Remington, Ruger and Ultra Walnut Gunstocks and Rifle Stocks
What is Ultra Walnut?
Ultra Walnut is a real wood product made with Coastal Gunstock and Sports Supply's proprietary, patent pending, Carbon Fiber Laminate (CFL) Technology. Ultra Walnut is NOT a wrap, overlay, or laser-effect process that simulates wood grain.
For shotgun stocks, two pieces of walnut are sandwiched around a layer of carbon fiber. The carbon fiber shows up as a small black line visible on the top and.. bottom of the stock and lends stability and strength to the stock.
For rifle stocks, we use three layers of wood and two layers of carbon fiber. Again, two layers of walnut are sandwiched around a layer of carbon fiber, a third layer of walnut (or other fine wood, such as mahogany or rosewood) and another layer of carbon fiber.
These stocks provide the stability associated with laminate stocks and the great look and feel of traditional walnut.
What grades of walnut does Coastal Gunstock use?
Ultra Walnut uses three grades of North American Walnut. These are Standard (A) Grade, Fancy (B and C) Grade, and Extra-Fancy (D and above) Grade. Fancy Grade is considered to be a minimum of 30% figure on both side panels, while Extra Fancy Grade is considered to be a minimum of 75% figure on both side panels (a side panel is defined as the area behind the grip of the stock). Figure can be feather, burl, fiddleback, and cathedral-type grain with good color.
Do stocks from Coastal Gunstock require professional fitting?
All of the stocks sold on CoastalGunstocksportsSupply.com are fully finished and meant to be drop-in, ready-to-assemble stocks. Our stocks are NOT semi-inletted or partially finished. Coastal Gunstock staff assemble each and every stock and fore end to a gun of the appropriate model before it is shipped to ensure proper fit. However, because of variations in factory metal among like firearms there is no guarantee that the stock or fore end will fit each barreled action in the same manner it fits our House actions.
