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.

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...

Ok, I'll share.. Below is an SKB model 880 Crown Grade in 12 gauge and it's my absolutely favorite shotgun.. According to Ithaca (I have a letter from them somewhere around here) they made/imported only 60 of these; half with 30" barrel, half with 32's.. Mine's a 30". A few 880s were made as a combo set and a few in 20 gauge, but overall these are quite rare.. I bought this brand spankin' new in 1980 and it's still in better than 98% condition..

I take it out about once a year for a round of trap just for kicks.. And yeah, it still breaks clays with the best of 'em.. I wouldn't sell it for anything..

Part of it's the lighting, but mainly it's my mistake. blush I had put it into the barrel to amonia fume when I got a call which took me out of town right pronto. I forgot to take it out of the barrel and no amount of time with the butt would make them match.

I love that checkering pattern on your SKB. I've considered something similar to that on my A5 but as dificult as that stuff is to chisel, it might be a nightmare to checker.

Hey pullit, thanks for the pic. I still haven't read up yet on how to do that.

I wish. I used the old beat up factory butt to make a pattern that fit me properly and then had Donnie Gemes duplicate it on his pantograph. Sure wish I were that talented though, wouldn't be working a 7-3 five day week at the plant. Semi-inlets are as far as I have advansed so far.

This is true, Old World Craftsmanship. This is a 10 bore on a massive 8 bore frame. A beautiful piece of wood with painstaking handfitting in both wood and locks. A Burmingham England gun with Westley Richards action, Stanton sidelocks, Thomas Kilby & Sons damascus barrels. The engraving is fine and the fences around the hammers as well as the hammers themselves, speak of nothing but craftsmanship. A pleasure to own and shoot, but a tad heavy for a day in the field. It has 32 inch barrels and weighs 12 1/2 pounds....

You sir, make me green with envy.
The only 'old world' double I have is a 1915 Husqvarna Mod.20. But I will brag, she's a lot lighter than 12 1/2#.

Now I'm gonna' hafta' clear my bench again to put a backdrop down.
