    Hello JACK,
    What kind of trees are in the pics, Blood Myrtle or perhaps English Walnut? Very nice.

    Interesting pics....I guess I do not know much about gunstocks as I always have just used factory guns. What part of the tree are most of the nicer stocks made from? I would assume that just standard stuff such as Marlin rifles, Remington Shotguns and what is considered standard production stuff might be made from the main trunks of the tree ???

    Yes. These sections are going to have significantly more figure and complexity than the straighter-grained portions found in a straight section of trunk!
