Thought I would give you something to laugh at. When I bought my Browning A-bolt eons ago it seems, it was the Medallion model with a very nice highly polished stock. My first time using it, I realized that was mistake because of the glare that my friends commented on they could see for a mile away, LOL. So, in a quick "Yankee ingenuity" moment, I took a pair of faded black socks, slipped one over the stock and tie-wrapped in place, took another and poked a hole in the toe and slipped over the barrel and down over the fore-grip, also tie-wrapping in place. The socks fit pretty snug, cured the problem, and I still use them, LOL. It's sort of a conversation item now, and I sometimes get the weirdest looks if running into somebody out there... ;-)
You know, I wrote to Browning twice though, to see if a stock from a Stainless Stalker (black composite) would fit my older A-bolt, but they never wrote me back.... the bums!
By the way, I still own every gun I've ever bought since I was a kid and got my first .22, and don't plan on selling any either. So you are not alone in that... my kids will inherit them all, ha!
