  • Father's Day comes early. SURPRISE!

    My wife listens to me and my pal talking about squirrel chasing every evening for a week and while we are talking the subject of my pals Boyds stocks keep coming up. Now to be honest my black plastic stock is fine with me. Light, easy to clean off blood, sweat, & bugspray(thought I was gonna say tears didn't ya😉). But my wife was so happy giving it to me I will cherish it forever. Careful what you say out loud around the wife and kids right now boys. It's close enough to Father's Day that they are listening, and shopping. Stay safe. IMG_2336.JPG IMG_2435.JPG

    Forgot: Boyds camo spike camp with laser engraved squirrel

      Cool, I do believe that’s the same tan/green/gray laminate pattern that came on the Kid’s 7mm-08 and now holds my daughter’s stainless actioned .243.

      Fit was good?

      Definitely give us a report on accuracy and your impressions on the feel of the thumbhole stock. Between the weight and ergos it must handle quite different.

        Fit was perfect. No slop at all. Actually was a little tight but it went in without smacking. It's definitely heavier but still overall pretty light. I like the feel a lot, but again, for hot weather hunting the plastic was pretty ideal and I was content. It's a 10/22 not a bolt centerfire so I doubt accuracy changes much. I like the laser squirrel but $21 when for $31 I could have had laser checkering, but it is a gift, it is a 22, so not the time to nitpick. Now I need to find an old beater 10/22 as I have a near new stock & barrel band. Have a newer trigger style lever release and new model charging handle in the drawer as well so basically a free upgrade on hand.

          Very nice! The extra weight is worth it.
