Custom Woodwork for Thompson/Center break actions

Fred started Bullberry by hand-making custom woodwork for the T/C Contender back in 1980; even before Thompson/Center made carbine barrels for the action. While it seems like not much as changed in what we produce, we have both expanded what we make our custom grips, forearms and buttstocks for in addition to always evolving our style. Our current stocks, grips and forearms feature more streamlined shapes (particularly in the grip section) than our early work. And of course, when ordering any custom woodwork from Bullberry you can expect to receive something that has been painstakingly hand-shaped to your specifications.

Right- or left-handed stocks are custom designed with cast-off stock bodies and offset palm swell pistol grip.

Finish level and type are determined by you.

Fit on both pistol grip palm swell and buttstock length of pull are built to match each shooter, not made in generic Small, Medium, Large or Short, Average, Tall.

If you shoot exclusively with iron sights please specify this when ordering a shoulder stock. This information with lead our woodsmith to shorten the comb from our standard scoped-shooter positioning/height.

General fit particulars do NOT alter the cost of your grip- or stock-set.

The standard buttpad for adult-length stocks is always the Pachmayr® Old English trap pad. This leather-look pad is much cleaner and softer than traditional production rifles feature. Upgrades to softer pads are available as well.

Your choices of wood are virtually unlimited. We carry English, Bastogne, and Black Walnut, as well as accenting woods in Oak, Sycamore, Ebony and Coco Bollo Rosewood.

All wood blanks are fully cured to a minimum moisture content and most are available in grades from utility to exhibition.

Have a wood blank of your own you'd like made into a custom stockset?

We work on most varieties of wood customers have access to (except Myrtle!). If you have a specific project in mind please call to determine what size blank(s) should be supplied for the item(s) you're interested in.

Customer-supplied wood is always priced as Utility grade, in the corresponding finish level you are interested in. The availability of special shapes/sizes and cheekpieces may be subject to the dimensions of the blank(s).

Customer-supplied blanks may require a delay in production due to their moisture content when received. We test all supplied blanks prior to cutting/shaping to finished dimensions. Our typically dry high-desert climate allows for low moisture content without the use of kilns, so time may be required to reduce the moisture in your blank(s) to an appropriate percentage.
