<P>That's about the only choice you have is a gamo Hunter stock.</P>
<P>The 440 stock is much nicer that the 220 stock, the 890 stock is the same as the 440 stock.</P>

I'ts too bad NO one makes custom stocks for Gamo. I think JM makes a 1250 one.

I'd like to find a target-style stock for my S1k. I'm not a big fan of sporter stocks, I don't find them ergonomically correct at all.

you desire. I've seen some of the aforementioned "woodwork" you are referring to as to rifle stocks. Being a retired woodworker of 35 yrs, and specialising in custom cabinet and furniture design/fabrication and fine European high gloss finishes, I have developed some opinions on my own. And I Believe the word you are looking for is NOT Carpenters (they build homes, a noble task indeed). You are in fact in Need of an Artist who works in wood sculptures, and has a working Knowledge of wood species strengths and weaknesses as to grain orientation, porosity, density, etc. unless of course you want your gun stock to crack after several hundred times cocking effort.

The problem I'm seeing is that most Artist that make stocks will not put there product on a Gamo like a S1K. I have called around to try and get one made and the answer is NO, Nah, Can't help you. One of the problems that they are afraid of is that the gun will not shoot that accurate with there stock and that may hurt the good reputation that they have. I think Matt is right, if we all start calling 1 or 2 of the custom stock makers they might see that there is a market.

I do consider myself an "artist" and I make fine furnisings and accesories(tables,jewlry boxes etc.) primarily out of wood. I am in the process of making a stock for my hunter 220. This is the only part of the gun I do not like, besides the trigger. I will post pics when I am done. If there is any interest I will make jigs and fixturs to machine out the action for any gun. I used chisles and scrapers to produce mine (faster when doing a production of 1). I was thinking the opposite, I didn't think many would want a custom stock for a gamo(besides me).

If you can make a stock like this for the Gamo S1K,220,440's I really think it will sell. One of the problems with the Gamo stocks is, it's too light for the recoil of the gun. If you get the total wt. of the gun up to 8 and 9lbs they really start to shoot good. I maybe wrong but that same stock will work with 5 Gamo guns. I'm just trying to count in my head just how many Shadow 1000's owners that have allways wanted a wood stock? You may need to have a lottery for orders just to keep from killing your self. I for one do NOT want a wood stock that looks like a stock Gamo.
