    The gentleman in this area who has done a lot of trap stocks and is doing another for me right now charges $150, but I've often told him that he works too cheap! Everyone who has used him is amazed both by his workmanship and his prices.

    Ed,

    There is a retired cabinet maker that lives down the road from me that does some damn fine work. He likes doing gunstocks because of the generally better than average wood. I swear he'd do it for free if we let him.

    We don't push a lot of work on him, and he lets us know when he's ready to take on another job. We keep him a guarded secret and pay him $250.00 for each stock set.

    I am trying to find someone to refinish to original specs a Win era Perazzi TM1 stock. No wood damage, the finish has just cracked over the years. Thanks, Rich

    I can vouch for Ed's guy @ $150.00. I got my 687 SP II back about two weeks ago and it is beautiful. I'm sending him a BT-99 in the fall and I don't care if the price goes up. The work is that nice.

    "My guy" is Paul Altland, owner of the Timberland Stock Shop near Hanover, Pennsylvania. This is a one-man operation and you will find Paul very humble but very knowedgeable about woods and how to work them. He builds custom stocks and does his own finishing and checkering. As "coveybuster" and several others have stated, his work is very good. Paul's phone number is (717) 637-4978.

    Below are two photos of my stock. It is the one on the bottom in the first picture, which is "before." The second picture is "after."

    He is refinishing an 870 Competition for me right now that had Remington's 1980s muddy-looking "satin" finish on it. It is supposed to be done any day now and I'll post some before and afters of it, too.
