Default boyds gun stocks

They make good stocks but as you noted they need to be bedded. What kind of rifle is it? Another place to get stocks that I've dealt with is Richards Microfit Gunstocks

I recently put a Boyd's thumbhole on my wife's Marlin 60...it's NICE

I prefer doing a bedding job on new stocks anyway...if one is gonna go thru all the trouble to get a new stock, might as well hand-fit it and make it as good a fit as possible...it's not like bedding is difficult

I'm waiting for the next run of Marlin 60 stocks so I can replace the stock on my Glenfield 99-G (60 clone made for bigbox stores).
