Custom Stock - Monte Carlo Beaver Tail for Bull or Target Rifle
This is a custom Monte Carlo stock made from a deep purple/orange, well figured hardwood - possibly black walnut. The stock is inletted for a tapered tang standard receiver, with a straight taper bull/target barrel. The barrel channel tapers from 1.2" at the receiver, to 1.0" at the forward end of the channel.
This stock is made in a beaver-tail bench rest style, with an oversize Monte Carlo comb and a flared heel on the grip - classic California styling. The craftsmanship of the stock is good, with nice shaping and quality construction. The receiver inletting is slightly crude, but very functional. The barrel channel is expertly constructed.
The stock has a lot of light handling marks, but no real damage. The vintage finish is shot and needs to be redone. A quality refinish on this nice piece of wood should make this stock a real showpiece. There are no significant problems such as cracks or oil staining.
