    So I been looking at a Houge gun stock for a Savage Stevens build with the full length beading block. Anyone have any experience with them or comments pro/cons...? Thanks for any info.

    It looks like the one that I would use is the 11117 which is for a long action savage 110.... Savage 110, 112 & 116 Top Loading Box Mag Long Action Heavy Barrel Full Bed Block Stock.

    I'm changing out the barrel to a heavy varmit barrel and then would be installing a better trigger to start off with. Gun will be a 7mm REM.

    I consider them just okay. I had one on a commmercial FN Mauser action with a Shilen barrel chambered in 264Win. The stock didn't cause any accuracy issues but it was heavy and tacky feeling to the touch. I don't like heavy rifles for hunting and the added weight made the rifle heavier than I care for. You could do worse as far as stocks are concerned but IMO you can do quite a bit better.

    Pro : nice tacky feel does not slip in your hands.
    Cons: too flexable, barrel touches stock when I preload my bipod. I even bedded the action in the stock so I would have 3/16 clearance in the forearm. I would stay away. Worth about $60 in the 700 style. I have considered replacing mine with everything from a plain Jane wooden stock to HS precision.
