Replacement Stock for Sako M995 ???

I have a Sako M995 in 375 H&H with a fiberglass stock. I took it to a local gun shop to have it checked out because I planned on selling it. Anyway, he found a hairline crack on the foregrip just below the swivel stud. My question is, does Sako sell replacement stocks? Or can it be repaired?

I've googled every combination I can think of and can't seem to find one. Any help or advise is appreciated.

Thanks,
Bill

    I have a Sako M995 in 338LM. I have a McMillan A-5 on order for it. I am considering selling the factory stock off of mine when the A-5 arrives. IF you think it would work and IF you are interested, drop me a line.

    Sounds like a great idea if it will work. Does yours have the magazine well?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    I'm in the same position as Fishry (except I already have my A-5 after half a year's wait!). But I'm in South Africa, so I figure you will find it easier buying his and getting it sent to you [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    You need to keep the bits from the mag well - the catch, spring, andd "leaf spring" - as they are needed to fit into the A-5 replacements.

    Don't want to jump ahead of Fishry - so Fishry, IF you decide not to sell it... I'm an alternative source for a stock.

    I should have added - if you aren't sold on a factory repalcement McM makes several tactical styles and a facotry copy and Joel Russo can likley copy your inlet into something (probably almost anything) you like in a laminate (and that extra weight may be nice in that chambering).

    You'll need bottom metal because the factory stock has a trigger guard and mag-well "molded in" - McM won't sell separately, but told me that I could source from Serengeti Stock Works in Kallispel (is it?).

    Good luck.

    I'd rather go with a replacement stock since I plan on selling the rifle. If not I'll probably sell as is. Will the 338 stock fit the 375H&H?

    Thanks for your help,
    Bill

    Are you still interested in selling that stock?
