Boyds' Hardwood Gunstocks

Boyds Hardwood Stocks Featherweight Thumbhole Series

Boyds Hardwood Stocks Featherweight Thumbhole Series Pepper Laminated Finish

The FT's design is a synthesis of design elements requested by customers for a thumbhole design.

With a large rollover cheek piece for scope usage and a straight comb design to minimize cheek slap when shooting, the hand conforming thumbhole allows for increased accuracy while distributing the recoil among the palm and shoulder, thus minimizing muzzle jump and felt recoil.

The forend is proportioned to nicely complement barrels from 21 inches to 25 inches in length and will accommodate barreled actions with standard sporter contour barrels. Larger barrels up to a tapered varmint design can be inlet in these stocks. The forend also has side vents that permit the free-floating barrel to cool efficiently for those long days at the range.

The FT's are available in a wide range of inlettings to accommodate most barreled actions. It must be noted that due to the variations among models and tolerances that factories may or may not routinely adhere to, some minor fitting may be required, even on fully finished drop-in parts, to achieve that perfect fit to your action.
