Sorry Mr Orr...then again..maybe not..misery (and poverty) loves company. Phil, it is a Boyd's stock and hand guard. I like it too...that rifle is going to stay in that stock permanantly it think. Works as a great camo...also very strong and rigid and has the NM thickness.

Redleg,

Thanks!

My wife...who is an artist and helps me with the stocks...says that they make it like being a kid again and dressing up my "G.I.Joe" action figures ... :oops:

M-14 Lover,

Its a type 2. USGI buttplate was fine...some extra stock around the edges but no big deal.In the end I put a rubber butt pad on it because i wanted the extra length of pull prone.

As to the swivel...oryguner helped there (Thanks ORYGUNER! :D ) Do it exactly as he says. It worked perfectly:

Two Hawks, I have had my eye on one of those Boyd Pepper laminates for a while now myself. Your rifle looks great in it but that is not to say that the other stocks aren't sweet either. Did you have to do any extra fitting with the pepper and can you only get Boyd stocks direct. I ask because I can't seem to find a dealer and a better price on one. Thank you, Lionseye

Thanks WarBird!

Lionseye. , The handguard had to be fitted...op rod wouldn't clear! Other than that it was a great fit...tight. I got the stock in a deal from a friend...but the handguard was straight from Boyd's. I have never seen Boyd's stocks sold "inderctly". I know...I looked too.

Thanks Two Hawks for the quick reply. I guess Boyd's can only be bought from Boyd's directly unless with a rifle from a manufacturer like Smith or Fulton or dealers are just few and far between. Did you sand the forend for clearance or have someone do it. The stocks are beautiful and I've have been trying to decide for a while now on a wood to buy and I've made my final choice and the Boyd's Pepper is it even though it's not quite just wood. HAHA.

Thanks target4fun. I actually bought the Scout a few years ago as an alternative to getting a mouse gun!

Lionseye..I did the sanding myself. My stock was very slick as received. I was in process of working Tung Oil into the Walnut stock shown so I added some to the Pepper Lam. stock as well.I think it is coated with something at Boyd's...or the glue finish is just hard because it didn't really take the Tung Oil very deeply. What it did do was to give it a nice vinyl like coating feel . Alot easier to handle...especially given all the weight from the scope,Badger rings,smith mount,loaded stock pack, etc.

Thanks again TwoHawks, Well if it doesn't seem to be to hard to fit and that's only if needed, I guess I'll start looking around for prices. I appreciate it. The epoxy used in the laminate shouldn't be porous though, that's why it didn't take to the tung oil real well. If it does though, I not sure whether it might effect it in a negative way or not. But if it looks good and seems to be allright that no worries. Lionseye

P.S. If you just can't stand to keep it anymore because it's too beautiful and just got to get rid of it, you let me know, OK. HAHA :D
