Default Need your thoughts on a replacement stock

I love my Rem 700 SPS Varmint in .243.....but I hate the stock.

The wife asked me to give her my Christmas list. The only thing I really need is a replacement stock for this rifle. The only thing I know I want in a stock is a thumbhole.....can y'all give me your recommendations?

Boyds was just having a sale. I had bought a thumbhole for my son, and a classic for myself.

Boyds if you want a laminate one.

Richards microfit if you want to finish a thumbhole in either laminate or Walnut.

If you want a good synthetic you have

or

How did you get that picture of my girlfriend as you avitar ???

Back to the subject, the stock on your rifle looks pretty nice, I'm sure you could sell it and recoup some of your costs for a new stock.
