I am in need of a semi inletted FW 12 gauge stock that is a low budget build. All my other restocks have been with upgraded wood but just going to go plain and factory like with this field grade. Wondering who others use on low priced decent quality stocks. God bless, Zachary

I have used Macon with good results. Make sure they understand what you want. Winig has become to high.

How close was Macon's stock? Did it require a lot of inletting? I priced Wenig on another I did and thought it was pretty expensive. Thanks Zachary Hopkins
I have had good luck with 1 LCS and 3 WW21 and a Parker. Each time I provided the wood. I hear a lot of complaints about them but the have done a good job for me. Make sure they understand your requirements. They did a FW 20 for me and it was good but much to my pleasure drop was 1.5 x 2, just righ for me

I ended up getting a semi inlet from show me gunstocks from Missouri and am absolutely impressed. I ended up ordering a semi fancy grade straight grip and cannot believe the stock I got. Absolutely beautiful and don't want to use it on this build as it's way too nice!! I highly recommended Donny at show me as he was way more reasonable than others and the semi inlet work is very close. Wish I could post a picture but since photobucket changed I cant.
Zachary, I have a Fajen semi-inlet for a fw Smith, bought years ago and never used it, has a forend also. Email if interested.

I have use Show-Me Gunstocks - Donny - for several high grade L.C.'s and will continue using them. Excellent inletting and great wood for the proce. Wenig has just gone over the hill - way too expensive.
