looking for someone to do checkering

I would like to know about a person in the south central or south east part of PA that does checkering at a reasonable cost .
I found one guy but I would have as much into the checkering as a brand new gun !

About 30 years ago, I bout ruined my eyes trying to checker stocks. Still have my old tools if anyone is interested. Look up Joel Russo in Harrisburg. He can send you in the right direction.

Checkering isn't going to be cheap. I doubt you'll find many that will do a good job for under $250 (panels, no wrap). You probably won't find many gunshop gunsmiths that will do checkering.

You get what you pay for, that's custom work that requires talent. Roverts estimate sounds about right, at a minimum. Probably buy a pretty nice aftermarket stock for what you'll pay for custom checkering.
