Synthetic gun stocks are all the rage these days. However, if you're a true gun lover— you'll know that they're just a passing fad. Nothing beats the look and feel of a heavy wooden gunstock. Just a whiff of the wood is enough to take you back to the shooting range!
Here are a few reasons why gun lovers continue to have an affair with wooden gun stocks.
Since wooden gun stocks are heavier, they provide stability. This allows for a more accurate shot. If the stock is too light, it may be more susceptible to vibration and flexing under recoil, which will harm the accuracy of the shot. Wooden gun stocks are, therefore, the correct weight for shooting, which guarantees more precise and accurate shots. Wooden gun stocks can also absorb impact and internal and external shocks better than synthetic or plastic materials, resulting in better shots.
Resistant to Change
Since wooden gun stocks are usually laminate— which means that they comprise several layers of hardwood pressed together through a mixture of heat, pressure, and resin— they're more resistant to change. Weather and other external conditions won't harm them, which isn't true for gun stocks made of synthetic materials like polymer or plastic. Synthetic materials are more prone to water and moisture damage, but wooden gun stocks are impregnable to water or moisture.
Not only do wood gun stocks provide for better shots because they can absorb impact, but they're also able to maintain their rigidity. This rigidity is perfect for being able to maintain bedding. Bedding means being able to provide a rigid aluminum foundation for the gunstock by creating a stable bearing surface between the stocks and the functional parts of the gun. This helps avoid recoil and allows for more definite shots, which is every shooter's dream. These stocks also work well with humidity and are perfect if you want to go shooting or stalking in a tropical climate—or even abroad!
Wooden gun stocks give added value to your gun. They look graceful, elegant, and just the smell is enough to take you back to the range. A timeless elk or walnut stock could even become a precious family heirloom one day!
