Stock Choice Problem

I'm trying to come up with a decent solution to stock a long range left handed Rem 700 rifle.

I would prefer something along the lines of an AICS or a thumbhole laminate.

I'm stuck.

Any suggestions gratefully received!

(I've not chosen HS Precision because they only do RH thumbholes and nor have I gone for a McMillan because -I know it's heresy- I think that up-close they look a bit rough/home-made)

Bruce Baer (1k gunsmith in PA) makes about 25 different laminate pattern stocks in any color. Can order inletted or pillar bedded.

go to www.geocities.com/cmsad1/BAER

Absolutely great stocks and cheaper than other big names.

Thanks, great looking stocks on that site. I have emailed to ask if they'll do me a lefthander. Fingers crossed!

Might check out the Elkridge stocks, Thats were I got my lefthanded thumbhole laminate.
www.reamerrentals.com/elk_ridge.htm

You need to finish them your self tho, Just depends on what you like. I take a lot of pride in finishing my stock, even if as you say "bit rough/home-made". I don't plan on entering it in a contest! I just hunt and injoy the fact I had a small part of building it! First thing people ask is were I got the stock, then about the action etc.
