Where to Buy a Custom Rifle Stock

If you are interested in owning the perfect rifle, you will want to take a close look at buying a custom rifle stock. There are a number of benefits to owning and using a custom rifle stock. In addition, there are a number of different locations where you can buy such a piece.

A custom rifle stock made of fiberglass has a number of advantages over wood. Fiberglass stocks will offer the shooter maximum performance and will hold the point of impact and remain stable indefinitely. A fiberglass stock is light. It handles quickly and easily. It is not affected, as wood is, by humidity, rain, and extreme temperature variation, you can rely on a good fiberglass stock to be accurate and maintain its excellent shooting qualities regardless of the weather conditions.

A custom rifle stock also comes in solid wood and the nice part of having a custom rifle stock designed for you is that you can choose the wood and get precision-fit rifle stocks finished to varied degrees of completion, in a number of different geometries, depending upon your preferences. You can choose a fully-inletted, fully finished stock precision-fit to your action. Then add custom options such as checkering, forends, buttplates, etc. And for those of you who are custom stockbuilders and gunsmiths, you may wish to select a semi-inletted, semi-shaped unfinished stock if you prefer to do the finish work yourself.

There are a number of different manufacturers of custom rifle stock products:

Richard’s Custom Rifles

Claude Gatewood Custom Rifles

Chuck Hawks Custom Rifles

These different manufacturers of custom rifle stock products have developed Internet websites in recent times. Through these websites, you can make arrangement to have your own custom rifle stock created by one or another of these well seasoned professionals.
