    If you are looking for wood try http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/

    I ordered a laminate for my Marlin XL-7 and was very happy with it.

        What contour barrel and what purpose?

        I have 3 Model 70s currently and they are all wearing McMillan handles. I've a Supergrade for my .416, a Hunter's Edge for a Featherweight contour and a Edge fill HTG for a carbon wrap barrel. Each has their place, though for a general purpose #2-3 contour I'd almost certainly use the McMillan Hunter style stock in standard fill with a gelcoat finish. I've used other synthetic stocks, but I've found McMillan is easily the best for lots of reasons. I'll try to post some pics in a bit.

          Here is an interesting link on restocking Model 70's. Specifically, the Black Shadow which came with the FWT bbl contour I believe. May not match with what you are doing exactly, but might be a resource for figuring out which bottom metal and floorplate you have/need for the type of stocks available. I am looking to do just that with a Black Shadow that I recently picked up. Nice shooting rifle, but the stock is not growing on me and I dont care for the blind magazine.

          Heres a link to Stocky stocks, there is a pull down menu thing on there that will give you the different options they have available:

                I'd have a hard time undoing the Hunter's Edge on my FWT contour. Some think the comb is a bit low, but with 42mm and smaller scopes it's a non-issue. I'd have to check but my LA Model 70 FWT in 6.5x55 with a 6x42 Leupold in Talley LW rings (extra low, I think) and the Hunter's Edge stock weighs a few ounces shy of 7 pounds. 6 pounds 12 ounces jumps to mind, but I could be mistaken. You could go with the McMillan Hunter (standard fill-gelcoat) style stock for another 8-10 ounces for the different ergonomics. I've the Hunter Style on a Sako action and love it, but the Hunter's Edge is a really nice combination with the FWT barrel. McMillan has a little wait right now. I've had a stock on order since early December, but there is a reason that there is such a wait IMO and it's worth every minute......................

                  Are you just lookig for a factory replacement that's not cut down? I believe I remember you saying you cut the original stock on that rifle, you can check out CDNN and get a factory synthetic for it. They also sell factory wood stocks on there too. That stainless 243 with a fwt wood stock on it would be a really good looking rifle.

                  Oooorrrr you could trade me your stainless one, for my brand new blued one.....

                    Yes, I shortened the LOP and did a temporary recoil pad. I was wanting a camo composite stock with the color in the stock as opposed to "on" the stock. At this point the cost of a McMillian is not justifiable, so it looks like the existing stock will get a rattle can paint job.

                        I have a Basners synthetic stock with a Confederate Grey finish on my .338 Mod. 70 "Classic Stainless. It is light weight compared to many synthetic stocks. It also has no checkering if that is an issue. I really like it, especially the way they contoured the forearm and they will put about any length of pull and recoil pad on it. You can order them as a finished stock or a do it your self stock. Is that McMillan Edge stock the one D'Arcy Echols designed? Heard good things about it also.
