1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I am looking for a wood blank that is ready to work. I would like a 2 piece set if not a large single piece will work if I can get a stock and forearm out of it.

    I am looking for either a real nice piece of English Walnut or Turkish Walnut. I want a piece that has both nice color and figure.

    Restocking a K80 trap special

    The blank needs to be at least 8.5" tall that will give close to 1/4" on each side.

    Please email pictures and a price

    Thank you in advance

    Go to Denli walnut as he has a great selection. He is in Turkey but has been doing business here for years. I just bought a nice piece of Turkish for an SCO.
    Old World walnut also has some nice stuff.

    Just Google gun stock blanks. I was just looking the other day also. There are some that post on here also.

    When you get the wood from Denli is it still green?

    Gene if you would just do what I asked in the post and not always ask what a price range is, it would be a lot easier. When I see you respond I usually cringe.



    I have looked at the above sites, I stayed away from the guy in turkey only because the distance between us if there is an issue

    If your price range is below what someone has to offer- why not just set that price range first?

    Then people wont waste their time or yours?

    If your budget is 300 then just state that - it will help move things along

    I don't want to throw a price out there because I could find a nice piece for less. If I post a price I'm sure someone would try and take advantage of it

    Denli gives you plenty of time to exchange or refund if you don't like it. He will also send you pictures from all angles and a choice of fore-end pieces.
    The wood is good to go as my stockmaker checked it and went to work,hope to have it next week.

    I have this; is it something you might be interested in? It's dry and ready to work. 20+ years old, and it has been in my Texas garage for 7.

    FE Blank is 13 3/8 long, 2 1/2 wide; 2 3/4 wide.
    Stock Blank is 19 3/4 long 2 3/8 thick. Butt end is 7 1/4 wide, nose is 4 3/4 wide.

    The stock maker I bought it from recommended it go on a thru bolt shotgun.

    The wood is a bit darker than this shows under florescent light.

    If interested, please PM me with an offer. I honestly don't know for sure the type of wood other than walnut.

    If you find a stick at Denli, don't worry when you are asked to wire money to London....you will be happy with your choice. I'd only suggest that when you have a stock made from Turkish, have the maker glass bed the action. I have made 4 stocks from Turkish, and it took me the first two to figure it out.....they both cracked at the lower tang (Perazzi)....I have glass bedded all since then. I think the wood is kiln dried.

    Also, give Cecil Fredi a go in Las Vegas....a stand up guy, with a fine selection of wood. You could fly round trip cheap, and spend an afternoon going thru his stuff.....if you like wood, it's fantastic....I can spend hours going thru his stock of wood.....English, Claro, Bastogne, and some exotics.

    Reverse Clamshell with feather and white wood incusion for a touch of uniqueness. 8 1/4 inches at the butt and 5 inches + at the receiver. Should be more than big enough for your application.
