Frequently Asked Questions

1. Are all gun stocks finished? No, all stocks are UNFINISHED unless otherwise noted. You may see a picture and think the stock has a finish on it, but that is not the case. I use mineral spirits so you can see what the color of the wood is like.

2. Will gun stocks have the channels and opening for barrel actions? Yes, all gun stocks will have the channels and openings cut for the barreled action, but all stocks are undersized and may need a small amount of wood removed to fit your action and your barrel. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT MY STOCKS ARE NOT 100%.

3. Will I have to fit my gun stock to my metal work? YES, each gun stock will still require a minimal amount of final fitting for installation. Please do not send your metalworks to us as we are not set up to fit them to your stock. I generally make all my stocks slightly undersized. Small handtools are required to fit your stock such as a rasp, file, etc. If you feel that you are not qualified to fit your stock, then it is highly recommended that you contact a local gunsmith to help you with your installation.

4. Will I have to sand the gun stock? Yes, sanding will be required. I recommend beginning with 100 grit sandpaper and ending up with 400 grit paper.

5. Can I have my own piece of wood duplicated? NO, at the current time, I'm not accepting any hardwood from a customer for machine work.

6. Will you return my original gun stock? Yes, if we use your stock for a pattern and you would like it returned, then there will be additional shipping charges to return it to you. I will try my best to not scar or make any marks on your pattern stock but there are times when that is not avoidable.

7. Shipping charges? Shipping charges vary by location. Most of the time we can ship stocks for approximately $25. per order if you live in the lower 48 states. There are additonal charges for overseas as well as Alaska & Hawaii. We generally use USPS Priority Mail for our shipping carrier, but we have other options if you prefer a different carrier, prices may vary.

8. What is the time frame for receiving my duplicated gun stock? We will make every effort to complete your order as quickly as possible. Most of our orders are in and out of the shop within a couple weeks of receiving them. From time to time, there may be additional time involved and you'll be notified of that as well. You will also be notified when your gun stock is ready to be shipped.

9. Gun stocks with thumbholes: Any pattern with a thumbhole may cost an extra $50.00 for the machine work depending on the model.

10. Payment Accepted: We accept Pay Pal, Visa, Mastercard, Check or Money Order. You may pay online via PayPal or call us with your credit card number.

11. Return Policy As long as the gunstock has not been altered or worked on in any way, we will gladly refund your money. Please return it within 7 days along with a letter stating the reason for the return. We want you to be satisfied with our work but keep in mind that anytime we do any type of custom work, there are no refunds on those.

12. Sales Tax California residents add 7.25% sales tax.

13. Repair Work Any pattern of yours that I use which would require repair work before it could be put on the duplicating machine may involve additional charges. Call first for a price estimate.
