Whew! I’m glad this one is done!

I have been on and off with this project for quite some time. Years in fact! I made this for a fellow airgunning friend.

It is black walnut, with ebony and quarter sawn sycamore for the grip cap. I did the inletting with the router, drill press, x-y vise, and router table. The outside shape was done with the band saw, drill press, router, table saw, and mostly with files and sandpaper. I used the power tools to remove the bulk of the material and files and sandpaper for the rest.

I used Waterlox original formula for the finish. I think it’s a bit too glossy so in about a week, I will knock the gloss down with some 0000 steel wool and then bring it to a satin sheen.

The rifle is a .22 cal Beeman (Weihrauch) R9 air rifle. (pellet gun)

The brass screw cups on the fore end were made by my airgunning buddy that this stock is made for. I also inlaid some ebony around the brass screw cups. I had also planned to cut some checkering on the grip but I was too chicken to do it because I thought that I may mess it up. I think that would have added to the overall look but maybe on the next one. I have not attempted to cut any checkering before. This would have been a first.

I love that detail at the bottom of the grip.
Nice job. Whether it is too glossy is a matter of taste.
I would like it either way.

You did beautiful work. I love the look of that stock.. it seems like it would fit my hands and shoulder very well.

Outstanding Stock! What an amazing amount of work to not only produce it but make it fit the barrel trigger assembly.
