Claro walnut crotch burl shotgun blank 02. Brilliant rays of curly figure radiating throughout representing the magnificent color and character of claro walnut. This “Imperial” grade shotgun blank set, with its stunning combination of crotch plume, curly and burl figure, exemplify museum/exhibition quality. Dry and solid, this butt stock and forearm set was milled in 2001 and coated for preservation. The blank’s integrity and beauty, captured way back when, remains standing over 15 years later. There are a few natural imperfections to mention, seen in the pictures, but the overall quality is still top of the shelf. Compare the figure with others and see for yourself.
