Got a new Boyd's Stock set while they were on sale for $75. They are FAT! Lots of wood removal required to get it down to G.I. contour. The walnut is straight grained and good looking. Receiver fits snug. Handguards matched well.Problem with poor inletting. Trigger guard wouldn't lock down. After some inletting work everything O.K. I wouldn't have gotten a new stock set, but mine was pretty beat up and the receiver fit was loose and sloppy. New stock looks, feels great. Stain duplicates original G.I. reddish brown color & finished with hand-rubbed BLO. If you get a Boyd's stock, be prepared for some major wood removal.
