Newest Stock Build Job- 300 HH Thumb hole stock.

Finally finished it. This is my newest Stock Build project. This is a raw cut stock that a customer of mine found for his 300 H& H. He had a beat up old stock on his rifle and wanted to upgrade. He found this beautiful piece of Claro Walnut online and I did the rest. Some like to find their own wood because they enjoy doing so. But if you would like I can look for one for you as well. Keep in mind that this is and complete stock build, I can also simply refinish your existing stock. It is much cheaper and I can do amazing things to make your old stock shine like a new penny.

These are the steps I take to get the finished product from a rough stock like this.
*Inlet all metal to fit the action.
*Glass and pillar bed.
*Sand and contour the stock to size.
*Install recoil pad and sling swivels
*Oil rub, buff, polish & finish.
Hope that doesn't make it sound too simple, because it is an awful lot of work. I always tell myself when I am working on a project like this. "Good thing I enjoy doing this.

Finished Product

Somehow I managed to not get a good picture of the whole gun. I was so enthused at how well the wood turned out. The whole thing was a beauty and I will try to get a shot of it up here. The owner was thrilled. Let me know if you have a project like this for me. You will be so pleased you did. Email me with your questions, request for quotes, etc. Thanks, Gunsmith Jake.

New to blogging.

Hello all, Never blogged before but it seems to be another thing that I need to be doing. So this will be the blog for Gunsmith Jake. Since Jake is not a computer man, I (Brook Schira, wife of Gunsmith Jake) will be the narrator. I will use this to cover what we are up to and in turn tie it to our business of guns. Hopefully it will just keep you all interested and posted on what we are up to. Check us out at
