Boyd stock action screw

Postby sqezer » Fri Jan 05, 2018 7:29 pm

I have bought several Boyd Knight Stocks and the last few I have had issues with the grommet that the action screw secures the stock to the action. I'm thinking about replacing the grommet with a pillar and bedding the pillar in the stock. It really sucks to pay such a HIGH PRICE for a stock and have such a LOW QUALITY grommet to hold everything together. Any thoughts???????

Couldn't hurt anything with bedded pillars. Might even help the accuracy and maintaining zero. I take it your talking about a full one piece stock.

Yes, the last few stocks I have gotten I've had to replace the grommet in the stock.

I have done two stocks one knights and one Boyd stock witch or both Boyds with pillars and they hold zero very well and bedded just the lug area as well.

You're right... those plastic grommets gotta go...Aluminum pillars and bedding is what I do on all my Boyds stocks....I've done 8 and in the process of two more.
