A few years ago a good friend of mine gave me an older pre-64 .32 special for deer hunting. I hunted with it several times, but I am just not that accurate with that rifle because the stock is somewhat small and my cheek doesn't rest on it very well. He used a 30-30 with a larger stock (maybe even had a cheek pad) that I found fit me much better.
My good friend was killed in a mining accident this week, and I very much want to hunt with the rifle this year. I'd sure like to find a replacement stock that will work a little better, but I'm no gunsmith and I'm not sure where to start.
I'd like to know a few things before ordering a new stock:
-What are the names of 'larger' stocks that have more substance and would be easier to rest my cheek on?
-Are there cheek-pad style stocks for this rifle?
-Who sells these kinds of stocks?
-How big a job is this and can a newbie replace a stock very easily?
Can anybody point me in the right direction?
