Re: Buddy broke a stock

The BBR is a pain in the butt to find stocks for but I found a place that will do them for their normal price plus a $25 set up fee. I was going to buy a stock from them for my Ruger 77/17 and my old BBR (ended up selling it) before I got married but never got around to it. I honestly have no experience with the company so I couldn't say anything about their quality or service but it's a start.

Actions Available

The only other place I ever found that would do the BBR inlet was McMillan

McMillan Hunting Stocks, McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, Synthetic Stocks, Hunting & Sport Stocks

Good luck!

Re: Buddy broke a stock

Try giving Browning a call. I found that their service is excellent. I have never used their rifles, but had an old Belgium made o/u shotgun that had a cracked wrist. They replaced both the butt and forearm with wood that would melt your heart, and spruced up the action and metalwork at no charge. It turned out that back in the 60's a lot of walnut had a defect due to high salt content. This eventually could cause the wood to split. This was 40+ years later, and I was not the original owner.....that is good service!
