If you have a 96/44, the you definitely need a stock maker. The 96/44 is very well known to destroy stocks. I got exactly one shot with mine...and the stock was ruined. It simply is a very stupid fit between firearm and stock...and birch wood does not cut it. Ruger also refuses to warranty the 96/44 stock, even if it is on a brand new rifle (as mine was). They expect you to send it back to them and they will give you a discount on another of their new guns. Bill Ruger must be turning over in his grave. If I wanted one of their newer firearms sold by Ruger, I would have purchased one. I seriously doubt that I will ever buy another "new" Ruger ever again.

In answer to your inquiry...nobody but Macon will touch them, and then they will not warranty their stocks either, unless they also fit them...which adds up to a significant expense.
