Hardwoods/Laminated Woods

Richards Microfit Stocks, Inc.
Custom Quality Gunstocks Since 1948
Hardwood Grades

Important!
Richards stock blanks are priced according to grain layout, density, color, and figure.  Occasionally, a fancy stock may be graded down after machining from the blank because the grain is not perfect, or there is a flaw in the wood.  On the other hand, a stock can be graded slightly up if the overall quality of the stock warrants it.  Keep in mind when ordering a stock, that, the real beauty of the wood is not fully apparent until a stock is completely finished.  But for a preliminary look at the stock, you may sparingly apply lacquer thinner, acetone, or water to bring out the grain.

Economy Grade
Usually what we have available in this grade is plain Claro Walnut, which will finish up into a fine, dependable, utility stock.  This grade will have straight grain and may have some slight cosmetic blemishes.

Standard Grade
This is a good, sound, plain piece of Walnut with reasonable grain flow throughout the stock.  Occasionally, a very slight defect may appear and is filled when necessary.  (These are not factory seconds, as any flaw would be very slight)  This grade will provide you with a good, serviceable stock.

Select Grade
A selected piece of plain, dark Walnut with excellent grain flow through the entire stock and no defects or light wood.  Occasionally, some slight figure may appear.
