand in 2005. In fact, I wrote an article about the experience that appeared in Shotgun Sports in laste 2005 or early 2006. It's quite an interesting process.
