While attending the POMA Conference, I noticed some gun stocks that would make any gun personalized/customized very easily. I just had to check these out! With some help from the Boyd’s Gunstock Sales Department, I soon had the correct measurements and model information to order my very own thumb-hole laminate stock in the beautiful Sky blue color.

I ordered the gunstock to fit a Savage model 110 in 30.06 bolt action rifle that we had picked up for my grandson. The rifle was very used, but I love Savage and felt this would make a great starter rifle for Ryan. Blue is one of his favorite colors, and the customized rifle would be a great way to commemorate his hunting start. The gunstock arrived very quickly, and it was as beautiful as I remembered!  The thumb hole stock needed only some slight sanding to be able to fit the rifle. The complete installation only took thirty minutes or so. If you are uncomfortable doing this type of work on your own rifles, a qualified gunsmith would be able to assist you in this installation. Talk with your gunsmith about leaving your gunstock free-floating, or you can have it bedded.

The action of the rifle was still in perfect working order; this used and abused rifle got an immediate face lift with the custom gunstock, and it will be around for many years to come. Maybe someday Ryan will pass this rifle to his own children and include the story of how his Nanna gave it to him. Make your own family hunting heirlooms that the hunters in your family will love it!

Visit the Boyd’s Gunstocks website at https://www.boydsgunstocks.com/custom-options. There are many options to choose from including: woods, finishes, Laser Engraving, custom grips, tips, pads, length of pull, and adjustable comb. I opted for the Featherweight Thumb Hole Stock with the length of pull appropriate for Ryan, the 1/2″ recoil pad with Boyd’s logo, and of course, the Sky Blue Laminate. The MSRP of this particular gunstock is $129.00, but with all of the options available, your custom gunstock could vary in price. Ordering is done on the website at https://www.boydsgunstocks.com/, or you can contact their sales department at: Customers@boydsgunstocks.com or call them at 605-996-5011. When you contact them have your make, model, action, shape, and finish information available.
