Re: Laminated gun stocks

If you want a high end custom stock, then Joel Russo is the way to go. No doubt on that.

However, for under $300 the Stocky's stocks are great. I have the LR Bobby Hart model on a 6.5x47 that cannot be beat for the price. Laminated, clear coated with recoil pad and 3 sling studs. Mine has 1-2 very minor specks in the clear and that is it.

I will say do not order it pillared. Go ahead and have your smith pillar it. My pillars were loose and would not do that aqain.

Thanks again.
Even though a stock has an aluminum bedding block/Chassis it does not fit your action perfectly
(100 %) because it is machined to a standard and most actions if not all are not perfect.

These inserts are advertised as a no bedding needed system. Some times they will shoot well but
99% of the time bedding will improve the fit and accuracy.

The plus to them most have pillars built in and all that is nessary is bedding.

If a stock doesn't have pillars I install aluminum or stainless pillars and then do a full action bed
and float the barrel.

The type of bedding to use is up to the individual but I like the bedding with metal in it (Like
Steel Bed).because of its durability and ease of applying.

The main reason for bedding is for consistency shot to shot.

Re: Laminated gun stocks

I have had experiance with both, the boyds stock from Cabelas on a Ruger MK11 30.06. Great fit and look, however I had to free float the barrel as the wood pused heavily on the right side. I ordered a LH thumbhole from Stocky Stocks for a Remington 7600 270, in bone grey. The fit finish and color are outstanding. Delivery was fast.I have pics if your intrested

Re: Laminated gun stocks

I have 2 Bobby Hart LRT stocks that I got from Stockys. One for my Rem 700 338 Ultra mag to hunt with so I don't mess up my Joel Russo stock and one for my Rem 700 SPS Tactical in 308. I could only find one tiny flaw in one of the stocks, other than that finish and fit was perfect. I did end up Devcon bedding both of them, probably didn't have to, but that is just me.
I wouldn't get the aluminum bedding block ones just like JE said. Bed them yourself.
I highly recommend these stocks.
