Looks great! Benelli has good wood in there O/U. Is the wood an upgrade?

Nice wood except the layout IMO is god awful. probably would never matter in a clays type gun unless you drop it or fall on it. Too me its suspect enough that if you had it in a case and dropped the case it might crack.

Like I said not worried, if it were a real issue the internet would be full of broken stock pics from Beretta/Benelli and lower quality O/U’s. Maybe on a hundred year old gun with thin arms but this thing not worried at all.

The fish scales tend to hide the real grain pattern but I think I see reasonable grain on a best quality american walnut stock. Should be good on anything but a duck gun, trap loads should be no problem.

Grades are what the seller wants them to be . There are no set standards . My grade 1 may be your idea of a grade 2 . All you can go on in mass produced guns is the makers standard for each model .


Some wood that looks very pretty and is suitable for machining for O/U's ,where a reinforcing tube can be fitted to over come short grain in the hand , will not be suitable for hand work on side by side's . So is it a grade one or not even though it has spectacular grain pattern ?
