    I'm looking for someone who does checking and does it very well. I'm looking at having a Ruger 10/22 with the Full Length Stock(a Laminated one) done. I would be willing to ship it a reasonable distance from the South King County Area. Mike

    Well, the counter says 32 people have looked at my Post and I surprised that none of them managed to come up with a name for me. Mike

    Be patient and continue your research in other places as well. Not everyone here knows everything you know....

    Google Sherry Abraham. She is in Oregon, and she was the head checkerer for Kimber of Oregon.

    Best,
    Gary

    Thanks for the info. I think I have heard of her before but couldn't find a correct spelling of her name. Mike

    Someone closer that does great stock work, especially checkering, is

    Cloward's Gun Shop (425) 334-3006

    He's located in Lake Stevens which might be a lot closer to you. He's "semi-retired" and his work is known world-wide so he may be busy. Give him a call. IF he does do the work for you it too will be "world class".

    Last I saw him was about a year ago. Still working but also still cranky:cool: Has a nice shop behind his house on the East side of Lake Stevens. Has about a 50' commute to work.

    He also has a Very nice Range within about five(5) miles of him. That's where we met. I lived on the S end of the Lake for ten(10) years but then his "Shop" was in Seattle. Now I. Live near the S end of Lake Meridian! Mike
