I bought the one that comes with a wooden Boyd stock. It might have been cheaper to get them separately, but then with shipping, maybe not. I cut a pool 'noodle' and use that as a cheek piece.

The stock is a bit small but I have not had any issue getting comfortable behind the scope. New glass is next for me. Got confirmation from my prettier half that we are going to the range tomorrow to get her new fvxp dialed in @ 100 yards. I am really excited for her to be the first to fire it tomorrow and for her to learn dialing in her scope.

Getting a new scope as that trashco wouldn't hold zero. Thinking of the BSA sweet 22. Will put groups and pics when new scope on later this week

I had trouble with the scope on the new one also. Yesterday it walked all over the place. I got it close but need another range trip to make sure it will hold zero.

Yeah that was my problem. I zeroed it then yesterday I shot it again and I was like 1 foot high and 5 in left and it wouldn't go back to zero again

On mine i put a BSA 4X32. Took a couple shots to make make sure it was zeroed (with the help of a bore laser) and it stayed very veru accurate for as long as i had the gun... i could hit quarters at 100 ft which if u dont think sounds hard try it

Yeah I have heard good things about BSA on 22's. That's why I'm putting the sweet 22 on mine now

It was about $65 unfinished. I bought it unfinished because I needed to shorten it and reshape the cheek rest to fit my wife. The scope is a BSA 4-16x40 since it is a 17 HM2. She shoots it at 100 yards. I have a BSA Sweet 22 on one of my 22 rifles and it works. The top turret will dial in the range and they give you several turrets for different weight bullets. I am looking at the Boyds Evolution stock. Keep in mind you will need a metal trigger guard.

Do you have the 3-9x40 or 6-18x40 BSA sweet 22? I found the boyd stock I want. It's a wooden thumbhole stock for a heavy barrel for 99. How much does a metal trigger guard cost ?
