    How does it shoot as it is? I love the way it looks now, reminds me of my Brno#4:)

    I have installed Boyd's stocks on quite a few different rifles & shotguns. Both thumbhole & regular stocks. Never had any problems. I even have them on 3 of my own rifles. Not on all, but you might have to do some very minor sanding/fitting on one. A good product. I'm doing another one right now(thumbhole laminate in Forest Camo) on a Ruger Model 77, 7mm mag. I've also used a couple of the Richard's Micro fit stocks which worked out well.

    It shoots good. I just got a wild hair and wanted to change it.

    The Boyd's website has a review pic of my stainless Marlin 60SB in it's blue laminate thumbhole sporter stock.
    Made it a mighty purty rifle! Gets compliments whenever I take it to the range.

    I've only seen 2 of their laminates in person. Having only seen pics of them before (side profile, of course), I was shocked at how thick they are. Are they all that thick, even the walnut ones? I like a thinner rear grip so this kinda turned me off.

    Mine fit tight...too tight, so I had to work on it a little with some sandpaper for about an hour

    I think they make them that way so that you can custom fit it to your gun.

    I think the quality is super high, I love mine and the finish is awesome

    The ones I received for the M1's were all quite a bit thicker than the original military ones. I kind of liked them like that, myself.

    The one I got from Richards was very rough.

    Ditto. I've stocked a couple of Garands with Boyd's walnut. Snug fit and tight trigger group lockup. which suited me just fine.

    The blue laminate thumbhole stock for my Marlin 60SB was pretty thick in the grip and triggerguard area. I had to relieve some material under my trigger finger and around the safety button.
