Boyd's Pro Varmint in Walnut



Log in to see fewer ads
Had to custom order this from Boyd's. Arrived today. I have to say, I really like it. I have a nice 24" .920 barrel and a BX trigger group with some Kidd parts to put in it, and a Nikon scope for it. I think I'll put the stock under the tree, Santa never brings me anything....

Thanks, guys. Took about 3-4 weeks, custom order. Well worth the wait. At one point I got an email from them saying that they had made it, but it didn't meet their quality standards, so they were going to make another one. I like that.

As noted, Santa will put the stock under the tree for Christmas Day. My son and I will be building out a couple of 10/22's over the holiday break, I'll post some pics of this when all done.

I was also looking at the walnut stock. Is that the lowest grade or one of the better grades Boyds offers. Thanks for your info....

The OP's pictures show nothing more than it is brown. I am also curious. I didn't know Boyd's offered a grade choice.

They don't for the Ruger 10/22 ProVarmint. The walnut is considered standard grade. Meaning you will have variation between the amount of figure in each stock, but there won't be much figure in any of the standard grade stocks. You might get them to go up in grade with a phone call, but that would be surprising. I do like the walnut though. I have carved several of these, in much better woods, as I like the stock shape.

However, they do offer the better grades, for the more "High End" actions, such as a Sako.

Right, the solid walnut option is only a $35 upgrade (in satin) for this stock. The wood is not highly figured or anything, and I imagine a fair amount of staining was done to get the color uniform. Personally, I'm not a fan of "fancy" wood stocks. I tend to prefer a basic, traditional type wood and finish. There are a lot of options out there, I specifically ordered this to make a "basic" looking rifle. I actually like the wood stocks that come with the 10/22, I just wanted a different shape.

Did you ever get the chance to skin down the slab I sent you to see if there was anything to it?

Not yet. Little backed up trying to get a couple stocks shipped before XMAS. However, I may get a chance this weekend. Thanks again

How much did it cost, if I might ask?

I'm in the market for a stock and that seems like a great option.

Base price $129 plus $35 upgrade for finished walnut, plus something for shipping, I can't recall.
