    Blank Cut From ............

    This Holland & Holland English Walnut Gun Stock I picked up at a gun show.
    A Satin MINWAX WBOM Polyurethane finish on an Antique Brass Bolt Action.

    Pretty pen, Les. Hard to be sure from the photo, but it looks like the gun stock was cracked. Is that the case?

    Vaughn,
    You can't see it in the photo, but the stock is cracked in the receiver section.

    Frank,
    I was told that this H&H stock to be built today would cost $2,500-$3,000.
