“Should I checker my stock? If so, what checkering tools should I buy?”
I get this question a lot around here and thus, thought I would share my opinion on the matter. When I see a stock that does not have checkering on it looks a little incomplete. I understand the reasoning behind why a factory would choose not to checker their gun. It takes time, and time is money, and they can send a gun out quicker and cheaper if they skip a step. But on a wood stock that is exactly what it looks like to me. Like a step has been skipped and the stock is left unfinished.
So, in my opinion, checker the stock. We offer a great set of checkering tools for the beginner with our Starter Set. Checkering not only adds an aesthetic element to the gunstock but it also adds a practical feature. Giving you more purchase, which better bonds your hands to the gun, when you grab it to make that important shot on that buck of a lifetime.
