Hi All,

Is anyone out there into making rifle stocks?

As a rapidly growing teenager I needed to make a couple of stocks for my Slavia 618 as I outgrew the original junior-sized one that came with the rifle. Ended up making stocks for my friends as well and learned how critical a properly fit stock was too fast and accurate shooting.

Fast forward 50 years and into my second childhood I am back shooting pellet guns; making wooden bows and slingshots. I’ve sold most of my powder-burners to finance my airgun addiction and am back to making custom stocks for them.

Attached is a picture of my (original) Slavia 618 with a new stock that I recently made from pieces of maple and cherry that I rescued from the firewood pile.

I was just wondering if anybody was modifying or crafting stocks for their rifles.

Hank

Being shaped and glued-up as you go, these stocks are actually quite easy to make. Thank you!

I did a report on the process I used on the PyramydAir blog. Here is a link if you are interested in seeing the process...

Yes will do as soon as I get everything prepared, meanwhile this was the grip that I have tested creating.

Lovely stock Vana!
I'll have to look up that process very interesting looking.
I've also made stocks for my rifles and pistols.
There's something very special about appreciating something that you made yourself .
Here is my 1322 carbine I built years ago. I bought the stock from three pieces of maple I laminated together.

Very nice Walther!!!

Did you machine the adjustable but-plate yourself or are they commercially available?

I like working with maple because it is such a close-grained wood - that and I have a lot of maple growing on my property so it is readily available.

Attached is a picture of a laminated maple/walnut stock I made for my FWB 124. I was experimenting with a horizontal high-contrast build up.

Thank you
I fabricated the aluminum butt plate myself as well as the afjustable cheek rest hardware.
Really love the look of that laminated FWB 124 stock very striking!

I thought that stock looked familiar.
Vana2, I saw that report back in March. Well done.

Cheers!

Some excellent craftsmanship on display here. I've been toying with the idea of putting together a 2260 with a stock made by myself.
