    We have completed and shipped a beautiful K-80 featuring Tiger Myrtle wood that was supplied by Mike Mann. Mike had the blank on this site a while back and we bought the blank. This is the finished product. If Mike has the original photos he might like to show the blank before it was carved. We have our signature Black Ebony grip cap and I apoligise for the bad photo on the first one. It was too much light in the wrong place and the gun has been shipped so I can't take the photo over again. I hope that the customer is satisfied with the finished product and that he shoots the new gun well. My hat goes off to the crew they do a great job of making our company look good. Thank you for taking a look, Happy Easter to everyone,

    Dennis, Cindy & The Crew

    These are really nice stocks, but it is Mrs. Dennis who puts the cream on the peaches. Don't let her get away!!

    To the unloader, please let me know when the gun arrives and that all is well. I hope UPS does a good job and doesn't beat the box up to badly. Talk to you soon,

    To me the best part is the way the carving and checkering of the forearm compliment the curves and engraving of the metal.

    Very beautiful work and results. This type wood always looks, to me, as though someone took a torch to a piece of maple. Marc

    I think that is probably your best work! As for me I don't generally prefer Myrtle wood but that is very attractive. Only thing I would delete is the "deer foot grip and toe nail" I like the abscence of the finger groove also.

    I'm an old guy: I was at a shoot some years back, walking past vendors, and this guy and I said "Hi," he had such a nice grin, I thought "Do I know this fellow from somewhere?" So, we visited. It was Dennis, and no, he won't remember the conversation. I just liked the guy. At the time, I didn't realize I was talking to a master.
    Way to go, Dennis!
