I know some of you have been looking for a source for good checkering and I wanted to pass along an individual I have had great luck with. I have sent 4 stocks to Bob Oates this year and all of them turned out spectacular. He has very reasonable rates and quick turn around. I just sent him my stock with pictures of pattern I wanted and he did the rest. He also made some very helpful suggestions on how to modify the pattern to work better on a couple of my stocks. Keep in mind Im not a stockmaker, Im sure my stocks were not as symmetrical as they should be! He can be reached st 989-773-4314 or by email at rdoatesmtphotmail.com. See below for examples of my stocks-

All of my jobs ran between $220-250. You can also go to Guns International under custom checkering in gunsmithing services and see some more examples of his work

I sent him a Mod 70 stock yesterday. Once he gets it we will decide work to be done and price.
