We are Roger and Ethan Stempski. As a father and son team whose passion
for the shooting sports spans decades, we strive to provide other Firearm
Enthusiasts with proper fitting, high-quality, tailor-made gunstocks.  We
ourselves have been successful at different tournaments and events covering
multiple disciplines and really appreciate the dedication and pride gun
owners display when it comes to their firearm collection.  Our craft has
been handed down to us by Doug Warren, a highly regarded gunsmith and stock
maker from Akron, Ohio.

Our shop is fully equipped with the latest machinery, however, 80% of the
process for building a tailor-made gunstock is still completed by hand.
Over the last 20 plus years we have been producing custom shotgun stocks
and manufacturing handgun grips.  The stocks are made from high grade
exotic woods from all around the world.  One of our most beautiful stock
styles comes from Turkish Walnut out of Europe.

As a father and son team, we have strived to develop many proprietary
methods for creating a very low recoiling shotgun stock starting from the
prototype forward to a completed stock.  Our work produces highly ergonomic
stocks and forend that is tailored to a variety of people and guns.  And
yes, we tailor stocks for the ladies as well!

Our hand-crafted tailor-made stocks are delivered fully sealed, inside and
out with a special two-part, multi-step clear coat in either gloss or
satin.  This is where beauty and function will have the envy of other
shooting enthusiasts at your next event!

In more recent years we have expanded our passion to include the ability
to import and export firearms worldwide.  We are the sole distributor in
Canada of world-renowned Antonio Zoli Company shotguns and rifles.  The
Antonio Zoli company family tradition of building high quality firearms
traces back to 1490.  The traditions of a family business they have managed to
