+1 on the "after" pics. Nice stock, too, Mike. I ordered a CS500 from them for my R1 a few months back and was very pleased. They're plain, straight grain walnut for the most part, but you can ask them for an upgrade for a few bucks more, which I did. Ended up with a piece with lots of figure and fiddleback in the butt, but very little forward of the grip. The rosewood cap is a nice touch too. It's definitely not what you'd get from one of our Domestic custom stock makers, but it's also quite a bit cheaper and a heck of a lot nicer than factory.

Mine was a fairly massive stock, but I didn't mind because an R1 is a big rifle to begin with, and I'm tall and have big hands, but the HW95/98 action is fairly trim. I'm very curious whether that stock is trimmer as well. Regardless, can't wait to see the final product.

This stock feels lite it should be a perfect match  for the 95.

I am very happy with my choice  of  stock design  and  the wood grain is  better than what I expected

I have a R  1  in  the goudy stock  so I would not want a custom stock for that one.

I'll post  when it  gets done  I ordered a hw 98 barrel  for it also , its  on its way from the UK  that should look  cool also

Mike,  I bet that will make a nice gun. Good luck with the project and can't wait to see the finished product.

Yeah  I  think so  too,  she shouldn't be to heavy  of  a gun compared to  a lot of others, I did consider getting it  for the hw 97 K  but  I felt  the Th stock would suit  the hw 95 better  and I like the 97 K  stock. I dont mind a heavy gun but  its nice to have different types, different weights  etc

I was bumbling through some older posts and came across this one again - what happened to the "after" pics, Mike? Show us the goods! Curious how the R1 with the sleeved barrel looks and shoots too!

I been revamping and expanding  my lathe room , adding  more  space and setting  up  for  more shop capabilities and its consuming all my leftover time from the work week

the custom stock still in the box  so I have not put that together, I also been working  on two previous projects  that I ran into  several issues I had  to  overcome.

Ill be glad when they are done cause I have a lot more projects I want to get done  🙂 

Thanks
