Im thinking about getting a boyd stock for my hunting rifle, i was just wondering what you guys think about putting a nice laminated stock on a hunting rifle. And do you think that its going to get scratched and dinged up really easily. We do a lot of pushing and walking through thick brush. I need to put a new stock on my gun and didnt know if going with a "nice" stock would be a good idea. Or if anyone has any other suggestions then i would be thankful to hear them.
Thanks

Its a good ideal if it is what you want and your not gonna be afraid/pissed if it does get scratched.

 I have a friend who has recently been replacing the cheap factory synthetic and hardwood stocks on his rifles with Boyd laminates.  Off the top of my head I know he's done M700's,Vanguards,and Savages of all configurations.  He's satisfied with them completely.  I like them as well.  Good looking,good fit,and seem to be tough,as well as highly water resistant. Prices are more than reasonable and Boyd's has specials if you keep an eye on their web site. What are you looking to put a new stock on?

   That's a GOOD LOOKING color.  I believe you'd like the Boyd's stock.  Only other option is a GOOD synthetic but they're not cheap..

yeah i think that it would look good with the SS barrel of the model 16. but the only thing is that it has the accutrigger so my lazy @$$ has to do some work on the stock before it fits in... great haha

Even if you do scratch the laminate, it's pretty easy to spot sand and polish the stuff. It's the same stuff as dymondwood, or any of the half dozen other trade names that comapnies had for the same product. "It was used for knife handles a long while before gun stocks" It's pretty easy to work and looks nice. I say go for it. No reason a hunting rifle can't look good.

Here is a 10-22 that was put together from a reciever group found in a house we were cleaning. I bought the stock on line $65 and the Hammered barrel on ebay for $75 Ended with a nice rifle for little cash. The Boyds stock feels good in your hands.

yeah since it has the accutrigger the bolts are an 8th of an inch further apart so you have to make the holes bigger or something idk i didnt really read into it but im positive theres a little work i have to do on it

   Accu-trigger fits fine. The problem comes from being either stagger feed or center feed(old screw spacing verses new-4.27 or 4.40). Still not a big deal takes about a half hours work to fit it in,shim the mag box and drill out front screw hole and put in a pillar.
 If it has a hinged floor plate or a dbm then you need a router or some one with a mill.

 THANKS froggy.  Saved me a phone call.
 
BOYDS' Classic for Savage 10 and 110
Right and Left-Hand Stocks with Right Bolt
 
    
 

The Boyds’ Classic is a compilation of the design elements we have found to be the most elegant and user friendly examples of the classic style. The slender, somewhat open grip is well defined, but does not extend too far below the toe line. The comb is parallel to the bore, which aids in scope use, and because of its straight-line design, minimizes cheek slap under recoil. Additional facial support is provided by a graceful cheekpiece that blends perfectly with the overall shape of the buttstock. The forend is flat/oval in cross-section, and is proportioned to complement barrels of 22-26" in length.

It must be noted that due to the variations among models and tolerances that factories may or may not routinely adhere to, some minor fitting may be required even on our fully finished drop in parts to achieve that perfect fit to your action, although seldom, you must be willing to make these changes if necessary.

Please read through the READ PRIOR TO ORDERING information to confirm the stock you are ordering is the correct one for your firearm.  

 
NOTE: The Savage Models 11, 12 & 16 AND Stevens 200 Short Action have the same action as the Model 10; this Short Action measures 7 1/4" from Center to Center on the action screws or 4.275 from front trigger guard screw to front action screw. The Savage Models 111, 112 & 116 AND Stevens 200 Long Action have the same action as the Model 110; this Long Action measures 8" from Center to Center on the Trigger guard screws or 5.062 from front trigger guard screw to front action screw.
 
For Savage 10 and 110: Action screws used to manufacture Boyds’ stocks are for wood stocked firearms. These screws are longer than the screws used on plastic stocked firearms.  New screws can be ordered directly from Savage.

As far as laminates on a hunting rifle... I have one on my 300wby mag. Love the looks, the feel of the thumbhole, and how it soaks up recoil. The two negatives are that it is heavy!!! and when you get snow on that laminate it gets very slippery. After i finished mine and the first time ever taking it hunting I banged the checkpiece on the ladder of my stand and scratched it pretty good...oh well its a hunting rifle not a safe queen.

  But that weight can be an advantage when trying to rebalance or maintain the balance of a rifle.  I've been thinking about a Boyds for my 98 mauser(military action). It's got a 20" hvy bbl(.75")across the muzzle.  Right now it balances at the front action screw where I LIKE IT.
 
  By the way 03,that's a NICE set-up!  What action is that? Any hassle with the inlet fit?

it is an old Weatherby .300 weatherby mag. built in 1954 on an FN mauser action, it was made in southgate california before the Mark V was produced. I got it a few years ago from an elderly friend of the family. It had been sitting in a box with a busted in half stock since the early 80's. I searched online till my fingers hurt trying to find a stock for it and Isince someone had at somepoint installed a timney trigger in it I was worried about keeping it original. I ordered this stock from rifle-stocks.com (richards micro fit) and after 5 months of waiting and them shipping the wrong stock I finally got it. It took roughly 40 hours i figure to sand and inlet the action! Turned out great.

Yes it does! First deer I took with it was a doe at about 75 yards, shot was right behind the shoulder a touch low and the exit was softball size!
And thanks, she sure turns heads!

  I thought so!  My neighbor has one from the same time period as yours.  Inherited it from his granddad.  I can't tell the bbl length or contour of yours from your pic but his is 24" and would compare to a M70 FWT bbl contour.  He also has some original factory ammo marked $7.50.

Mines a 26" barrel and yes about the m70 featherweight contour. The blueing on this thing is unbelieveable! you can literally see your relection off the barrel. This gun also came with about 15 boxes of the original weatherby ammo and a reloading manual/catalog from the same year. When I finish my "Dad cave" this winter I am going to have a area of some sorts dedicated to this rifle.

  His is also FINE piece of work with OUTSTANDING blueing.
 
  I've got an early 60's era Weatherby catalog.  Makes for GOOD reading with GREAT pics.  Here's a pic  you should enjoy.

I just put a Boyds thumbhole stock on my son's Stevens 308. I have the factory thumbhole on my Savage 12BTV.  The lamy's are  impregnated under pressure with epoxy resin beforeand druring teh lamination build up,  They are tougher than regular wood and much stronger.  You can scratch them but you have to work harder at it than if it was regular wood.  i love mine.  With lamy you get the pretty and the tough in one package.  Added bonus is lamy is more stable than wood too so swelling of the stock isn't an issue in rainy weather.

The stock on this rifle started out as a Boyd's classic, but I whittled it down to make it more slender, added a shadowline to the cheekpiece, recontoured the grip to give it a more English style curve, gave it a light stain for more of a light walnut tint, added an ebony forend tip and steel grip cap, and finished it with Permalyn oil modified polyurethane using the wet sand method.  The result is it's a nice handling and quick pointing rifle that withstands wet weather well.  It's one of my favorite deer rifles for this reason.  It's in 7-08 with a Ruger MKII action, Timney trigger, Shilen barrel, S&K rings, and blue titanium Cerakote finish.  Pics not current as it now wears a Conquest 3-9X instead of they Leupy 1.75-6.
