Walnut Stock?



Log in to see fewer ads
I purchased my 597 quite some time ago, and like many here, had my share of frustration. That has all been sorted out and the rifle really is a shooter.

This 597 came with a brown laminate stock; it's nice, looks good...I just can't see plastic on a firearm. My complaint though, the stock is not walnut.

Years back, I seem to remember that Boyd's offered a traditional style stock that was walnut. But no more, and scouting out the internet turns up nothing but plastic or laminated space-age looking stuff.

Anybody else prefer the look and fondle-factor walnut? Sure, the price would be a bit up, maybe more than the value of the rifle, but I would think a plastic stock from Ebay could be readily duplicated. Boyd's surely must have the pattern(s) from their walnut offering.

Any thoughts?

The kids like plastic. Kinda sad but at least they are shooting and that is a good thing. I know some young people, twenties, that go shooting most every Sunday, Sunday Gunday, most have plastic stocked rifles and pistols, but some are getting into wheel guns and even black powder. Maybe plastic is a gateway drug into the good stuff, wood and steel.

Call or mail Boyds to see if they're coming out with the 597 walnut in the near or far future. That or find someone with a duplicator but that will co$t.

Hey NHcollector, Just wanted to thank you.
As a great grandfather not many call me a kid anymore and I'll take it anytime I can get it.
I've liked plastic stocked rifles since the mid 1970's. I don't own any blued or wood stocked centerfire rifles and every handgun is stainless steel.

The Pro Varmint is apparently for heavy barrel rifles, mine is standard. The Rimfire Hunter or Classis styles would be nice.

No response to my email yet...

This is what my noodle barrel looks like in a heavy barrel Boyds stock. Just looks like a good float to my eye. YMMV of course.

Al, that does look ok.

Boyds got back with "at this time we don't offer walnut" for standard barrels. I already knew that, had asked about down the road...I gave up. At least they did respond, but didn't answer my question. I probably should have called. Anyway, their walnut is plain jane, not very interesting. Prices seem ok though.

Call Richards microfit. I'm almost certain they can do a 597 inlet. You're going to have to do the finish work though.

I was talking about young people, the ones I know do like plastic. At 73 I like the rifles I grew up with. I collect everything from flintlocks to a few ARs. Plastic does have utility, so does stainless steel, it just doesn't move me.
