Any reputable rifle builder should be able to do it. If your in Alaska I donít know of any up there. If you are willing to ship the options are endless.


Sierracharlie out....

That is what I figured, I think some with the fancy cnc wood drilling machine could do it. Just trying to figure out all the angles. I may just use a drill press and do it the old fashion way slowly.

If it were me, I would contact Boyd's, and ask them if I could send it back and get it cut for the rifle that I want to put it on. They sell those stocks cheaply already cut for whatever rifle. They definitely have a system down, where it's very quick and easy to finish each blank for a given rifle type. Probably be the quickest, easiest way to get it done.

Now your talking. Be sure to lay out a center line.

I did ask them right off the bat, for some reason they said they wouldnt do it. I will just copy the stock rifle stock inleting in to this boyds. I for sure thought they would do it also.
