I need to have the stock replaced on my H&H double rifle. I have a beautiful piece of English walnut to use. I need some recommendations of who does the best work and how long it takes to get it done. I live in Ohio. Does Turnbull do stock duplicating?

John has an excellent reputation. Before you send it to him you may speak with your stocker, he may have his own requests regarding how closely he would like it profiled etc. Additionally if the pattern has any issues they should be addressed before it goes to the duplicator. I spend quite a bit of time getting my patterns in top shape before I put them in the machine. It makes a big difference.

SKB-
Are you using a Hoenig?

A +1 for John- he has done four for me. A recent conversation with a stock maker friend indicated that John has really improved his turn around time, but of course, what that is currently, only John can tell you.

I built my machine from scratch. It is very similar to an early Don Allen.

I can tell you that Al Lind has done several very nice duplicates for me. I'll post a few pics of my machine later if time allows.

SKB I would like to see pictures of your setup. I have a heavily modified Gemni duplicator using linear rails and bearings with a table which weighs a ton when loaded down with shot to dampen vibration. I tried to buy a Allen machine but they did not know if or when they or would make them at the time. At the time I was willing to invest ten K or more for a duplicator.

My current setup works well and I find most problems are pattern centered or operator error/learning curve. When in doubt I cut a practice plain blank first. Since I only cut for myself time is not money. If in the trade I never could cut extra blanks to figure out or learn what I need to learn to duplicate a good stock. As a hobby stocker I probably be better off to pay others to cut my blanks if I did the math. But in this hobby math is often best left out.

Please let me know how the stock looks when you get it back. Also, I have to build up some areas that are below the metal. What is the best material to use to build up low areas before I send the stock out?
