I added my .02 and bragged that my copy of that stock was very tight. Later on I traded that stock figuring I could just order another one, which I did.
Well, the new stock laid around my shop for months until this afternoon when I tried a barreled action in.
You guessed it. Lots of gaps
I don't recall who the discussion was with but I guess Iíll eat my words.

Which reminds me...I need to drag out my 8x60s and wrap some wood around it. Anybody got a spare cocking piece they can part with too?

Jason, there's a really nice guy on GB that has a load of unissued 1909 cocking pieces, I think I can talk him into sending you one.

Though I've heard good things about James Anderson and intend on trying him next time.

What is conventional wisdom regarding purchasing a commercially semi-inlet stock versus providing to the same shop a well-fitted pattern of same stock? Said differently, and trying to keep all other factors constant; am I better off sending a stockmaker my well-fit pattern or ordering an inlet stock by name? Will duplication of my pattern be better than the generic pattern of the stock maker? Are the tolerances performed on pattern tighter than stockmaker's "generic" pattern?
I hope this is on-topic for this thread
