BB 7-2 Synthetic Stocks



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello,
Does anyone know of a stock manufacturer who makes synthetic/laminated/plastic/or even wood stocks for the Biathlon Basic 7-2 ?
I'm looking for something that looks like the H&S Precision or McMillan stocks that are on the Savage tactical rifles.
Thanks.

Biathlon Stock

When it comes to replacement stocks (wooden or synthetic) for any RU rifle.
Sad to say, you're pretty much on your own.
If I remember correctly, McMillan may have the pattern for a biathlon action on file.
But, McMillan would be a very expensive route to go.

I recently went through this exercise of looking for an aftermarket replacement stock for a BB action. My search was unsuccessful. Marc at Altius Biathlon can do a stock for you, and I'm sure it would be a very top-notch job. I was on a much more restricted budget than a new Altius or Larsen stock would have cost.

However, I then shifted gears and decided to do all the inletting on a Boyd's laminated stock.... Here's the thread on that work.

It's not terribly difficult to do the inletting for the BB action, it's basically a round bottom with a radiused opening for the trigger and mag well.

If you choose to do a similar project, make sure that the dimension from the top of the stock along the centerline of the action has an appropriate amount of depth to the trigger area. That is one of the most important dimensions to get worked out for the purpose of inletting and fitment.

I'll second what JettMugg said about the inletting, if your handy with tools it's not terribly difficult. It just seems daunting if your looking at it the first time.

When I bought my BB from Mac Tilton in January he said he was working on a silhouette style stock for the BB and it might be available in a few months. You might give him a call and see where it's at.

Great advice once again!
I'm working on a limited budget also...I think I'll research some of your ideas.
I'm sure if I had to, I could get a walnut blank from someone and give it a try.
You folks have already done the groundwork for me.

You might want to ask Boyd's if they will do an un-inletted "Tacticool" stock as a starting point. Those stocks have a similar design to the other tactical stocks, and are an inexpensive starting point.

I'm thinking about going the auto body filler route myself. Now I've just gotta work up the gumption to do it.

I'll admit, that is unique.
I shouldn't laugh, I might wind up making a prototype out of bondo.

It is not uncommon to us finishing body filler on composite stocks to touch-up minor imperfections.

However, some stock modifiers have used body filler to perform radical recontouring.
From a structural perspective ... not sound engineering.
However, for purely aesthetic modifications the use of bondo presents a quick, easy and inexpensive solution.
