Great read, thanks all.
ive got a mk2 tx200 in a standard stock the only tunning if you can call it tunning is one of the gamo blue seals. it shoots well but the stock dont fit me right ive got a palm shelf and a anshultz butt hook on it to try and get it there but its not right. so what stocks can you lot recomend.
I've started converting a standard tx stock into something more for HFT. Done the forend and pistol grip. Starting on the butt pad and cheek piece next week which will be adjustable in every direction I can manage.
I'll be putting all details and pictures on the blog in due course.
Will never be as nicely finished as a proper custom stock but current cost is £7 so pros and cons
What are peoples thoughts on bedding the action into the stock?
I made my own stock for a 97K awhile ago, and I bedded it in with fibreglass filler. It was surprising how imperfect my inletting was, but the result was good. It felt like the action and stock were one. I have made other stocks since, and some just didn't feel good, so appreciate that the fit to the shooter is vital.
Love my CS 1000 plank.
Remove and refit the action regularly, very rare I touch my turrets!
The closest I've come to a fitted stock is using a standard right handed stock, but shooting it left handed. Funny thing is, it works just as well as a true lefty stock, but it's not as comfortable.
