I hope so.


If not, drop me a note. I'd love to have your problem and could take it off your hands at the right price... smile

Brian, Get the grain enhanced if you want, just don't end up like folks that get hooked on plastic surgery because they never like what they see in the mirror. D.J. did a great job to commemorate your service. Think of it like the rug makers who make a mistake on purpose because nothing is perfect.

I hadn’t seen the pictures when I posted. That said, I stand by what I posted, and will add-I wish I had that “problem”. Feel free to donate the gun, as is, to my cause.

Best,
Ted

I hadn't seen the pictures when I suggested taking an eighth of an inch off the right side. The comment I would have made, had I seen the pictures is "That's what English Walnut is supposed to look like." Leave it alone. By the way, why don't we know who the stockmaker is?

Nobody can tell you how you should "feel" about your custom stock.
It is not plain on one side to my eye, just not similar figure.
I would be letting it settle in with me a while, before deciding on enhancement.
It's a product of nature.
I've had my disappointments with custom work, but they have been where the gun maker pleased himself rather than the client. That's not what I see here.

I'm kind of laughing to myself. I originally thought the "real" left side was the side Brian was disappointed in. Now, I understand that he likes the left, and is questioning the right side. We all have different tastes, but when I saw Brian's picture, I preferred the right side.
