Greetings all:

I am having a custom .25-06 built on a 1940 Mauser action with a Douglas barrel and Timney trigger (also open sights and quick release scope mounts).
The project can't be completed until the the rifle is stocked. The project is as far as it can go, barreled, blued, etc. without the stock. However the stock is proving to be a problem. I knew it would be. The setup/look I am going for is a Griffin & Howe/Rigby look. Mauser actions are heavy so I want scant wood to cut down on some weight.
None of the stock companies have what I'm looking for, at least in an unmodified form.
What I'm looking for basically is an oiled walnut stock with pistol grip and forend checkering with a scant/Rigby forend. The scant/Rigby forend is negotiable but the finishing/checkering is not.
Can any one help with this issue? Know a good stock or stock-maker/someone that could finish off a decent black or semi-finished stock? Preferably near where the gun is being completed near Greensburg/Greater Pittsburgh area.

Thanks all!

Rifle stock

Joe Russo in Harrisburg is your man. He deals only in custom rife stocks.

You'd be hard pressed to find a better stockmaker than Craig.
