    I'm considering having a stock set made, but can't find any pricing on Wenig's site. Can anybody tell me how much a new american style would cost with special selection(50%) English walnut? I'm not looking for an exact figure, just trying to get a general idea. I figured there has to be a few Wenig customers on here.........

    Thanks,
    Rob

    As I recall from a few weeks ago, 50% SS English was about $750, 75% was $1250 and 100% was $2500.

    Including my fitting session, cutting K-80-style finger grooves into the forend and shipping the completed gun to me, the 100% Special Selection English walnut blank I had my stock made with six years ago was $3,980 with their optional "deluxe" finish (worth the extra $$$). I passed on the extra-cost checkering - I prefer simpler designs and think some of the ornate ones are a little gaudy.

    Below is a photo of Fred Wenig holding my blanks and Elbert Smith holding my KX-5 with its Wenig fitting stock and another of the gun wearing its new wood.

    I had a Wenig stock made in late 09 if I remember right. Custom fitting for my dimensions was $295.00. Stock fitted,finished,and checkered with two different recoil pads was $835.00 . The main difference in cost is the type and quality of the wood you choose. Fred Wenig has sold the business. I hope to never shoot a gun without a fitted stock again. You won't be sorry if you decide to have one made.

    I recommend Wenig highly. My experience with the new owner, Bobby Chambers and his staff, was first rate. Incidentally, Bobby is a very good shot and understands the little things that are important to his customers. I was satisfied enough that I became a repeat customer.

    I gave them a call yesterday. A custom dimension stock with 50% selection english and perazzi checkering would be just shy of $2,600.. The new American would be about $2,100(no fitting, custom checkering). Thanks for all of the responses

    Rob,

    Are you keeping your forearm on the gun? If so, there may be some additional charges that wasn't thought of in the quote. I have been down this road before.
