BACKGROUND
.

I have been in the Composites business for 25 years. Building racecar parts, contained air system helmet components, custom core boxes for foundries, etc. Until recently gunstocks were just a hobby to fund my own gun habit.

Back around 1993 a bench-rest shooter friend of mine came into the shop to show me his new stock. I shot my mouth off and said I could build a better stock than that. He said prove it. Being the stubborn ass that I am I had to try. I wanted to create a stock that came out of the mold with a better finish that was light weight and very rigid. Well that was easier said than done. Two years of spare time, three molds and about twenty stocks in the garbage, I finally had a product that I liked.

Then one day at a gun show in Edmonton I was introduced to Rod Schram from Rocky Mountain Rifles in Dawson Creek, British Columbia. He said my stocks were nice but he was building lightweight mountain rifles and I couldn’t possibly build a stock as light as so and so. Well I love a challenge, so Rod sent me a model 7 stock and I set out to prove him wrong. Well that was fun, after trying a couple of different moulds and techniques as well as a myriad of different composite materials each delivering different qualities to the finished product. I started to feel like Goldie Locks you know this stocks too brittle, this stocks too heavy, this stocks too hard to finish, this stocks too flexible. Finally after trying hand lay-up, vacuum bagging, bladder molding, and resin transfer molding. I settled on wet on wet compression molding, which allowed me much more flexibility in how I could configure each stock. Well it worked and I have been building him and a few other gunsmiths, stocks ever since.

Lately I have been getting some grief for how hard I am to find so I thought I better set up a web site.
