I've got a Herters U9 (BSA monarch action) that does have the original stock, in almost perfect condition. However its a right handed stock and I'm a lefty
I thought about simply attempting to modify the existing stock by rasping down the harsh edge though in actuality I'd really like to leave the original be. Aside from that I'm worried that to even make a difference i'll have to take it down too far to ensure a proper cheek weld as I do plan on mounting an optic on it.
My only other option is a custom stock, however the only company I've found that will even "partial" inlet for that particular action (anywhere close to my price range) is Richards Microfit..
The prices seem very fair and I was really excited to get this project started...until I did some research on the company..
I fully realize that it's a "get what you pay for" kinda deal and I actually prefer the fact that I get to get my hands dirty, learn a few things and really make this rifle my own. However, some of the stories I've read are disheartening to say the very least.
If they're shipping out such hack-jobs on more common action inlets then I can only imagine what kinda boogered up mess I will receive as I doubt they've produced a stock for this action in a long time, if ever...
I fear that I may wait 6 months (longer in some cases) for them to send me an unusable, $200 piece of firewood..alas I have NO other options..do I?
I would love to hear some experienced opinions on the matter as I'm pretty bummed out
