Custom Stock Maker

I'm looking into getting a custom stock made for my stevens 311c 410 double barrell and was wondering if anyone on here had any suggestions for a stock builder they may have used. I tried to do a search and couldn't find anything and there's a ton of links on google and I couldn't make heads or tails of what was good and what wasn't. I thought I remember that there was a guy that lived near me in the Lancaster area that did it but I couldn't locate anything. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Custom Stock Maker

Probably not all that easy to find someone that'll make new handles for side by sides? Most only do rifle work, that I know of.

Got a bud that builds his own flintlocks and does beautiful stock work on them, but the varmint refuses to tackle making me new stocks for my old 20ga double.

Even offered to swap him one of the two 2"x8"x8' walnut planks I have, if he just uses a wee bit of 'em to make new handles for my shotgun.

Re: Custom Stock Maker

look up http://www.berniestemplingerdesign.com. Bernie makes stocks for everything and is a very skilled craftsman /artist. I have seen lots of his work plus he has done work for me . He is an avid shotgunner to boot.

Re: Custom Stock Maker

Thanks Bucky, I was looking for someone to do the checkering as well and he's not far from me. I just need to find someone to make me a stock from scratch now.

As far as Bansner's go I believe they only do rifle work and don't handle wood too often. If I'm not mistaken all of their stocks are cast and they use Howa actions.
