    I had Phil Simms in Grand Junction Colorado make this stock and forearm for a 303 Beretta. His work is second to none.

    Beautiful wood on your gun. I have a question. Is that a factory barrel that was available as an option on your 303? Mine looks the same and I have always wondered if it was factory or an aftermarket. Thanks.

    There were no factory high ribs, Moneymaker did a lot of them. Look at the slanted uprights supporting the rib. that is moneymaker.

    Wonderful job on the wood thanks for shareing the pictures some people do not understand the reasoning for spending more money for the wood than the gun cost. But for a 303 shooter it is no brainer 303's have a sort of cult following most 303 people have more than one. Plus the gun is such a shooting machine the cost is not even an issue. I have a friend with 6 every time he sees one he usually buys it. I asked him why and he says value the old bang for the buck syndrom the gun price is to cheap to pass verses the quality of the gun. I'm guilty in a sense I have only one 303 with custom wood but fell victom to a second Beretta a 390 with a high rib and custom wood at the Southern Grand I traded a gun I did not want for it. Nothing like a new gun to make you feel like a kid again.

    Nice stock Lou! I have never had a stock that Phil made but have seen plenty and they are always very well done regardless of the grade of wood. Jeff

    Nice combination. I mean rib height and stock and forearm work. You have a good combination that you should shoot very well, best of luck with it.
