Well, got the hole in the buttstock opened up to 5/8", to accept the spring housing on the 1100. Didn't realize how tough that walnut wood was, that they made these stocks out of. It didn't turn out too bad, shouldered the gun, and the beads stacked up in a figure 8, just like I wanted. Stage 3 will be shooting it Wednesday night, if the weather cooperates.

Here are a couple of pics of the finished product:

Definitely not an Anton stock. Anton stocks had a unique grip shape. The shape of the grip cap and rollover Monte Carlo of the subject stock are typical of the Fajen Aristocrat style
of the early 1970's. Reinhart would probably have graded that stick as a "AA" or better grade black walnut and priced the completed stock in the $160. to $200.- range with his optional 20 LPI checkering and hand rubbed finish. One could easily pay more than that today just for a comparable stock blank.
