Default Nice

That is very nice , the pistol grip reminds me of john welhams early work on the shamels , pity i cannot see the other side . could be he converted it . johns later work is of antique furniture grade . in fact that is what he does now i believe . one of our lads Chris Lowe ex chairman of the BFTA wanted a stock made by john for his ripley . chris wanted the best but even then good blanks were hard to find . john went to an auction and rang chris saying that there was a nice piece of wood coming up . yep he said buy it . cost 700 then . nowadays that would be around the 1500 mark for a piece of exhibition grade wood , if you could find it .???
