Default Dickinson Plantation rework

Here is a rework on the wood that I just completed on a Dickinson 20g.

The factory stock styling was pretty bad. Fortunately there was the wood to work with to make it nicer to look at. And thr addition of fancy checkering helps too.

Very nice Brian, just the refinish alone makes a huge difference, nice wood. How much weight did it take off the gun reshaping the stock?

Not much. I actually added weight to the butt to help with targets.

They do stick some nice wood in those from time to time. Great job in making it look much much better.

Yes. I wanted a 20g O/U for a target gun and I figured this one was worth a try. It shoots well for me.
