Will suit ANY sidelock ejector.
Esp suit double rifles, where integrity and strength are needed in the head of stock. Any boxlock. All singles incl Farquharsons and antique underlever Jones type patent incl most bore rifles.

100 % structural integrity and hard as a brick, medium weight.
Will go a lovely rich chestnut background colour, with Tru-oil or CCL.
Compare to the green-grey-brown on most Aust'n sourced blanks.
This very old straight and honest blank will look 'right', on pre 1939 British.
Certainly plenty of width for large cheekpiece..
Straight sawn, should lift when shaped.
Overlay pic 13 3/4" Ruger #1 with lots of room at both ends (19 1/2"OAL).

Remember please this is SIXTY + (60) year old (plus) French grown.
Bought this at Bienfelds in 1991 from Jim Preslik along with a few French rifle blanks from the 60's.
Air dried originally and at a constant 20C and 70 RH in my gunroom.

Length 500mm Width 60mm Butt 175mm +/- approx.

Noticeable fiddleback front to back and 90 degrees across the centreline on most angles. (Pictured with meths and I admit, a little too much water.)

No colour 'compression' or enhancements just as taken with phone camera and cropped but iphone camera tends to redden things.

Freight: Add $50, with tracking and insurance
