    If it is a custom and you don't mind dropping the cash, Joel Russo on this site makes beautiful stocks.

    I have a BDL 270 that came off the line in 1978. Still shoots lights out. I have been looking at the McMillan Edge or the Manners lightweights to make a true lightweight rifle. It shoots too good that I am afraid to change anything.

    Depends on what you want and howmuch/long you are willing to wait.

    The best wooden rifle stocks....From what I've seen recently, Joel Russo is about the best I've ever seen.

    Thanks for the compliments guys.

    Average price is hard to quote as everyone wants something a bit different and the cost is commensurate with the type of wood you choose. Feel free to send me an e-mail with your contact information if you want to discuss your options. I am currently running a heavy backlog, so build times are hard to estimate.

    If Joel is too busy or you want to consider all your options I would also look at:

    Custom Replacement Gunstocks, Rifle Stocks - Quality, Accuracy, Aluminum Chassis - Accurate Innovations

    as well as the variety sold by:

    Stocky's New Rifle Stocks - America's Gunstock Specialist!

    I think these are classy, and would even switch to a BDL floorplate just to use the stock:

    Good luck in your quest.
