is it because they can talk about shooting better than they can actually shoot?

because Some people just don't have the $$ to do the trip. The match fee isn't the issue, and in fact, I'm sure everyone knows the Value of what you are teaching. But for some folks the Travel is a Big "Hump" to get over. If my Raise were coming sooner....

I'm looking to sell one. I got the rifle at a steal of a deal, but I'd just hate to bugger up the stock since it's a truly nice one. Just don't think it'd work all to well for gophers since I tend to use odd surfaces as rests.

Around $40-$45 for a plain wood OEM stock in my area

Well that sucks. I was hoping for closer to $70-$80ish.

I'm not sure if this is what you mean by "plain wood", but this is essentially the stock I'm wanting to switch out.

That looks like laminated wood on my little phone screen. Its worth more but I'm not sure how much. I'm guessing you're close.

That's exactly what it is. It's a laminated stock that's set up for a heavy barrel.



*something witty and awe inspiring*

used, in very good condition, i'd guess anywhere from $50-100 depending how bad the buyer needed or wanted it.

just FYI, those laminated stocks can usually handle a quite a bit of abuse.
