Do you make stocks for Semi-Auto's, Shotguns, Lever Actions, Pistol Stocks, or
any 2-Piece Stocks?
We primarily make single piece stocks for bolt action rifles, as well as a handful of actions for semi-auto rimfire actions listed in our available inlets page.
2) How do I know which actions are available for the stock style and grade that I want?
3) Do you make finished, 100% Inlet Drop-In stocks as well?
The action inletting will be either a 99% "Press-Fit"
Inlet or a 96% "Semi" Inlet. Actions specified as a
99% inlet will usually bolt to the stock without any handwork. With our 99% "Press-Fit"
Inlet, only minor fitting for the action and bolt notch clearance is needed to produce a finished rifle with an
"action-to-stock" fit that is so nice and snug it will look like the wood grew
from around the metal! All of our stocks are unfinished and
are ready for final sanding and finish to to be applied according to the
4) I don't have a factory barrel on my action, can you cut the channel for my particular barrel?
Our stocks are generally machined to accommodate the various Factory Barrel
Contours for the particular rifle. On stocks with
a 99% Press Fit Inlet, (some exceptions - see available
actions list) we can cut a 1/2"
straight channel, #1 Contour, #3 Contour, #6 Contour, 1" Straight Channel cut, or
1/4" Straight Channel cut. Channels of 1" and over require a 2 1/4"
Varmint Forearm to be ordered as well. On stocks with a 96% inlet, we are able to machine a 1/2", 3/4",
1", or 1-1/4" straight channel grooves to allow a closer fit and less work for
customers with custom barrels on their actions.
We ask that actions not be mailed or shipped to us as we don't
provide gunsmithing services such as fitting or finishing the final product for
individual customers. However,
we would be more than happy to point you in the right direction where you could obtain
these services through a reputable gunsmith with reasonable prices.
We don't require customer supplied actions or factory stocks. If you are unsure which model or type of particular action it is that you have, please call us and we can probably identify it by asking only a few key questions. (818) 767-6097 ext.3. You may also want to check with a local gunsmith, gun shop, or the factory itself, if possible. We have patterns and house metal for all of the actions that we inlet stocks for. On rare occasions, if there is a discrepancy or question regarding the action type, we will contact you or request the stock or floorplate for verification purposes.
7) How much work will be required to do on the stock once I receive it?
stocks are fully shaped on the outside, and will require sanding and
finishing. We recommend starting with about 100 grit sandpaper, and
working your way up to 400 to 600 grit prior to finishing. The time required for this depends on the type of finish that
you desire and really depends upon your abilities. The stock can be
finished with your choice of oil, urethane, or other finishing compound you
prefer. There are various sites
on the internet dedicated to finishing a stock where you can find additional
information. Our stocks come with approximately 1" of extra material
on the end of the tip to allow the customer to shape it according to individual
taste. Some customers prefer to round the tip, while others will cut it
forward or backward at an angle, or just leave it flat.

8) When I order my stock, how long will it take for me to receive it?
Many of our stocks are made to order so that we can offer our customers myriads
options in stock styles, grades, action inlets, etc. The delivery time will vary according to the
style and action inlet ordered, and the time of year ordered. Popular actions such as Mausers, Remingtons,
Winchesters, etc., are cut more frequently than other actions such as older Sako
models, and various other low demand (oddball) actions. The normal production time for a stock is
currently running APPROXIMATELY 6 to 8 weeks, plus 1 week for shipping. Some stocks for uncommon actions, special
set-up's for custom features, left handed stocks, and mannlicher length stocks
can take a bit longer, around 8 to 10 weeks. Target / Bench Style stocks
take approximately 8 to 10 weeks for production, plus 1 week for shipping. These
lead times are an approximate average--some stocks will be completed sooner,
while others may take a bit more time depending on the setup and order volume
for a particular item.
Yes, we do carry some actions and style's in inventory. Please CLICK HERE! For Our Current Inventory. Usually, we have a selection of Mausers, Remingtons, Winchesters, etc., available in Claro Walnut Grades Economy through Semi-Fancy or Grade A. These stocks are usually available in Rollover, Monte Carlo, or Classic Styles only. Make sure to check out our bargain list for a listing of many special or discounted items from inventory.
10) How do I price the stock that I'm interested in?
First, select the a desired stock style from either our Sporter Styles, Standard Styles, or Target/Bench Styles. Once a particular style is selected, a screen with full details and pricing will appear. Simply select the hardwood and grade, or the laminate that you desire and the price will be reflected in the table to the right. You can also choose any of the available options or services for that style and any accessories desired. Simply add these prices into the total and add for shipping. Shipping charges & Dealer Pricing information are specified on every pricing page. All options available and prices for each style are shown on that style's pricing sheet. If a particular option or accessory is not present, this means that it is not available on that stock style.
11) I have a bolt action and don't see my action listed in your available actions list. Can I send you my stock to have the inletting copied?
First, please email or call us at (818) 767-6097 to determine if we have the correct pattern to inlet a stock for your action since we have patterns for many actions that we no longer normally machine stocks for. If we do not have a pattern, we may be able to use your stock for duplicating the inletting into one of our stock styles. This would be a special set up and an additional charge would apply depending on the type of pattern, action inlet, and other machine set up issues. Please call us to determine the additional charge. Special Set Up's do have a longer production time, so please verify the approximate lead time when ordering.
12) Can I send in my pattern or old stock and have the outside and inletting duplicated into one of your pieces of wood?
This depends upon the inletting, or the stock pattern supplied. If we duplicate a stock from you pattern, we will have to adapt it for use in our machinery, and the stock may be scuffed or marred during the process of duplicating. You will need to call us at (818) 767-6097 to determine if we are able to copy your stock or pattern, and for pricing information.
13) Can I send you a piece of wood to have cut into a stock in one of your styles?
Yes, we can cut your wood into any one of our stock style's. The dimensions of the blank need to be as follows: Minimum 32" long, Minimum of 6" wide at the butt, 2" wide at the forearm, and 2" thick. This is the absolute minimium size to produce a stock from it. A normal size blank would measure 34" Long, 6 1/2" wide at the butt, 2 1/2" wide at the forearm, and 2 1/2" thick. Please note: If your blank measures 2 1/4" thick, there may be a few flat spots on the stock but can be rasped out and still be shaped normally by the customer.
14) I'm a dealer, do I get a dealer discount when ordering?
Yes, all dealers receive a 20% dealer discount on their orders. Dealer discounts are available on all Hardwood Gunstocks, and many of the laminates. Generally dealer discounts don't apply on sale or promotional items, or target styles. To receive dealer pricing, please mail or fax us a copy of any of the 2 following supporting documents: 1) FFL 2) State or City Business License or Tax Permit (for fierearms or sporting goods related businesses only) Individuals can also qualify as dealers when a sufficient volume of stocks have been ordered in a given time frame. Please call for details.
15) Can I order a stock that is a combination of two or more styles? Can I order a Rollover style with a Target Style Flat Oval Forearm?
Most features of sporter style stocks are interchangeable between common styles. For example, you can request an Old Classic style to have no shadow line cheekpiece, and to have a tip & cap installed. However, features on Target Style stocks can not be mixed with a Sporter Style stock. For example, we cannot make a sporter style stock with a Target Style Forearm. Individual features on Target Style stocks such as the type of forearm, cheekpiece, etc. cannot be altered. For example, we cannot produce a Bench Rest Style stock with a flat oval forearm as this stock style is available only with the bench rest "flat forearm." However, the stock style most certainly can be modified by the customer to suit his or her own preferences.
16) Do you provide Rail Inletting, Pillar Blocks, Adjustable Cheek Pieces, Steel Butt Plates, Recoil Reducers, or Checkering on your stocks?
