Nice piece of wood made into a good looking stock on a great gun.

I handle a lot of wood in my business, claro and crotch walnut from many sources.
Juglans Regia ( Walnut ) is one of my favorites.
The pieces you have are extremely fine specimens.
Outstanding. The word Turkish is over used in the marketing of fine walnut especially with regards to fire arms. Just like "Fine Corinthian Leather" from a 70's Chrysler commercial.
Never the less, you are a lucky man to obtain such extremely fine pieces.
Thanks for sharing these.

Stocker John has a gal that does checkering for him, I think she worked for Kimber of Oregon at one point.

Setterman,

It was done after the initial finish, but then the finish was touched up and rubbed out a couple of coats because some of the burl pores seem to just suck it in after a while.

A stock that beautiful should only be shot by a very handsome man or a beautiful woman. I am neither. So, I guess I am stuck with my PFS.
