Boyd’s pepper stock



Log in to see fewer ads
I’m not sure if this is where l should post this request, but here goes.

I’m thinking about purchasing a Boyd’s laminate stock in the Pepper color. I don’t know how accurate the color chart on their web page is and was wondering if someone had one they could post a picture of. I sure would appreciate it!

Thanks,

Wonderdog1

This one for a Mauser came unfinished, it has Tru-Oil on it which gives it a slight yellowish cast. Lacquer would make it look a little more whitish in the light bands.

Thank you so much for an actual photo, that is a very handsome stock. The color of yours looks closer to the website photo. I have seen some internet pics. and a lot of them look very light in color.

I really appreciate you taking the time to help with my decision!

Be advised not all the laminates of the same color are the same color.

I have to say I'm pretty satisfied with Boyd's quality and material selections overall. I have bought from Revolution also and they are nicely done as well.

GladesGuy,

Thanks for the “Great photo”. That looks like a big improvement over the plastic American stock.

I have had mixed results with the stocks from Boyd’s. The first one l ordered was a train wreck. The barrel channel was off and not just a little and the bolt slot had to be opened up to close the bolt properly. I should have sent it back, but l had waited so long for delivery and l didn’t want to go through that again. Another had some damaged when l received it wasn’t bad and l repaired it myself. They did give me a $25. refund. I have purchased four so far from them so I’m batting .500.

You're welcome Wonderdog1. I have several and never an issue with them, but Boyds is not very customer friendly as you have found out unfortunately. I have this same stock in solid walnut on my Remington 721 in 30.06 and it looks very nice. They are comfortable stocks to shoot, but they are a bit heavy for my taste.

Nice looking setup you have done and a couple ?'s

Is your RAR shown the "pencil" barrel ??

How did you deal with the "V" blocks in your Boyd's stock? Did you bed the V blocks, or ???

I have a Boyd's AT1 stock for my RAR 223 with a pencil barrel, and been looking for suggestions on how people have dealt with the V blocks in a Boyds stock.

TIA
Jim

jpx2rk, yes the barrel is the thin sporter barrel. I thought about bedding the Y blocks but when I got the rifle stock they fit nice and tight. If your experience is that they are loose in the AT1 stock you received, you may want to bed the blocks which is relatively easy. My rifle shoots under a 1/2 inch at 100 yards with Nosler 70 gr. RDF bullets. So, I am not inclined to mess with anything unless accuracy falls off. I will note that the barrel is very temperature sensitive. If it gets too hot (I am in SoFla after all) the bullets will tend to walk. Let me know if you have any other questions.

My barrel walks up here in E TN, so .

How much material should I remove from under the V blocks? That is the million $ question for me as I've never bedded a rifle before. Any suggestions??

I am not an expert on bedding, but in this case I believe you would only need to use a very small amount of bedding compound under the Y blocks. I would not remove any wood as the blocks sit in an area that is not very generous for that sort of thing. I would use a dremel to drill a series of small holes on the area under and to the sides of the blocks to give the compound a grip to the wood. I should have mentioned that one other problem I had was that the trigger guard and mag release set that Boyd's sells with the stock is plastic and pure garbage. In order to permit me to torque the action screws properly, I purchased a set made of heavy aluminum.
