pistol stock for savage rifle

Anyone know where I can buy a pistol stock for any savage 110, 10, 116, etc I wanna make a pistol out of an older 243 and cut the barrel down but I'm having no luck finding a stock. Thanks!

Re: pistol stock for savage rifle

might wanna check the laws first. It is illegal to make a pistol out of an action that is designated as a rifle action. Pistol meaning a barrel shorter than 16" and/or a total gun length of less than 26".

However, as long as the barrel is atleast 16" AND the total length of the firearm is 26", it is still considered a rifle.

Someone please correct or add to if i am wrong, but i am almost positive this is what it is.

What i thought about doing to mine was to take my Choate ultimate varmint stock and cut the butt end of the stock off just after the pistol grip, then just smooth it out. I have an 18" barrel on a short action Savage and it just makes the 26" limit.

The idea is a good one. The result is illegal.

Guess ill have to check the local laws had no clue it'd be illegal since people use the remington bolt pistols, tc contenders, and savage strikers. Around here during gun season instead of slugguns. I don't see the difference.

Its' ok the way BountyHunter suggested. If the result meets the 16" barrel and 26" overall criteria it's still a legal rifle. The stock design doesn't matter. A pistol grip or a bullpup design with a pistol grip and trigger moved forward is legal.
