Default Stock

HI up jos , merry christmas . the stock on chris's ripper was a one off by john welham . chris decided he wanted the best wood money could buy for it and asked john to keep an eye out for some exhibition grade walnut . anyway john rang up chris and told him he was at a sale and there was a piece there that would do the job . 700 for the blank . now remember your average custom stock was about 50 ready to put on the gun . this was without john's money for the work . and this was 15 or more years ago , be worth thousands now , if you could find a blank like it . chris used to flaunt it around in front of you . i use to pee him off by saying that it looked like a piece of my wardrobe ( the veneer type ) happy day's and what a beautiful stock ??? HOLLY
