Has anyone used one of these stocks? If so how do you feel the fit and finish were? TIA

I put that stock on this 22-250 of mine, shoots good with some bedding work.

Follow finishing instructions to the T for a nice finish.

I've used a couple and, in the immortal words of another member, they were just a crap!
Inletting was much too generous leaving visible gaps. Rough sanding was overenthusiastic giving a wavy surface with dips and valleys. On top of that, delivery time was too long (Months, not weeks). In the end they were fixable but not easily. Regards, Bill.

I have found them to be pretty good most of the time. I have never had delivery take but the regular 3-5 days but then again mine have always been in stock when I ordered them. Take it for what it is worth to you, but most of the ones I have bought unfinished from any maker will need a good bit of prep time to get them like I want them.


Just as every mass produced receiver and barrel have differences in them, stocks will be the same way.

There is cognitive learning and there is salient learning.

My anecdotal experiences with Boyds were so bad that I don't care what the objective facts are about Boyds in general. I am done with them.
