Hi guys. Whilst patiently awaiting the arrival of my Howa 7WSM I've been ogling Boyds stocks which are well received by members of this forum.

Question is, who imports and sells them in the UK?

​ mine shoots OK as it is but I sure like those laminate Boyds

not sure if I want thumbhole lightweight or prairie hunter

I believe guys have had them shipped out from Boyds USA
Can someone confirm this... what about duties VAT etc.

as long as the price is less than $100 +shipping Boyds will post stocks to the UK, cheaper than anything you can get here and they do what it says on the box :D

As long as the stock you are after is under $100 usd you are ok any more and they will not sell to us in the uk . just ordered one for my t3 well ordered it on the 19th of this month still waiting for it to be shipped think they must have sold a shed load ie not shipped as yet they have even taken them off there web site. this as cost me $167.55 usd £104 that's $99 usd for the stock and $68.55 postage then when it arrives in the uk you have import and postage to pay which on my last stock I got for my howa was £ 30 / £34 hope this helps craig

​Are they now doing Tikka T3 stocks then? I've been waiting for an email update from them when they were going to start producing them.

daft question which really should of been asked by my mate but he's too lazy....... do the stocks have to go to an rfd in this country or can anyone just go online and buy one to go to their home address? he's desperate for a thumbhole for his browning A-bolt and boyds are doing them for $74, bargain!

Tell him to get online and order it. :)

No need to ship to RFD.

You can just order them mate, i sold my Weatherby with this stock in 2008 or 2009 but the guy that bought it may be a member on here.

you can call Boyd's and have a chat - they are very helpful, I need mine adjusted to suit a Weatherby/howa action with a three stage Timney trigger and they gave me all the info on doing this, you can also order extra sling swivel studs if you want a separate bipod mount.

very good quality and lasted well while I had it.

regards,

Why don't you go to B&Q. Get some 3/4" beech ply and some gorilla wood glue.
Get B&Q to cut into 7" wide by 36" long strips. also buy 10 bags of sand!

Now glue 3 strips together! And place the bags of sand on top. Leave until the glue sets.
Trace around your stock. And get to work with a belt sander.
Cheaper than a boyds and you get a couple of try's at it!

Its just ply wood after all!

Just emailed Boyds about the T3 and had a reply in less than 5 minutes!

We are manufacturing stocks for the Tikka T3. We came out with the stock on 10/16/13, but unfortunately we pulled them off of our site. The good news is that we expect to put them back on our site within the next week or two. Please keep checking back and when they are available, they will be listed under the Make as Tikka.


Thanks for your interest,
