Brownells sells/makes tons of checkering tools. Since it is already in place it should be easy to follow.

Good luck.

Tried std checkering tools on a junk stock. Didn't work out well. Doesn't seem to be any viable fix except maybe a pro shop. Don't want to throw money at a field gun. Ah, well. Not every problem has a solution. Thx for looking.

I know a couple of Rifles my Dad had built had custom checkering tools made by the stock-maker who checkered and engraved them. He did some very small checkering he could not buy back in the 60's.

Good luck. You might be able to find a replacement stock.

What make and model are you looking for.

I had a Savage 330 O/U in 20ga years ago with pressed checkering. Decided it would look better cut so got a tool and cut it myself. As I recall it was simple. Pattern was already there!
