Wood related questions

Laminated wood looks nice, is stiff and recoil friendly. Therefore laminated stocks shoot comfortably. We designed our stocks with the laminate structure in mind. This means we use angled planes in our stock designs so that multipe layers of wood are cut in an area which results in the nice looking patterns.
The laminated plywood is made of high grade Finnish birchwood. These woods are specially grown and therefore nature friendely.
That depends much on the finish which has been used. When the stock has been laquered there is less risk unless the lacquer is broken somewhere or there are spots where there is no lacquer at all. For an oil finished stock the same counts. It depends how well the stock has been finished. Therefore as a general rule of thumb it is best to dry the stock (and) the rifle after shooting in the rain.
If the stock has been oil-finished the stock will become dry at some spots and feel more rough. In this case normally it's best to clean the stock and use a little maintenance (hardwax) oil to work on the dry sports. If you want to sand the stock use a high P grid paper to minimize the risk of seeing a difference afterwards. If you doubt please contact us. Because we don't use varnish or laquer on our stocks currently we can't give you advise on this one.
Yes this is perfectly normal. The birch wood has been painted and because wood is natural product it can happen that the paint does not stick to every piece of the wood. It's hardly possibly to find a stock where there are no such spots.
Curently we have no plans for that. There are already too many aluminium chassis types of stock out to make a difference. We are thinking for the future about combining wood and aluminium, but not on the short term.

Finish related questions

Yes you can. In our price list you see lesser price options for this. It's possible to get the stock straight from the machine or have it (pre)sanded. Actually it is a nice job to finish a stock. It is not complex but only time consuming.
If you want to sand the stock yourself, it's best to start with P100 grid to get the more rough parts done. Don't forget that laminate wood is quite hard material because of the glued layers. Then work your way up with P120 and P150. There you can start with a first layer of oil if you want to finish your stock with oil. After drying look at the spots that come out not well sanded and correct this. Then sand it up to P180 and you should be ready for your final layer of oil. In general when you go higher in grid the stock will become lighter and get a sheen. This is because the surface is becoming smoother and starts to reflect light instead of absorbing it. If you need this or want this is up to you and the way you are going to finish the stock.
Basically there are three types of finishes for a laminate stock. The most common is a oil-based, next to that is a varnish and a lacquer. All have their pro's and con's. Oil makes the colors more dark and protects the wood from inside out. A lacquer puts layers on top of the wood and protects the wood from outside in. If an oil finished stock gets scratches normally this can easily be repaired. With a lacquered stock this is a bit more work. Next to that with the most oils you can have it at most a light sheen while a lacquered stock can be made very transparent and shiny.
Here we refer to sanding sealers. When using oil, the preference is not to use cellulose based sanding sealers because the oil can't penetrate enough in the wood after sealing with cellulose. A cellulose sanding sealer is a good option for a finish that put layers on the stock and does not want to penetrate the wood, like laquer. Best is to discuss this with your painter if you are going to outsource this job.

Export related questions

Yes in principle we ship around the world except when there are import restrictions.
We ship all our products with FedEX.
Outside Europe we export without VAT when shipped to end users. When imported the receiver has to pay the applicable VAT. Our pricelist are inclusive 21% Dutch VAT. If you calculate (100/121)*price you get the price without VAT. Inside Europe we ship with 21% Dutch VAT.
Our prices are exclusive packaging and shipping costs. If we know the shipping adress we can estimate the shipping cost. The real shipping cost will be given on moment of shipping. This because shipping costs can change during time.

Supported actions and inlets

Yes we will. We will add more custom actions like BAT and more magazine based actions like Tikka and Howa.
We have a internal planning when we are going to support what actions. If your action is not on the planning, it depends on the popularity of your action if we are going to support it. The costs involved in developing a inlet are that high that it is economically not interesting to do this as a one time job. In that case you are better of by taking our blank and let a competent rifle builder do the inletting job. If you want to know if we are going to support your action, please contact us.
Basically we need the physical action for a few weeks. We process the action with our 3D concept and design multiple inlets for it. This can be a drop-in-fit, bedding blox and epoxy bedding inlet.
From the moment we take the action of our planning list and start working on it, it will take about 6 to 8 week lead time. We have to make test inlets guarantee a 100% fit.
At this moment you see that we have actions for which we only have a epoxy bedding inlet or just a inlet for a aluminium bedding block. The strategy is that small bore actions we will make all three type of inlets (drop-in-fit, aluminium bedding block and expoxy bedding) if this is technically possible. For large bore actions we will make only two types of inlets (aluminium bedding block and epoxy bedding). So keep an eye on the site because we will update the type of inlets for each action.

New rifle stock models

Yes, currently we are working on a Sporter model. The Sporter model is for magazine based actions. It will be made available for the Anschütz 64, Remington 700SA, Kelbly Atlas Tactical and the Tikka T3. Also a hunter model is planned and Multisport. The Multisport is derived from the F-Open model but shorter and slimmer. With the Multisport you will be able to shoot from bipod and frontrest with support of sandbag or straight from the hand and shoulder.
First the Anschütz 64 and the Remington 700SA. The other actions will follow.
We expect the Sporter model for the Anschütz 64 and the Remington 700SA available end of april 2019. Before summer 2019 we expect the Kelbly Atlas Tactical and the Tikka T3. The models Hunter and Multisport are planned in the 3th quarter of 2019.
