no kidding, I have been looking for one and have seen some sell for more than the m77 in 30.06 I have in one, the stock is worth more than the gun! Madness. All of the M77 stocks are too expensive, I have been looking for one for a couple of years and just can't spend the money on the boat paddle, the black nylon or wood. I need a beater stock. Hard to find.

No they arent the best. They have a cult following , but originally they were just tupperware, and degraded frequently. I personally like the wood stock better, and it has bottom metal and a steel trigger guard, the boat paddle does not.

McMillan was the best. Mpi was next inline. The boatpaddle was much maligned at the time but it was a rigid light weight stock that worker just fine. Had a few back in the day. Didn't realize how much the value had gone up, sold one and it went on an auction sight a week later for about 4x what I sold it for....

Think the cult following is a byproduct of lack of alternative options.

That top rifle would look good in a wood laminate stock!...

Yes it wood ive looked into it, but then id have to buy the bottom metal and trigger guard, and so it would be pretty pricey for an up grade in a gun i shoot infrequently.

You see i have a beautiful Cz 452 17 hmr,

Best, not for me. It might be more stable, but I will take the classic walnut like mine any day. That goes for any rifle. No synthetics or laminates, just plain walnut!

My first Ruger was a 77/22 stainless boat paddle, no amount of tinkering could get it to out shoot my Marlin 39A, it went down the road and it was years before I tried another.

The wood stocks look more refined for sure. But for a rifle that I carry around on the SxS, the canoe paddle takes bumps and bruises better. But they do get a dingy gray dust to them in certain spots. I like the green insert ones too. Not sure what the green colored inserts represent though? Maybe just an accent color I guess? Who knows.
