    Does anyone have any suggestions for a MK V TRR sa replavement stock?
    Not looking for a Bell and Carlson or Boyd’s. I’d prefer a McMillan, but the wait is a deterrent.
    Any opinions?

    Just as a curiosity, is there a particular reason you do not want a B&C?

    Just prefer a Mcmillan or Manners stock style. The BC feel a little more on the cheap side and I’ve had some qc issues with them in the past. Color options are another reason

    I got a McMillan Lazzeroni thumbhole stock for my Mark V from their online inventory a couple years ago. It would be worth a check to see what they have ready to ship.

    Personally I'd look at any of the good laminates as a first choice but I have quote a few H-S and B&C's that are good for the money.

    I have had quite a few of the H-S stocks flake off chunks near corners and contact points which doesn't help their looks over time but if I worry about them at all I just fill them with epoxy, sand it and paint them again.

    That pretty well never happens and laminates tend to hold their looks much better over time.
