I havnt found many other options for a thumbhole laminate, and don't know anything about this companies quality. Any thoughts?

Please note: I have no experience with this company, nor do I know anything of it's quality.

I wonder if your bull barrel sendero would cause them problems. (i.e. do they have one on site for test fits).

Some reviews (bad plus a good) at http://stockys-stocks.pissedconsumer.com/
I would want to make sure that I get the right stock the first time. Returns based on fit seem to be problems.

Another 'unhappy' customer at http://www.snipershide.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1733558
Delays and additional money requested.

Too bad, it looks like a pretty good stock, if you like that kinda thing.....

They said that some sanding of the barrel channel may need requiring but it wasn't difficult or time consuming.

I have a couple stocks that I bought from Stocky's.Never had any problems buying from them.
Both stocks are made by Boyd's,but were a Stocky's exclusive.Boyd's doesn't make LH stocks for LH actions,but Stocky's had some made for them.
Mine were both unfinished (Their LH stocks only came unfinished),which was fine.I had to sand out the channels on both for heavy barrels.

If you need to widen the channel,the easiest/best way that I've found is to get about 1 ft of pvc pipe in the size you need,wrap with some 80 grit sandpaper and run back and forth in the barrel channel. Go slow,and check often to make sure you are staying straight with the stock.When you get close change to a finer grit,and then finish it with a grit that gives you the finish you want.

Boyd's makes a Thumbhole Varmint stock that is already inletted for a heavy barrel if your rifle is RH.

i too have to give a big thumbs up to Boyd's Gunstocks. i have two of my rifles that i have restocked with their laminate stocks and they are definately top notch and decently priced. shipping was very fast as well. i will be getting another one shortly in the uture for another rifle. check them out..
