Custom Single Shot .22 Part 2

by Jim (the gunsmith)

In the previous post, I discussed a custom .22 project in the shop. Now it’s time to begin making a new stock sets for this firearm.

I run the rough lumber through the planer to smooth out the wood.

This is a nice piece of wood and will make a beautiful stock.

The wood is put in a manual operated stock duplicator and rough carved to shape. I use a softer piece of wood to make a cheek piece and glue it to an original stock before carving. This way, the new stock has a cheek piece as part of the new carving.

The rough carved stock fresh out of the machine. Next will be filing the wood to final shape with a wood rasp and rough sanding the surface while fitting it to the receiver with inletting black.
