T-Bolt Stock, Walnut or Composite?



Log in to see fewer ads
Which is the more stable stock, in terms of accuracy and consistency, for the T-bolt?
I am guessing the Walnut, but thought I'd ask you experts first.
Thanks

Does anyone have pics of what the walnut stock looks like without the action in it?
Can it be bedded and pillared?

I'd think wood stock would be better

Mine is wood and I feel the wood is far more stable and way more attractive. I have the .22 mag and accuracy is very good. This one was made in Japan and the stock wood and fit is outstanding, top quality. I've never owned a rifle with a plastic stock but from what I read on the forum, the plastic stocks can lead to accuracy problems.

I'm one of those older guys who believe a gun is way more than just a tool, give me the blued steel and wood every time. Just my take on it ---

To answer the question, it looks like it might be pretty tricky to bed this action, but this is my second T-bolt and both shot fine out of the box. Got rid of the first one due to too heavy to tote around in the squirrel woods -- heavy target barrel-- very accurate, but heavy -- John
