I bought the brown laminted stock from boyd brothers and have had no problems so far. My stainless gun looks great with them. Sold my walnut stocks for about 110.00 on ebay, paid 120.00 for the new ones. Pretty solid 10.00 investment I think. I got the buttstock, and 2 forearms (rifle and ML) took about 2 weeks to get them. I think these are the same stocks that T/C is using for the Whitetail Clasic model. Pete

forend question

I have regular .308 and 45/70 and a heavy barrel in the .223. Do you need different forends for the regular barrel and the heavy barrel with these laminate stocks?

Don't know about the different forearms, by the way, I was thinking of getting a 45/70 for my encore. Like those bigger holes:) What is the kick like?

Nasty! I cant figure out why they don't offer it in a heavy barrel. I ported mine to help the kick. But its still nasty. Had to change the pad to a tripple magnum, Fist 6 rounds blued my shoulder good. KN

45/70

I agree--the kick is nasty and it should be offered in the heavy barrel. With that big hole, the regular barrel is so light you would think it was made from aluminum! I loaded up what I thought was some light loads and went to the range. After about 8-9 rounds, it didn't seem to be hurting too bad--but when I leaned back in the chair and lowered my right arm to my side I heard/felt a small thunk as my shoulder popped back into place. Going to have to get a PAST pad before I work up stouter loads.

Different Forends

Yes you do need different forends according to what I asked when I called Boyds............They do not come with any bolts or screws....
