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.

+1!!!!! Put one on a Swede M96 action. A little fitting was needed. About 1/2 an hour.

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.

Before channel was widened-


Sanding the channel-


Finished product-


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