I expect it depends heavily on the wood selected but what would be a ballpark cost to have a stock duplicated? This would be for a bolt-action, magazine rifle.

Thank you!

Good craftsmen using high end machines like a Hoenig, etc usually charge around $400 to $500+ for duplicating. It’s a lot more physical work than people actually think it is.

I’m not a stockmaker, but I have done a few of my own. I have worked on six duplicate stocks and a few “semi-inlets” such as Boyd’s. Two of the duplicates I was impressed with. One was from Jim Bisio and the other Chuck Grace.
There are a few others I have used that I would not use again.

Forgot to add, but two others that have been recommended by highly skilled gunmaker are Steve Bertram and Dan Rossitier. I have no personal experience with them, but great respect for the person who recommended them.

Thank you for the recommendation, I am currently only running my pantograph for myself and clients that I am stocking guns for, I am not able to offer it as a service currently.

You might try Gene Simillion as well, he has an excellent reputation for close tolerance work.

Dustin is spot on, few people understand how physically demanding that job is.

Thanks guys. Of course, I didn't include the entire story---a failing of mine. I bought a complete barreled action for an 1895 Lee Navy. I have been looking for a stock without much luck and had decided to go try and make a pattern stock, getting it duplicated when I finally get there. Then, wonder of wonders, an aftermarket stock shows up over on GB. I was trying to gauge my bid against the cost of duplication.

I appreciate the input!
