    One thing to consider is the cost of finishing these stocks. The Richards Micro-fit stock in my gallery was cheap to buy, but expensive to pillar bed and finish. I have just had it touched up again as I got some stains on it. Overall, the cost of the laminate stock was no different from a Mcmillan, and I think a Mcmillan or similar will require less care and maintenance.

    Regards JCS

    do they really take alot to do, the laminate presently on my 700 is touching barrel anyhow and has shot 1'' holes for ten yrs now .i am a bit of a caveman as far as gunfit /smithing is concern .trust your judgement jcs can you tell me whats involved ?

    Following up on my earlier comment, the fit of the Richards Microfit stock was good, it was finishing off the sanded laminate that took a fair bit of time. I would suggest getting your hands on an unfinished stock so that you can see what you are getting into before parting with any cash. If you pm me an e-Mail address, I can send you some more detailed photos of the finished stock?

    Regards JCS

    I hav just ordered one from Boyds , the same Palo has also linked

    I ordered mine as a finished stock 2 weeks ago and today is ready to pick up at my local parcel centre
    It so far has cost
    $92 + $51.65 postage = $143.65 / 87 approx for stock and shipping and 23.94 import & clearance costs
    so 110.94
    not sure what the difference is between the one I purchased direct from the States and UK based stocks
    except for about 150+ and a 3 month longer waiting time
    I certainly would not be in any rush to place an order with a UK based company at the mo untill you hav researched a little more on importing a finished one in or as JCS says an un-finished one to finish it yourself
