Another stock question

I was recently gifted a maple stock blank from the shop of an old (died 20 years ago) buddy of mine, by a family member of his. My buddy was an INSANELY accomplished muzzleloader builder.

I would like to re-stock my CVA Mountain Rifle with this piece of wood. I have no shop, no tools, no time and no ability.

How close to a finished product do stock duplicating machines come ?? Where would I find someone who has one ??

Join or just read the post under the "Gun Building" forum at this site. All they discuss in all of their forums are historical M\L's. No modern rifle talk is allowed!!

Also...sharp chisel's are a must. And I mean sharp!! Razor sharp!! I use stone's and then a strop on my chisel's....and I strop the chisel after 5 to 10 cuts. A sharp tool will not tear the wood and leave gaps.

If you go on youtube and search for F\L builds you will find this builder with a heavy German accent. I don't like his particular style of pistols, but he knows what he's doing. He took pieces of (I think it was leather) leather and stacked 'em up on like a "tube rotary sander" which chucked into a drill press. The final product was round of course, and he applied a polish to it.....then ran the drill press and did the final sharpening on that. Care is required as the tools come out sharper than any razor you could buy.

But that's a great way to cut wood without tearing it.

Thanks for the link.

Is/was there a discussion under Gun Building on stock duplicating machines ?? I couldn't find it.

having someone build you a stock will cost 4 to 6x what the gun is worth.
casey and Steeltrap like this.

Not sure it's a matter of cost, at this point.

The gun, as-is, shoots LIGHTS OUT. The blank is sentimentally priceless, so........

I probably said this before, but several years ago when Green Mountain was offering drop in flint barrels I purchased one. Cost $200 plus.....but the change in repeatable accuracy on my T\C was worth every penny. That first GM barrel is why my Leman build has a GM barrel as well....and it too shoots the "eyes outta fly's" at 100 yards!!
