This stock was carved from black walnut & cherry. To get the laminations laid out like the original, the center section was thickness sanded to 0.444 and the two cherry sections were sanded to 0.333. It’s a lot easier to lay out a laminated stock, when you create an original stock. Making a close duplicate is much tougher. The last photo shows the original stock and the bottom plastic…(should have been metal) and my copy. Should I leave it like this, or thin the wrist of the stock and make the plastic floorplate blend into the wood? The recoil of a .357 diameter bullet of 250g at 2600fps is going to be fierce. I did use a 1” thick recoil pad on both replacement stocks.

That’s what I’m going to do this weekend. I’ve fitted the metal to both stocks. Now after all that precision work, I hogged out a lot of the bedding and I’ll glass them this weekend. The recoil lug has to have a perfect bearing surface against the stock.
