Gunstock Wood Grades

Not All Gunstock Wood is Equal. We’re Here to Help You Decide.

The choice of gunstock wood involves a combination of functional and aesthetic considerations. There are many ways to measure wood quality, and no one system brings together all grades and applications.

We recommend first studying our collection of rifle and shotgun wood grade examples, chosen from our restoration gallery. Some stocks have been restored and refinished, while others are replacements crafted by our in-house gunstock makers. You’ll find multiple grades in both American and European walnut varieties. We’ve also included a selection of checkering and carving examples as a handy reference.
