    I found one no pics of gun out of stock {pics of every think else look good tho}i was wondering if any of you Bison owners have 1 or 2 recoil lugs?Also says wood painted stock but it looks to me like a B&C stock.I don't see White's up here in the Great White North that often so i buy um when i can.
    Yes i have White eye tess {little DBW lingo} i miss U.C's posts

    Bisons have one lug as I remember. Mine had a myrtle stock. Great shooters!

    My guess is it will be a Myrtle wood stock. I had one in a .540. Excellent gun. Sold it in a downsizing and wish I still had it.

    I reinforced the pistol grip of the stock with an oak dowel. I posted the entire job on here somewhere. It's probably good insurance as they've been known to split.

    Bummer, so sorry to hear that happened to your rifle. My Bison has the composite stock, I don't think too many of them did. I'm pretty sure if you take your sweet time gluing it back together with the dowels it will be as strong or stronger than it ever was.

    What Art said,,,,but use a comparable piece of "all-thread" instead of a wooden dowel. Much stronger and the threads allow the glue to grip better.
