    Default wood stippling

    Bizarre as it may sound, I think this might work out okay on the right sort of gun. From the gunheads of Pakistan:

    "What is Wood Stippling? Well!.....Its checkering's ugly cousin which is done to impart a better gripping surface on wood stock for a better hold/handling of a firearm."

    That's interesting
    But I think that's one of those things that's like a work of art, it will only look right on certain things and I don't care for it on that shotgun he did, but on the right firearm I think it would be a great looking personal touch.

    Here's two pics of the shotgun from the link

    Have to agree Coils,,and BTW I'm glad to see you back around again Bud,,

    I had a set of fancy thumb rest grips that were stippled and they looked decent and were fairly grippe and I really liked them allot. I can't remember if they were on a Buckmark or a Ruger MK series I had at one time,,don't recall right now. On one or the other anyways.

    There should be some sort of a punishment for doing that to a fine piece of wood!

    I must admit,, I've seen some God Awful looking target guns that were stippled in my day, but some sure did shoot!!! Ugly or not!!!

    There was one in particular that sticks in my mind from way back,, a Springfield target rifle that was the most cobbled up ugly looking stock you ever saw in your life,,a mismatched wood cheek riser, half fitted, stippling, misfit curved adjustable target butt plate and just real sloppy done overall with no finish on it, red rust on the action and barrel that was in the white and it just plain looked like crap,,,but BOY DID THAT RIFLE SHOOT!!! I never did beat that frigging guy at match's, he'd whip my ass every week-end by 1 or 2 points,,GERRRRRR. Mine shot great too,,but mine was Pretty,,,,,,he was just a better shot I guess. Pretty just didn't matter,,,,,
