About Us

Welcome to Hatchers Rifle Stocks, a business that was established after an opportunity arose to service the Australian shooting fraternity with a quality aftermarket rifle stock duplication service. Skills learnt as a Fitter/Armourer in the Australian Army (maintaining a variety of small - medium weapon systems) and subsequent small business ownership provide the foundation, as well as a genuine love for classical walnut rifle stocks! Our main aim is to become the first choice for Australian manufactured semi-finished rifle stocks. To help achieve this, a Dakota Arms rifle stock duplicator, or ‘Pantograph’, has been imported from the USA. This manually operated machine produces a copy of an existing rifle stock (called a pattern) out of a selected rifle blank, and is capable of maintaining extremely close tolerances in the finished product. We source completely air dried, and just as important - stable, high quality stockwood for our projects. This combined with strict procedures for storage and the roughing out/machining process minimise the chances of movement/warping once a stock is completed. Have a look at our extensive range of patterns, grades and hardwoods which will give your rifle and your shooting an affordable enhancement.
