OK I will admit that I am a gun nut and have a few custom rifles, but shotguns are my thing. I really like figured wood and have been known to buy a gun just because of the figure in the wood. So let's see your shotguns. The rifle guys like to show their stuff off, so why not us shotgun nuts.

I will start:
My K-80 30" trap barrels with Briley screw in chokes and sub gage tube to shoot skeet with. The stock was custom made to fit me and has 32 lpi checkering.

It all started in the early 80's with this gun. It is a Ruger Red Label 20 ga with the blued receiver.





this is my trap gun. A Browning Special Trap with 32" barrels and an Anton Rollover custom stock.

Next up is my pride and joy. It is a Winchester 101 XTR light weight that belonged to my best friend. When he got killed his wife gave me this gun and I had this custom stock made for it a tribute to him.
It is a 20 ga with right at 28" barrels and 32 lpi checkering. I ask for 20 lpi as this is my field gun but the stock maker said it was too nice a piece of wood not to do 32 lines on, so that is what I got.





note the way he did the patterns and had them tie together with just diamond. He told me what he was going to do, but I did not understand until I say it myself.

that is no chunk of firewood sir, that is a great looking stock.
Is that an A-5 or a Model 11 or one of the other A-5 clones?

Thanks for the compliment, but ya' ain't seen it in person.

She's a pre-war (1939) A5 in 16 gauge. Since I didn't want to molest the factory barrel I added a spare and had it tubed.

All in all I should have turned it over to Donnie, but a fella's got to try his first tang gun sometime. Do yer'self a favor, steer away from burl woods. They're a PITA to get an even surface and then the finish will foam until the seal is complete. This one took 6-7 coats of thinned AG before it quit foaming.

Excellent work.. Is it just the pix and light combo that makes the fore-end look more reddish than the buttstock?

Very nice piece 'o wood...
