the leupold mount screws dont fit so tomorrow i will try another set and hope the reciever holes arent to blame.
our rifles are at polar opposites in the looks department! there is nothing shiny on this thing.Bill, I tried a Savage rifle with a synthetic stock at the shop, little wonder I bought a Savage rifle with a ( beautiful, and functional ) laminated one.:bling:
im thinking of filling the buttstock with lead shot!I took a cheapy plastic savage stock and camo'd it. Looks awesome. Used Krylon for the primer coat. I even painted the last 3 inches black on the front end of the stock and trimmed it with a gold 1/10" wide band for detail.
Those cheapy plastic stocks are double pillared. They ain't really as cheesy as they appear. There is a bit of engineering magic designed into them.
