    Folks, I just picked up a Savage Model 840 in 222. The riffle is in very good good condition, The stock is ok. I would like to get a thumb-hole sport laminate stock for this gun. I have been checking the web and no-one has the CNC specs or does a drop in for this gun. I shoot the 223 platform, I like the small caliber. I hunt with the 243 rem, Very accurate.

    Do you guys/gals know of anyone who can get me a stock? I can buy the blank, However, that's a ton of fitting. One mistake and the stock is ka-putt...

    The .222 caliber with that stock would be a cool nice to have. Probably not many out there.
    Thanks in advance,
    -T

    I hear that. Years ago my Dad fitted a 8mm German Mauser. I remember the bishop stock and he used in-lays as well. If I could get the stock started and fitted or even marked up, I can and will do the work.

    Its allot of work and very detail work. The end result is amazing. I like the laminates. I am hoping someone has done this and will reply back.

    Found a place in Cal called Richards. They can do a model 340 for me. The 340 and 840 are supposed to be close.

    thanks
