Many times a factory stock is made with a very short grip and for guys with large hands this becomes a problem with holding onto the gun. Below is a photo of how we extended the grip on an older Ljutic Mono Gun to help the shooter with a better hand position. We inserted the new grip with the dovetails and then the guys worked the wood down staying out of the checkering so we could minimize the repair and thus the over all cost of the repair. I think it will work fine and the total cost for the job was $ 275.00. Much cheaper than a new stock just to fix the grip.
Thank you for taking a look.

IF YOU re willing to post that photo, both of you must have a "checkered past'

beautiful work on all of you stocks- shoot with a club member who has one and I drool when I see it up close.

Not trying to be mean or anything gut you guys remind me of Laurel and Hardy. I mean that in a good way! One day when I can save enough of my lunch money I'm going to have you guys make me the stock of my dreams. Absolutely the BEST there is. Dan.

I like the extension to the grip. I know the dove tail grove are strong and will hold up.
But I think that a bisect or doll pins would make one clean line.
Then if you did some checkering it would hide the extension all most 100%.
It just me and my taste.
I still like your work and how it was finish up.

With work this great, have you added wood to raise a comb? There are many very good US sxs that are a pleasure to shoot, but have too low a comb.

Hello Gary,

Yes I have done that in the past but the problem is always cost to do the repair but we have done it and it works out great. This would be an alternative to an adjustable comb on a hunting gun. Many years ago there was a shooter from Cleveland by the name of Bill Weicamp and he did this to many guns it was called the Willy Wedge but now I am telling my age. So long and short yes we can do that. Thank you for the request and feedback.

The cost in Ebony is the same all that you have to watch is the width of the ebony. When the grip cap gets too wide it just doesn't look right. We try to keep the ebony down to 3/8" and under in thickness.
