Colt gave me the name of an old timer that worked with Sauer many years ago. Anyway, after much more searching and recommendations, I found a shop in Hamilton MT. that makes Colt-Sauer replacement stocks, that look like the org. The stocks are not cheap, but my rifle is not cheap either. I mailed my rifle off yesterday for stock replacement. They make the stock to fit the individual rifle to perfection. Once I get it back I will follow up with a report.
Beautiful rifle! I have heard of Hamilton, MT but it was about the great custom rifle barrels... sounds like the place to go for custom rifle work

Here is the link to the Custom shop in Hamilton, MT. This is where I sent my Colt Sauer to be repaired.
