I was just thinking if the laminated forend and grips are better than the rubber ones I have I like the rubber grip but, the forend is too soft I'm trying to get better groups would a set of these work.
Boyds gunstocks has them. www.boydboys.com. They have them in pepper laminate and the regular. For the whole set up it will cost about 96 bucks shipped for a carbine. You get a 25% discount if you order directly from the factory. I have one on my christmas list. Dan
Virgin valley can make you up a set also a little more money but I think there worth it... I don't have a laminated set but I have a set they made for me out of english walnut with ebony caps... Its sweet...
P.S. you can also order them from eabco.com they got the ones that look like the boyds ones but I ain't sure if thats where they came from...
The set forend/grip is from eabco for $69 + shipping.I just may have to get a set they sure look cool on a stainless Encore .I am going to try GB's trick with black tape and see if my groups get any smaller.
I have a VVCG grip and forend which I am very pleased with. I also got myself a "pepper" laminate stock from eabco for Christmas last year. I can't say for sure if it is a Boyd stock or not, but it arrived in a box with a Boyd logo printed on it. I personally did not care for the rubber grip that came with my frame. My first barrel was a 308 and the grip seemed to twist in my hand when I would fire the gun. The grip I ordered form VVCG feels like it was made to fit my hand, wait a minute, it was made to fit my hand . The finish on my VVCG pieces is very nice, yet the price is high. I have been thinking about ordering a laminated carbine forend from eabco for Christmas this year.
