So far I've picked up one of the Ross Thumbholes...worked Perfectly on my Wifey's Marlin 60 :)
Had to have the Pink Stain made special...and there is a trick to getting Home Depot to make it...
and it wasn't as good as I wanted it, as it was crappy Minwax brand...but it did ok for the job.


Also, do NOT use Tru-Oil for colors. Great for Browns, but for anything else, it has a Yellow Haze that's discernable.
I'm not gonna redo it...because the wife can't see the hazey yellowing, but I sure can.

Anyway, the stock works GREAT & Wifey is very happy with it :)

Fit easily, just had to remove a little material so the LSHO lever would work properly.
Along the side where the lever goes, its good to sand off any rough spots inside so there's no grabby burrs.
And you usually have to make a hole for the LSHO, unless they've started doing that since this stock was made...
it was from the 2nd run of stocks for the Marlin semi-autos...they may have made it easier since then.

To fit one to a 795, you simply open the mag-well area with a coping saw and save a small piece to fill the mag tube channel at the end.
Along with making a little room for the LSHO lever...just like on a 60.

Many folks like to bed the action, which helps lock the action in for that perfect fit.
But it is up to the individual.

well everyone, i recently purchased a Boyd's laminated stock for my Savage M93r17 bolt action 17HMR rifle. the one i bought is the nutmeg rimfire target hunter model. well, i am very impressed with it, as it looks awesome. it did take a little fitting and adjustments to make it fit, but this was to be expected. i am very happy with the quality and price of the stock. also after the stock had arrived, they sent me an email to inquire if i was pleased with my purchase. i was so impressed with it, that i have ordered two more from them, one for my Marlin XS7 in 7mm-08 and one for a Remington M700 in 204 Ruger i have. if you need an aftermarket stock, please check out Boyd's Gunstocks, you'll be glad you did!

Do you have any pics you can post?
how these! first one is the stock, the second is the stock mounted, still waiting on the triggerguard, third is, before the makeover. i tried this stock on bigshreck's recommendation and am glad i did, thanks, bigshreck! these stocks are fantastic addition to a rifle and worth the money. stock cost $92 + shipping came out to a total of $109. very much IMO, worth the money for such a quality item.

well i received my grey laminate stock yesterday for the Marlin XS7 in 7mm-08. this is the second one i have used by Boyd's, and these stocks are awesome. i am very impressed with the quality of them. this one needed next to no trimming or fitting, but i will be glass bedding it in the future. if you need replacement stocks, check out Boyd's Gunstocks. prices are decent and shipping is fast.

i will post some pictures later of it installed.

Boyd's grey Laminate stock

these Boyd's stocks are just awesome! the quality is great, the shipping is fast and i am very impressed with their prices. if you have a rifle you want to restock just to change the looks, or need a replacement for a worn or cracked one, these are some you need to check out. i have ordered two them so far and am fixing to order another for a Remington M700.

i prefer a walnut on the 336 myself. i have seen some of the stainless steel and laminate 336's, they look good, but i am still kind of traditional when it comes to lever action rifles.

that's not the Remington, that's the Marlin XS7 in 7mm-08. i am going to order one similar to it for the Remington.
