    I have an FN small ring mauser barreled action (cocks on closing) that I need a stock for.

    Action screws measure 7 1/16" center to center and the magazine is a single stack set up.

    Its chambered for the .300 savage.

    Does anyone have any leads on where i might find a stock for it?

    The first place I would look is Stocky's, then on the Boyd's, then to Bell and Carlson, and then to Calico Hardwoods. Put rifle stocks into your internet search engine, and several more than these mentioned will come up also. Brownells and Midway are a couple of other places you could look also.

    those who beat their guns into plowshares, will plow for those who didn't

    Boyds doesnt list anything with the spacing i need for the action screws. This is a commercial mauser action and is a 1/4 inch shorter than the shortest small ring stock Boyds offers.

    Im half ass tempted to just order a small ring and do a little wood work to get it to fit. But im afraid it wont be something i can easily cover

    I don't know if Boyds and the others offer custom stocks or not, but at one time stock makers did. It might be worth a call or e-mail to see if they would sell you a small ring stock partly inletted for the barrel and action but not inletted for the bottom metal or the recoil lug.

    Im afraid thats what im up against Jim. Problem i have is the customer doesnt want to spend a bunch of money on this one. So I aint touching it if I aint got to. Ill dig around a little more but I may have to call him and see if he wants to take on the cost of having a stock custom fit to it.

    Boyds does make a small ring stock but the inletting on them is excessive. I bought on and had to bed the whole action just to make it look decent.

    Usual reference to a small ring refers to a SR Mdl.98 Mauser. The Mdl. 98 Mausers all cock on openning regardless of ring demension. The Mauser Mdls. 95,96 etc. cock on closing but also require a much smaller stock bed.
