Default BC butt plate suggestions

I bought an unfinished BC stock here in the classifieds and finished it this winter, and my project rifle just came back from the smith and I am wondering what I should use as a butt plate. I don't want Brass or fancy, I thought about black PVC pipe material heated and shaped to match the contour but thought I would ask you all for input first. It may be covered with a leather cuff anyway but I need the wood to be protected under the leather incase it ever gets dropped.
please post or PM your thoughts and suggestions. Thank you thejanitor

I am always looking for Simmons whitetail classic scopes- PM me if you may have one to sell. Thanks

This might get disqualified for being fancy, but a couple of weeks ago I saw a rifle with a buttplate made out of some sort of exotic wood. Really striking. It was custom job on a Martini action. I think the guy said it was African Blackwood. He needed to add half inch to the LOP.

That Buff horn would get my nod as well, and not that unreasonably priced IMO.


If it was me I'd probably ended up doing in in white PVC which I'd cut, flattened out with a heat gun, then molded to shape. When all is done either paint or good black duct tape, gorrilla tape to make it black and protect it.



Yeah I can be a real cheap bastige.



Liked the looks of that horn though.

Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.

Why not get a flat piece of black Kydex instead? For under $12 it is quite cheap, even cheaper if you scour the web:


Its a bit thinner, but less brittle and much easier to shape, and I think it's available in many colors as well.

What about a buttplate made for a different rifle? I know it would have been nice to know before hand. I am thinking a buttplate made for a Ruger 10/22. Plastic and rolled over at the top with screw in the top and at the back of the bottom toe.

You could always check out Packmyer buttplates. They have grind to fit styles...

The curve is the biggest problem. I haven't looked at the sites to know what else is offered out there.
I also haven't looked at cross brand fit yet either.
Thanks every body, I will keep all of these things in mind as I shop. Thanks thejanitor
