Lately I’ve seen a few Winchester rifles with real ivory stocks. They are beautiful and I know there’s little chance I’ll ever be able to afford one.

However, I am working with a maker of faux ivory handgun grips to make me a set of faux ivory stocks for one of my 1894 Winchesters. The rear stock would be straight wrist with crescent butt and the fore stock is for a standard length rifle with octagon barrel. 

Cost will be about $200 per set plus shipping. The stocks would have to be custom fit to your guns metal parts to get a perfect fit.

I am still in the discussion stage but plan to have my stocks 3-D scanned into my CAD system very soon so I can scale up the size since the high quality resin does shrink a small amount while it cures.

The resin can be stained by the buyer or tinted when poured. Other custom effects or colors are also possible.

I would like to know if there’s any interest out there. I like a good project, especially when the gun can be returned to the original stocks with no damage.

I have both ivory polymer (Ajax Grips) and antique ivory grips for a 1911. While the Ajax grips are very high quality they just aren’t  quite the same. The polymer grips are more durable, not too worried about damage.
