My flintlock CVA mountain rifle is of modest, low end maple. I just wanted a mountain rifle in flintlock so I could set it next to the TC PA flintlock and remember why I haven't purchased another CVA!
Oh no CVA had some real high grade maple. These stocks are very hard to find though. I regret selling the 3 mtn rifles stocked in maple that i used to have. But... you can't hang onto all of them.

Wait till ya see the stock im workin on now! Hoooweeee! This is one beautiful chunk of walnut.

I thought it was a Lyman kit stock you were doing for someone? Lyman varried little on their walnut stocks. I don't argue that a person could vastly improve the appearance of a stock Lyman finish but it's not high grade wood to start with. Their finish always reminded me of Danish oil?? If you owned a few nice CVA stocks how about posting one to share with us. I'd like to see a factory high grade mountain rifle. In fact I'd be interested in purchasing a really nice one.

I can't be crazy...there's no CVA with a high end stock with actual figure/curl/ burl, stripes, whatever you call nice wood that was a standard factory offering, can't be, they were only $99.99 and most of that was for the box!

Yep! Even the box is better than a TC.

i cant upload the GPR stock pics yet due to bandwidth but i can guarantee you, this is the nicest wood i've ever seen on a GPR. Lots of dark curls and pattern in this one, not a weak spot in it.

FG, won't wet sanding continue to raise/open the grain each time causing you to simply repeat the process? I tend not to wet sand firearms. I simply work my way up to 800/1000 for final sanding.
