Description: Replacement stock for a Winchester Model 1886 straight grip, crescent butt plate butt rifle. This stock is for the lighter, shorter style butt plate used mostly after 1890.

This stock is made of American Black Walnut. It is 90% inletted, shaped and rough sanded. The inletting is tight and the stock is oversized. It is not designed to have action and barrel “dropped in” with a little sanding and finishing. It needs to be fit, then sanded to the metal’s contour, stained and finished as desired. Practiced stock makers spend hours fitting and finishing stocks to guns. Amateur craftsmen should take longer! The work is exacting and tedious if great results are to be obtained. Slow and steady beats fast and hard almost every time. One can always take a little more wood away, but it’s mostly impossible to put it back.

This stock is more than 20 years old, so it is dry. There will be little, if any, shrinkage when finished. A stock may not be individually pictured. A representative example is pictured. Wood is not perfect. There are small knots and natural flaws in any wood. The color often varies. It will sometimes be necessary to use stain creatively for uniform color. Sometimes small holes or cracks will need to be filled. Anything which appears in the pictures as a stain or spot is superficial, and will sand away. These are all problems gun manufacturers have, and they solve them just as I’ve mentioned. If you are a Do It Your Selfer, read a book or get online and do some research. Ask questions BEFORE you start. Good advice may save you time, or even a stock. Good luck!
