Biathlon Walnut Rifle Stock

Finally something to post about… Or more like finally some time to post what I’ve been working on….  I’ve made rifle stocks in the past, but not in the last couple of years.  Well orders have flooded in all of a sudden (when it rains it pours…).  Here is the first of 7.  It’s a custom stock designed for a local athlete who came just shy of a medal at last year’s national championships.  The design was mostly his suggestions, and they are loosely based on a German stock maker named Brislinger.

I’m quite happy with how it turned out, and I tried out a new finish on it which I’m thrilled with the results of.  I spent a long time picking out the wood, and while you can’t see it from the pictures, there is some sap wood on the other side of the stock, giving it a nice two-toned look. Below is one of his first test groups… 98 out of 100 is an incredible score, and can’t be solely credited to the stock, but I’m also his coach, so I can take some of the credit…
