    I will be making a new stock for my DS mk4 at some point soon, I want to use a coloured laminate, and Lamina seems the best option but I just wanted to ask those that buy from them
    am I better off getting the double sized blanks rather than the single stock size,
    One reason is colour, but I am not sure if you can truly get two stock out of the double, I will be
    making an FT-style so depth is a consideration.

    I'm no expert but the stock maker I've dealt with in the past used to comfortably get two stocks out of a double

    It depends on the rifle and stock your doing. I recently got a double blank and will easily get 2 out of it. I would have thought you would be fine to get 2 as mk4 is not that deep.

    Just be sensible about where you cut the hamster and other ft bits out from. Draw it all out before and think you will be ok.

    The double blank sizes are on the site. If you want to check before ordering stick some a4 together, mark the blank size out then mark the stocks out on it.

    Good point, I'll design something I like and see if I can get two out of the blank, just thought I would be lazy and ask first, its a shame that you cant get a single stock blank in the more colourful laminates

    Why do people want plywood stocks?

    Beauty is in the eye etc etc.
    They bring to mind blobs of different coloured plasticine squished together. But it keeps the wheels of innovation turning I suppose.

    Good analogy, although a nice piece of decent walnut can look great if a good shape, I think I would still prefer coloured laminate, just not too many colours.

    mainly because the weight makes them more stable, they are mostly target rifles

    I do prefer walnut, but if i was offered a 97K .20 in a blue laminate, brand new i could be tempted, to buy a second gun.
