Handcarved from Walnut. This was a very tedious project and I set it aside several times over a couple years and finally finished it. The stock is finished only with several coats of gunstock oil and hand rubbed with 0000 steel wool with the final coat polished with a hand-drill buffer. I did not do the forend, but only the stock to replace a cracked factory stock.

That is nice. Fit’s the look of the gun well.
I’d like to make a gun stock someday. What tools did you use for the shaping?

A variety of hand saws, a finish sander with various grits and a lot of hand work.

The stock turned out nice. The finish fits the gun nicely. It has that used look to it so it blends with the rest of the gun.
