3 Lefty Precarves - SOLD
« on: June 26, 2019, 06:00:15 AM »
3 left hand precarve halfstocks for sale  (Wetted down to help see the grain).  All have cheek rests for a lefty.

1) Cherry Hawken 1” barrel channel.
2) Curly Maple PA  7/8” barrel channel (or could be opened up slightly for an octagon to round or round PA Fowler barrel). 
3) Curly Maple Southern  7/8” barrel channel.

Both 2 & 3 have good curl and a few scattered 1/16” diameter shallow worm holes.  See additional pictures.  Very minor, and of little consequence if you can even see them in the pics.  Shallow, and may likely go away completely with final shaping.  Note: These are good solid stocks, and many people would not even mention these minor marks.  I always like to err on the side of describing everything as fully and accurately as I can. 

$70 $65. $60 $50 each plus $10 to ship.  Or buy all three for $60 $55 $40 each and $20 total to ship all 3.

-Brian

What is about the max length of pull that these would have?

Using 2” behind the back of the barrel cut as the location of the front trigger, and measuring the LOP from there to the inside curve of the butt, they are as follows:

Hawken     14”
PA.            Anything you want, lots of extra wood.
Southern   14 3/8”

AHRG! :o It's me that needs the coffee! I didn't see the  1/2 stock statement....I was looking at those stocks thinking "boy, those seem sort of stumpy". It's my birthday, I think I'll just go back to bed. ::)

Is the Hawken stock a fairly dense cherry, or one of the slightly softer pieces?

Yes, this cherry stock is good dense wood, cut many years ago.  It’s also quarter sawn, and has good grain structure through the wrist.  Has a few darker lateral lines running length wise, which would add some nice character.  The butt end has been painted, and that’s what your seeing in one of the photos at the base of the stock.
