    I am looking for a High Grade very special stock blank for a Winchester SX-1. This gun has recently been engraved by the Grand Master himself, Mr. Ken Hurst. This SX-1 features 100% Coverage. I have been looking for a special blank for the past 3 years and have come up with goose eggs. I have seen more pictures of wood than Bob Barker has been seen on The Price is Right! I desperately want to finish this gun and am desperate to find the right blank.

    If you have a special blank that you are interested in selling, please e-mail with pictures at:

    For the money, the wood offered by Gordy is hard to beat. You need to look at photographs. What he describes in words as just a common but nice blank is to me exceptionally attractive wood.

    Having purchased wood from both Gordy and Cecil, you will not be unhappy with either one. Cecil is in Vegas and if you call and make an appointment, you can go to his house and pick out your wood from his piles. Cheap cab ride from the strip. Just go see Cecil first before you hit the casino. I am still trying to find an excuse to visit Gordy that I can use on my wife, but I am sure something will come around. Pat

    There are a lot of gun blanks for sale on the internet. Alot are of quality far beyond what was pictured here. Please don't misunderstand my next comment...Gordon values his prize wood far more than I do. I can't imagine anyone would have the audacity to ask $20,000.00 for a gun blank. My opinion, and only my opinion, If Gordon like his wood that much, he can keep it tucked away in his priceless little vault.

    Not a hickup. Its called a flinch. And you need a release keyboard. Course, Lumper just thinks you need to get to the root of the problem. Get a good coach or shrink and figure it out. Then practice. Jake

    The "soul" of the gun? I didn't notice an "LOL" there. Someone is serious about that? One you can buy for $20,000.00? Okay - different strokes. I guess I get that.

    Steve, I am sooo frustrated. Gordy won't show us "the good stuff." Its his happiness and not ours.

    I didn't realize that Utah produced the 'finest wood in the world' and I own some nice wood. NO one in their right mind would pay $20K for a blank, and there is NO blank worth $20K.

    Joe ... only the rube machine made cigar smokers would think of lighting there cigars with $10 bills ... those who can afford the good wood use $20 bills.
