Fantastic work. :clapping:

:thumbsup: великолепен :tiphat:

In the USA, I have found that those who collect high end modern guns do not care much for stock carving with the exception of those who collect pre-WWII German guns. I think the reason for that is because most of the stock carving we see over here is done by hobbyists carving with a rotary grinder. If these collectors could see your work it might change their attitude about carved stocks.

Cheers,
Roger

Thanks to all for the comments.
I will not hide that's nice to read all this.

In reality I had very little time to carve this stock . It would be good if I had a more time for design and trimming details.

Thanks again
