I acquired another Mauser type action, this one is a VZ 24 Brno action.  It will become a .243, about the same as the set up I have at my smiths shop right now.

The current project has a Boyds JRS laminate, nutmeg colored stock.  I am considering another  JRS made of walnut for this one.  But I am also considering a light synthetic stock, don't need much weight for a .243

I read a few reviews over the Fajan stock, they seem dismal at best.  And Carbelites from Bell & Carlson are twice the price as a JRS.  I am finding a few Ram Line online advertisements for around $100.  Before they were more costly, but I do not think Ram Lines are being produced any more.

Is there a such thing as good low priced synthetic?

The RamLine that came with my model 70 when i bought it used is a piece of junk, but I don't know if the carbalite will be any better without a full length block.  Don't know much about stocks other than mine is crap.  Hope it helps.

A cheap synthetic stock on the same level as a Stevens 200 stock...but they get a point because they do stocks that no one else does.

     I have one on a marlin 336 and it is a P O S. I have been looking for a laminate for it since I installed this on my rifle.
 Going to try Numrich and see if I can find an original.

Boyds JRS looks to be my best bet then.  Believe me, this does not make me sad.

I bought one to save the wear and tear on one of my wood stocks, will never buy another.
Groups opened up and the front swivel stud pulled out while I was hunting.  Was trying to protect my wood stock and ended up with my rifle hitting the ground when the stud pulled out  Head Banger
