WTB in MO Ruger No. 3 buttstock

#1 Post by TedH » Mon Jan 20, 2020 1:12 pm

I picked up a Ruger No 3 in 375 Winchester. Love the rifle, but I absolutely hate the butt plate. Like to find another stock to cut and install a rubber pad.

Good people to deal with. Had a few stocks made up from them. Most recently was my Savage 99F.

Once. Despite their bad reviews. Never again.

A #1 butstock is suposed to able to be used, but have never tried it as I am okay with my #3 45/70 the way it sits.

Try Boyd's, they cut a lot of stocks, multiple colors of laminate and high grades of walnut as well as plain walnut, might even have maple!

I've dealt with Boyd's and like what they put out. Unfortunately they don't make stocks for #1 or #3 Rugers.

That's the problem with Boydes! I've tried a couple times to cut a one of for me. Nothing crazy, just 'X' inletting one 'Y' profile- nope we can't do that.
