    Thumbhole stock for Sako 75

    I shall be re-barreling my Sako 75 .243 into .308 soon (well, not me, a very reputable rifle-smith will be).
    Anyway, in the run up to this decision myself and Sauer were paying a visit to RG Rifles, and as per usual found ourselves drooling over his personal collection. Amongst these was a rifle Mr Gall had built on a Remmy 700 action, for use in Africa using a lovely Mcmillan thumbhole stock in a sort of imitation wood finish Mcmillan refer to as Mcwoody.
    Imagine my dismay when this reply to my enquiry came from Mcmillan:

    Hello Malcolm

    Unfortunately the Sako 75 rifles will only fit into 3 stock designs. The Sako 75 Hunter, classic and the varmint. None of the thumbhole designs will work for that action. However the three I mentioned above are all available in the McWoody finish.

    Thank you,

    So, what are the options for a thumbhole stock for a 75 then ?

    Aye, I had a looky at that, didn't notice it was quite so recent, and hoped perhaps there'd be a lightweight synthetic type thumbhole stock on the market by now. Nice job you did though Sir !

    Limited in my opinion. If you look closely at my Avatar you will see a Sako 75 in 243 Win in a thumb-hole laminate stock. It's a very expensive undertaking and not one I would recommend or repeat.

    If you want more info on what I did, please send me a PM.
