The following semi-shaped stock blanks feature authentic styling, proper for the original designs. These stocks are avaliable two ways:
PRE-SHAPED STOCKS - Barrel and ramrod channels are neatly done; finish is very smooth. Stock is shaped according to style chosen.
PARTIALLY INLETTED PRE-SHAPED STOCKS - Like the standard pre-shaped stocks, barrel and ramrod channel are neatly done; finish is very smooth. Stocks are partially inlet for lock, trigger, breech/ tang and other parts as noted. Having these parts 90% inlet not only saves the builder many hours of labor, it eliminates the problem of determining the exact placement of each part.
Grading is done on a scale of 1 to 4. Grade 1 shows little curl, often confined to a small surface area. Grades 2 and 3 show progressively more curl with better distribution. Grade 4 shows dramatic curl over 80% or more of the stock.
