Quality is top notch. Be warned, Kevin, the owner of Stockade may call and ask a couple questions and chat for a while. Very friendly guy.

I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

+1 for a synthetic stock
I've got two of Kevins P-Dogs Specials. Awesome stocks for the money.
He's a great guy to deal with!

I think I'm going to go with a richards microfit laminate stock. They have some nice looking stocks, lots of experience and will ship to me in canada. Anyone have experience with them?

Re: what is your favorite custom savage stock?

I've got 2 of the Richards that I ordered before I knew anything about Joel's operation. Both of them required a lot more work to get ready to finish than the two that I"ve ordered from Joel. One of them has the barrel channel slightly off center.

That's not to say they're not worth the money, they just take more time and effort to get good final results.

Here's some more reading on the topic.
Anyone use Richard Microfit Stocks?

I've heard that Richard fine tunes them with a chainsaw before they get sent out.

Many of the same negative comments being said over on Savage Shooters.
