I want to purchase a wenig ladies shotgun stock for my fiance and her remington 1100. Their "machine inletted/DIY" stock goes for $100.
Their "completely finished stock, hand fitted to shop gun" is $350.
I am looking for a gunsmith in Northern Colorado or Denver or Colorado Springs that can finish inletting and hand (or laser) checker it. I'm not looking for fancy checkering at all. This would be for the buttstock only.
I am hoping that gunsmith fess would be considerably less than the $250 difference in my two above choices.
I'm not oppsoed to shipping the gun off so I may post this in general firearm discussion as well.

Gunsmith I used to work for made most of his money on stock work.

There is a shop on 287 between Loveland and FTC, I believe they do stock work. Sorry, I don't know the name of the shop for sure, maybe action arms?


Thats the one.

So in the match of things, you are forgetting that the stock needs to fitted to here, such as drop at heal, drop at comb, cast and cant, pitch, and even LOP with the recoil pad.


...Wow. I think I'm in over my head
