Default Wood Stock for a Browning .270?

Hey, all. Found my way into a good trade today and wound up with a Browning .270 A-Bolt Stalker. The serial shows it was made in 1992, and from the looks of it, rarely – if ever – fired. The only issue I have with it (and it is just a minor issue) is the composite stock. I would much prefer wood. I spent a few minutes looking on the internet, but nothing came quickly. Any ideas? Shoot, for that matter, anyone wanna trade?

I myself would leave the composite stock on it. They don't change with the weather. Fort Bliss is not as humid as where I live. But, it is full of mountains and and rocky areas from the mining that used to happen in that area. scrub brush would play hell on a hunting rifle with a wooden stock.

Great point, Gun Nut, and I agree 100%. I just don’t do much rifle hunting out this way, though. The deer/pig lease I share with a friend is back in North Central Texas. Now, seven days and a wake up from now I’ll be on the Rio Grande hunting dove, and between that and the TCU/LSU game next Saturday night, I’m almost beside myself with anticipation.

C3shooter sent me that link (above) and I just fell in love with this stock. I’m gonna order it Monday AM, and for $97 it’s a real bargain in my mind.

By the way, if anyone knows of good rifle hunting spots near FT Bliss that are not in NM, I’m all ears! Just haven’t had much luck finding anything since getting stationed in this AO.

OK - took c3shooter's advice. However, got to looking at some ideas on the ol’ “interweb” and decided I would modify the composite stock *just to see* what my son and I could pull off with a little paint, netting and creativity. The result? Sexy. Am I still ordering a nice Boyd's stock? Yes. But, if I’m ever about to step off into a rocky hunt in bad weather, this bad boy is coming with.
