dc.description.abstract <p>Few people know that an Iowa company is the largest producer of rough gun stocks in the world. The Des Moines Saw Mill Company, located at the capitol city of the State, produces annually about 1,200,000 walnut gun stocks. This number has been sold by the company during the past year. It has been variously estimated that this number equals from 50 to 75 per cent of the total yearly supply of walnut stocks in the United States. With the exception of a few manufacturers of fire arms, the Des Moines Saw Mill Company supplies all of the leading gun companies of the United States using walnut stocks. Although a large part of the blank gun stocks are further manufactured in this country, some stocks are marketed in Europe.</p>
