Joe West Rifle Stocks

Recommended Posts

I first chatted with Simon of Joe West Rifle Stocks back at the Newark show; chats rolled on and a short while ago I asked Simon if he thought he could put an A-5 onto a Ruger 10-22 (I wanted to create a garden practice rifle).

 

Well – on Friday my package arrived. A gorgeously coloured and perfectly shaped stock with all the kit required to finish it.

The enclosed instructions described a requirement for some sanding before starting to use the provided tru-oil; but the wood was so smoothly finished that I leapt past that and straight to the oiling!

 

The stock is a lovely A5 shape and the inlet for the 1022 was literally perfect:

Time had also been taken to match the stock profile to the rear of the 1022 action – impressive attention to detail when you consider this was a nutty request for a fullbore stock!

 

With the oil coats applied, I shot it today for the first time; a bit of “25yd benchrest”:

Pretty pleased with the result too from a bog standard 1022 that's gathered dust for a bunch of years; these are my first 2 five round groups - the stock held it like a tuning fork:

It’s a bloomin lovely package – only shot it for an hour this afternoon and I had high ‘grin factor’ it’s turned my 1022 into a solid ‘real rifle’.

 

Really, really impressed with the quality and ease of preparation ...........and very very pleased :)

Ive had one of Simons stocks provided for a build a little while ago, the finish was very very good for the Tikka Inlet, only minor work required.

 

id certainly recommend anyone consider one of these stocks if looking for a laminate stock of quality.

Simon /Joe have just completed a F class stock for me. Customer service has been way beyond first class, I will do a full write up when it has been painted.

 

I Highly recommend these guys.

Many thanks for the nice comments chaps. Sorry Elwood, I might beat you to it abit, as I just could not help myself and have put the same shape stock on my Bat. Just need to work out how to upload photos.

Excellent Simon, I look forward to seeing the photo's. I'm off to Neil's tomorrow (hopefully) to see the finished in the flesh stock.
