Boyd's stock for M1A...?
Anyone have one?Would really love to see a good photo! The only one I've seen is the one on Fulton and it's too leeeetle...Also not interested in the custon target type...really would like to see one such as Boyd's. Any other input on the Boyd's oversized model in Pepper Laminate would be appreciated!

I have two...
I have two Boyd's stock sets for my all-GI Fed Ord. One is a walnut 'blem' from their clearance section - (I can't see any imperfection) - for my 'display' stock... and the other is my 'pimped out' Pepper laminate that I mounted a Harris bipod, black leather sling, black recoil pad... I don't notice any of the 'big 2x4' feel that others complain about with the Boyd's stock - yes, it is a bit more hand-filling than a USGI glass stock, but I prefer it this way. I'll be painting my USGI glass stocks in some camo pattern - maybe six-color Desert and a Vietnam-era Tigerstripe... Sorry, but I don't have the capability to post pics of my rifle with the various stocks...
About the only thing I had to do is relieve the top of the stock where the action sits to accomodate the extra ridge on the bottom of the Fed Ord reciever... Oh, and a little massaging of the handguard spring clip groove so the clip would fit right.

I have a pepper laminate from Boyd's. It is a match dimensioned stock . I elected to go with the model that was inletted for the stock liner (something I would not do again as it is unnecessary for a bedded rifle ). It was not a "drop in" stock as minor judicious relieving of the wood was required to get everything to fit properly. Sorry I don't have pics as the old digital camera is FUBAR. It's a stock for the non-traditional since it's not your usual walnut or birch. Seems to be a solid well made product.

If you don't mind the larger dimensions, it can be a very nice stock. Keep in mind that some folks (myself included) have had some issues with receiver heel gap with Boyds stocks on Springfield rifles. Whether the fault is with Boyds or SA, I can't be certain, but my money would be on a little of both. What variant/mfg of M-14 are you planning to mate with this stock?
