Default Boyd’s stocks

Anyone here have experience with Boyd’s stocks? I’m thinking about putting one on a youth Rem 700 I just bought. Was bedding needed? Fitting issues?

I’d say they are a bump above a synthetic factory stock. I’d personally look into a bell and Carlson with aluminum block.

Boyd’s makes some really good stocks it is possible you will need to do a little fitting. I have installed pillars and bedded all of the ones I have installed at least a dozen of them. The good thing about Boyd’s is they can be cut to your length of pull.

Thanks for all the feedback, my plan is to get the LOP 12 3/4 and chop the barrel down to 18in. It’s a 243, OAL around 37-38in it’s going to be a little truck gun. Probably around the same size as the Rem 600 Mohawks.

We put a Boyd's AT-One on a Ruger M-77 in .243 for my grandson. It dropped right in. We chose the AT-One because it is adjustable for comb height and LOP. That way we can adjust it as he grows.

I put one on a Winchester Model 70 to replace the synthetic stock. I bedded mine, but didn’t shoot it without it. I had no fitting issues or anything.

Had a thumb hole. Too heavy for my style of hog hunting. Took some fitting.
Nephew has one on his Ruger and it is been perfect for his
6.5 sniping of longer distance hogs.

I have a 10-22 with heavy barrel in a thumbhole laminate. Dropped right in with no fitting necessary. It is also a one holer @ 50 yds.

I’ve got two, Ruger American and Weatherby Vanguard. I bedded both and they shoot lights out.

I've got an At One adjustable that my boys and I shoot. Did take some work to get it to fit but wasn't too bad. Definitely would recommend.

Put one on a model 70 .270. It shoots fine and was a drop in fit no fitting required. I would like to get mine bedded at some point but for now it is shooting fine with no bedding. Nothing crazy but will stay 1 moa or a touch better. Name:  KIMG0080.jpg

I have two rifles that have Boyd's stocks, then a third one, that came with a Boyd's stock, but I removed it, because it caused my hand to cramp up pretty badly, because it was too thin, through the grip. My Savage 93, don't remember the whole part number, but it's a heavy barrel stainless rifle, that came with a laminated Boyd's thumb hole stock, beautiful stock. But after shooting 20 plus rounds through the gun, my right hand would cramp up badly, I figured out quickly, it was a result of the stock being too thin through the grip. So I replaced that stock with another thumb hole stock, that is very comfortable, I really like that stock.
I have a Howa 1500, that came from the factory with a laminated wood varmint stock, that stock as a nice thick grip with a palm swell. That stock fits great, I love that stock, I would not get rid of it for any reason.

Then I bought a Weatherby Vanguard/Howa 1500, with a Boyd's stock on it. It's a nice stock I may leave it on the gun, but if I can find a nice thumb hole stock I will replace it.
As for the bedding question, yes, I would have any of their stocks bedded or most any other companies stocks bedded. I think my Boyd's stock that is on my Howa, came with bedding pillars, not sure if it was the Boyd's or the stock I put on the Savage, pretty sure it is the Boyd's that has the pillars.
The three Boyd's I have had, all fit the rifle very well, but not good enough that I would not bed them.

I put one on a Savage Axis in 223 and it changed the whole feel of the gun for the better. Plus it is a real looker now and shoots as good. No fitting at all. Drop in. I also bought the replacement trigger guard.
