I have a 7mm Mag, 2-piece auto with a chip in the stock. The gun currently has standard, boring wood. I’m thinking about having a new stock and matching forend made with upgraded fancy wood.

It’s the same old story. The carpenter’s wife has a house falling apart, the plumber’s wife(or husband I guess) has leaky pipes. Well, I sell thousands of highly figured gunstock blanks each year but I have yet to have a single gun made from my own wood.

I can’t pay cash for the work building a new stock but can pay in very high quality, dry, gunstock blanks. I will have to check the model number of the gun but it is a standard 2-piece stock.

I’m looking for high-quality work. The gun will be used for deer hunting and target practice. If the craftsmanship is good, it will be featured on my website and displayed at major wood shows, with credit to the stock maker.

Anyone interested?? If so, let me know.


Thanks, Eric.

Beautiful blank. That’s going to look fine as a stock.

He’s not close. He’s here in Georgia

Chris Knerr

I’ve known him for years. We were both on the board of directors of the Woodworkers Guild of GA.

Take a look at his website and if you like get in touch with him.

I’ve sent him a link to this post.
