    Was it much more than the 130 or so to get it delivered from the States? Also did you have to ring them or can it be ordered from the website? I had a look but couldn't find them listed online.

    You wont get one for 130 delivered from the states. They may be cheap over there but buy the time that customs take their whack, and you've paid for the courier etc, you can almost double that price. Mine was a little less than double that from Edgar Bros, expedited which is one good reason for using them as ordering agents. I called them looking for one, and they happened to have a cancelled customer order in stock but can get one for I guess anyone who calls them.

    Also you need to factor into your budget properly inletting them, (they always need a bit for the best fit and clearance round the barrel) and also whether you want to have it bedded. I had mine milled out for more barrel clearance for my custom barrel, and Devcon bedded. That rifle shoots about .15MOA, regularly...the most accurate I've owned. The work to the stock is partly responsible for that.

    Times must have changed then as the Boys stock I ordered from the states last year was 130 including the customs charges, $160 delivered and about 27 in charges this side of the pond. Luckily mine fitted pretty well with only a tiny bit of bedding required around the trigger guard which i did myself. They do say good things never last!
