I love the look of those laminate stocks.

Right after I got the gun I was looking around at stocks for it since the factory one wasn't the best fit for me. I found Boyd's and fell in love with them. I was thinking about going with the thumbhole stock, but I know too many lefties that might want to shoot it. Plus it kind of prefer the traditional style. Hoping to get to the range soon to punch some paper and see what it does. Hoping to hit golf balls at 100 yards cconsistenty with it.

How do you like the Boyd's laminated stock? I was considering getting a basic Marlin 60 with plastic stock then upgrade it with Tech-Sights and a nice stock.

I love it. It fits and feels great compared to the factory one. It does require fitting it to the tube magazine. The sling studs were too long so I had to cut some of the threads off to keep it from hitting. If you have a router, it's really easy to trim for the tube, I used a dremel with a router bit. It worked but isn't the prettiest. But you can only see it if you're looking down the barrel. I'd buy one again in a heartbeat. Even considered upgrading my Ruger M77.

Hunter,

Thanks for the info about the Boyd's stock. I do have the tools or skills to route a channel for the tube, so I'll look for another option.

Um...if you didn't use a Marlin-type front swivel stud that uses a nut...you probably won't wanna put much pressure on the sling...
Many long-term members of other sites have reported that the studs can pull out, since the cut-off threads mean you don't get enough grip.

You can order the proper sling stud with flat nut thru Marlin or from Uncle Mike's (i forget the part #)...
but Marlin's got 'em :)

Its worth $10 ;)
Besides...the last thing ya want is to have your sling stud pop out when you're climbing something...or walking over a bridge...etc...

The sling studs are bolted in place. They came with a nylock nut, but swapped it out for a lower profile nut. I will look into the style you mentioned if it gives me more clearance.

Here's what it looks like :)

Thanks for the link. I will probably order. Just itching to get some trigger time on it. The gun looks so good I hate keeping it locked up out of sight. Might have to build a shelf to display it on.
