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.

Re: wanting new stock for Rem 270

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.

Re: wanting new stock for Rem 270

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.
