    If it is a custom and you don't mind dropping the cash, Joel Russo on this site makes beautiful stocks.

    I have a BDL 270 that came off the line in 1978. Still shoots lights out. I have been looking at the McMillan Edge or the Manners lightweights to make a true lightweight rifle. It shoots too good that I am afraid to change anything.

    Depends on what you want and howmuch/long you are willing to wait.

    The best wooden rifle stocks....From what I've seen recently, Joel Russo is about the best I've ever seen.

    Thanks for the compliments guys.

    Average price is hard to quote as everyone wants something a bit different and the cost is commensurate with the type of wood you choose. Feel free to send me an e-mail with your contact information if you want to discuss your options. I am currently running a heavy backlog, so build times are hard to estimate.
