Who makes the better laminated stocks. ( Stockeys or Boyds )
A need to know question,has any one delt with Stockeys or Boyds laminated thumb hole rifle stocks or any of there stocks. Are they good quality or junk or should i spend more money and buy from some one else. Thanks.
I don't own either of them yet but I have looked at both in the thumbhole you mentioned. Boyd's is cheaper but in my opinion the Stockey's look like a better stock. If not better at least they seem to have more features. The decelerator pad is a good one and if I do ever actually order one it will be the Bobby Hart with the aluminum bedding block. About 250 but they look great and should be worth it. I paid the same price for a Bell&Carlson thumbhole and it's completely useless if you ever use a bipod as the fore end is so flexible it hits the barrell with just the weight of the gun.
First of all, if you haven't gone winter backpacking, it needs to happen in the near future. It puts a very unique twist on the summer version of the activity. Yes, it's cold but it's nothing that being prepared can't remedy. Beyond it's therapeutic and recreational value, I think it is a very good tool for the big game hunter as well. I don't think that you can spend too much time getting to know the ins and outs of the area that you hunt. And there is no better way to gain experience in...
