    Stock makers in NZ?

    Iím contemplating having a nice stock built for my BSA .222, but my research is telling me that most of the well known stock makers have retired now.

    Is there anyone out there that is still in the business of making quality classic styled rifle stocks?

    If you can't beat them, beat them.
    They will be expecting you to join them, so you'll have the element of surprise.

    I know a guy that does wood. And I do steel. Between us we can nut something out but you're a bit far away for a decent fit-up.

    Cool, mine is a hunter too. Do you have any pictures of it with the new stock by any chance @6x47 ?
