GRADING OF BLANKS
The following is a brief outline of Tiger-Hunts grading method for curly maple rifle stock quality wood. Grading curly maple is highly subjective but necessary, and although different users may prefer different characteristics in their wood, there is enough of a concurrence on what is desirable to lend itself to the following grading system.
Exhibition Fancy grade, strong figure.
5 The figure has a constant pattern throughout the piece.
4The figure is constant in its pattern throughout the piece, and may be preferred by those who like a slightly wider curl.
3 Curl will be evident throughout piece, but may not hold constant pattern.
2Piece will have figure but may not hold constant pattern. There will usually be slight areas of openness devoid of curl.
B Lightly figured. Usually an interesting piece.
Grade 2 to 4 are very appropriate for pre-revolutionary war long rifles.

Occasionally available are pieces which defy grading and are without question superior, to Exhibition grade. Prices on these "Presentation" pieces begin at approximately 50% above Exhibition grade prices. Drop us a line if you are interested in such a piece. Be advised however, that it may not be readily available.

*Paintable grade pieces are unintentional and are caused by an unexpected defect in the wood - such as a small open knot, ingrown bark, or a minor crack. I don't try to make this grade, so they are available only when they "occur".
