    Butt stock for a T/C contender rifle fit, albeit generously. Minor fiddling yielded a fine rifle.

    Have bought a few full size stocks with good results, however just bought a laminated fore arm and butt stock for BAR. Must have been a second, terrible wood to metal fit, rounded edges, uneven width and height. Sent it back, awaiting for replacement.....

    I think Internet explorer will take you there.

    I put a CMP "C" Boyd's stock on my 1903A3 but, had a local stock maker fit it?
    Works well enough.

    I fit and finished two of their RIA style and one JRS classic on a K31, a 1917 Eddystone, and a Santa Fe 98 Mauser. I bought a finished Sky laminate fwt thumbhhole for my daughter's Stevens .243. In all instances I've been pleased.

    No experience with Richards laminates, but their inletting and shaping needed fixing on the three walnut stocks I got from them. The figure was very nice, however.

    I just helped a buddy fit and bed a "at one adjustable " what a pile of ****....fit fair , finish ok.....Boyds forgot to include the recoil lug,and we had to beg for them to send the hardware.....I made the recoil lug in my shop, a lot of cheap plastic where metal would be better.....and there crappy black & white photo copied "instructions " looks my pre schooler could draw better ...... this one was for a Remington 770...........I got a thumb hole stock for my Ruger American and it went to gather good.....but then again, I scrapped all the plastic and made metal parts for it

    I have mixed feelings about Boyds

    I have two Boyd's stocks. First, a Prairie Hunter for my Ruger M77 tang safety 22-250 which was a drop-in replacement. The other was one of their Featherweight Thumbhole stocks for my Rem. 788 22-250. That one required carefully squaring the internal corners of the magazine well, otherwise it was a great fit and it looks/feels great as well.

    And you opinion of the Boyd stock is? Might not hurt if you'd explain the rifle a little more, some here(like me) aren't as up on these thing as others please?
