This stock was made for HW77 177cal airgun.
I carved it for collectioner from Bosnia.
It is made of high grade Turkish walnut.
Grip cap inlay (black wood) made of Polish black oak.
This piece of oak was found in crusaders well dated XIV century so it is pretty unusual thing.
Finish: traditional oil finish – my own mixture.
Wood was sealed with french polish.
Stock has adjustable buttpad.
Grip stipling made with dremel tool inside double grove frame.
Notice small engravings- signature of new owner also engraving of my Parsley leaf
on the bottom of the grip cap.
Gold colour reserved for my highest standard only :)

Hope You will llike it.

As an air rifle guy, I’m officially jealous of this.

Sweet, my Crosman 760 may not justify this kind stock.

Like it? I absolutely love it!!! This is one of the most outstanding stocks I believe I’ve ever seen. The wood is top grade and exquisite. I’m a big fan of Turkish walnut and have it on my two Caesar Guerinis. The pistol like grip is way beyond cool, but I wonder about stress in magnum calibers like .338 and up. The grip stippling comes off very nicely, even though prefer checkering of 22 or 24 lip. And, the grip cap and signature are the crowning piece. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to seeing more of your work.

That is a beautiful stock. You turned the air gun into a family heirloom. My Benjamin Trail would look awesome with one of those:-) Thanks for sharing!

Hi all,

wow thanks all for such words!
Im very honoured to hear that from other wood workers!
Very happy!

Blackcherry:
it is made with dremel tool.
High speed rotary spindle- small multi tool- very handy for detailed work.
Im using Dremel 300 model.
There are also tones of various bits to it….
For me one simple rounded bit from dental shop – works best.
It is made by boring/puncturinng dot next to dot -very close to each other.
Patience is needed…. hundreds of such small dots need to be done for such texture.
Actually when You get some practice – it goes pretty fast.
Hope it will help.

regards
LP
