Uncheckered Gun Stocks

A friend of mine recently had a custom stock made with no checkering. It really changed the traditional look of the gun. My friend shoots with gloves so handling is not a problem. He also has the option of adding checkering down the road and changing the look and feel.The flow of the stock's grain pattern was beautiful!Anybody else shooting a trap gun with no checkering? Thanks.

last weekend, I got fitted for a 20 gauge gun and handled a friend's sporting gun that just had come into the shop after being built by Perazzi. He had no checkering on his gun at all. It was a bit weird handling the gun with no checkering, but the grain really stood out. However in the end, I went with checkering...I think it helps with getting a good grip on the gun, at least for me. I wear gloves as well.

I have a custom remington 1100 that I shoot skeet with sometimes. It is a monte carlo stock and I opted for no checkering. The checkering hurts my hands after a couple of hundred rounds. I do not wear gloves. I like it very much.

My Ljutic 73 has had this uncheckered stock and forend on it since I restocked it in '92....couldn't afford to get it checkered then and just never got around to getting it done...I use a glove on my trigger hand so my grip is very consistent....

Thanks Dick....got lucky when I bought the Browning and got to choose the best wood the dealer had in his selection and the wood on the 73 came from Ernie Paulson in Chinook, Montana....best deals on the best gun wood back in the day (20 years ago)

I always found that I needed a stock with checkering especially if it rained while shooting. Otherwise, I found that the gun felt slippery. I felt more in control of the gun in inclement conditions with checkering.
