Cost to have stock checkered/refinished?

Postby GomerPyle » Mon Jul 14, 2014 10:20 am

This stevens 20g I'm looking at has smooth wood stocks, no checkering. and a lighter finish. how much would one expect to spend having a gunsmith carve just some normal checkering into the handgrip area, and then re-stain it with a darker finish, just to kinda "fancy it up"?

here's a pic of the gun (for some reason my browser is cutting off the right side of the pic, but you get the idea)

At the advice of my attorney, I issue the following disclaimer:

Well, are you gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?

I don't know if she does staining but for just checkering the grip only should run about $110 if the price list is accurate. Apparently she use to do checkering for Kimber in Oregon and comes highly recommended. Though staining is easy enough for you to do at home for cheap.
