thanks shrek for the info.Boyd's Riflestocks has SEVERAL varieties of Walnut solids, laminates, and Lefty Stocks!!
so in a nutshell, the Boyd's are pretty good stocks? i am giving some thought to doing at least one of mine with the wood stock, and will most likely glass bed it and pillar bed it also.The great thing about the Boyd's stocks, we've tested the heck out of 'em over at RFC & G&G
Only need minor fitting, as does any change of stock. Of course, I do suggest glass bedding or pillar bedding for the perfect fit
Those are some pretty decent prices. I may have to get one when I get my XL7 .270. I may get the laminated one to match my Remington m700Boyd's Riflestocks has SEVERAL varieties of Walnut solids, laminates, and Lefty Stocks!!
i agree with your assessment of the factory Marlin synthetic stocks. the only flaw i found on them was the forend to be little flimsy. an easy fix though and i fixed all of mine.Yes Boyds Gun Stocks had solid and laminate stocks for the x7. Reasonably priced around $100. Free floated it dropped in slick as can be, only issue I had was the stock to reciever screw has a flat square shouldered screw and the Boyds insert in the stock is for a counter sunk screw head, I used a bottoming reamer and squared and flattened it and then the screw reached the threads and sat recessed below the stock making it smooth to handle. I like the look and feel of wood over synthetic. Grouping and impact did not change with the added wood stock. I will be replacing my other marlin synthetics with Boyds wood stocks in due time. A note on Marlins synthetic stocks, they appear and feel the strongest of all the other brands that I looked at in the price/budget entry level bracket. All 4 of mine shoot sub moa.
