here is my first blank



and the finished product



as you see, my blank had a lot more meat on it that yours.

Here is my second custom stock

first the blank

Consult the Google Machine for shotgun stock duplicating. the interwebs is full of places that do that. Macon gun stocks starts at $75 to duplicate. That should be for a semi-inleted stock. It is the inletting that costs.

The blank I have is about 3 1/2 feet long. You don't see if from the pic.

Ok. Then you might be good to go. I forgot to say before but you can save some money by not having a stock maker do the checkering for you. It is done by hand in most cases and this is a value added that costs money. Rather, send it to somebody else who has a laser engraver. You can finish the stock yourself with tung oil to do a really nice job and save even more money. I think you can get a stock and forend out of that blank for for desired price range if you do some homework
