Re: Sako M995 Stock Build W/Bottom Metal
There really is no supplier, and no real supply. By that I mean, the bottom metal was re-produced by a company many years ago, then stopped production. There were a few pieces floating around. Through the years, I have made some really good business contacts. One of those contacts bought the last few pieces, and also makes stocks. He graciously offered one piece to me for this stock build.
The M995 stocks are prone to cracking near the tang, and most owners look for replacement stocks after this happens. Unfortunately, the original stocks had a "molded in" bottom metal that prohibited making a replacement stock unless you could source the replacement bottom metal.
