Project Information

This family treasure was purchased new in the 50's by our grandfather in San Antonio Texas. It has since been passed down to our father and then my older brother. The stock was tired and well used. My brother commissioned me to re-stock it. I found this myrtle wood blank and went to shaping, in letting, cutting, sanding, and polishing. The first few coats of finish exposed the beautiful tiger stripes showing the grain going in two different directions. Its now done and ready for the range. A personal touch of engraving the names of 5 generations of Artzt owners (includes my brothers son and grandson) is engraved under the custom fit recoil pad.

Cheers
Darren
