    Default WTS: Skeletonized Stocks (now with free shipping)

    I didn't really care for any of the other "modular" type stocks that are on the market, so I made my own. I've been quite pleased with their performance, so I'm offering them for sale now:

    I'm calling the basic model the Wolverine... It fits an Ace type receiver block or folding mechanism, has a built-in sling mounting point, and includes an AR slip on rubber butt pad:



    Price with the standard butt pad is $105 each plus flat rate shipping. Add $35 for a Limbsaver recoil pad. These are available in two different lengths (check my website for more details), and include mounting hardware.

    My second model, the Werewolf, is a further development of my basic stock, that includes an adjustable kydex cheek rest for use with an optical sight:



    It's available in the same lengths as the Wolverine. The cheek rest adjusts quickly using a pair of low profile thumb nuts (which can be reversed to the other side). When installed on an AK with an Ace folding mechanism, it is narrow enough to fold flat to the left side (you have to use a top mounted optic rail like the TWS or Krebs):



    The Werewolf is priced at $150 each with the standard butt pad, plus flat rate shipping. Add $35 to substitute a Limbsaver recoil pad. For a sling mount, either use one of the folding mechanisms that provides for a sling attachment, or I can weld on a standard QD type attachment point for another $10, as pictured on my .308 Saiga above.

    Both stocks are constructed from 4130N aircraft tubing and sheet, TIG welded in a hard jig to ensure correct alignment. Finish is a low-gloss black powder coat. Unfortunately due to the cost of shipping hazmat materials to Alaska, this is the only finish I can offer at this time. At special request if I have any unfinished units in stock, I can ship it in bare steel (same price) if you want to have it finished to match your firearm, so at least you or your refinisher won't have to remove the powder coating. Made by hand in the USA, and indelibly marked for your 922r compliance.

    For more details, or to ask a question, feel free to PM me, post here, send email to info@boomsticksforever.com, or visit my website at Boomsticks Forever.

    Not sure why, but I can't see the pics. I just get a big red X.

    I can see them too

    Nice design and I like the use of the cheek rest too.

    That's interesting. The pictures should be sourced directly from my website. Did you try the website?

    Thanks for the comments. I don't expect that I'll be much of a threat to the bigger manufacturers, but for somebody who wants something a bit out of the ordinary, I think I provide that. Nobody else makes a stock out of chrome-moly that I'm aware of; I doubt anybody else would, because of the labor involved. And while there are other modular stocks with a cheek rest option, most of them either aren't adjustable, or require tools to adjust. With mine, if the scope breaks, to get on the irons, all you have to do is twist each of the thumb nuts a little, and slap the rest down with the palm of your hand.

    I'm a better welder than I am a photographer, but I thought I would share this picture of one I welded up tonight, before throwing it in the blast cabinet:



    This is the shorter version of the basic Wolverine stock, showing the butt plate without the spacer or slip-on recoil pad installed. Weld beads are left alone, except for the sling mount tube, which I smooth to prevent any chafing of the sling.

    The finish I use is a flat black, but some people may want something different, in order to match their rifle. Unfortunately due to the difficulty of getting hazmat shipped to Alaska I can't accommodate special finishing requests. But what I can do, is ship you a stock in this condition, along with the recoil pad and the spacer which is glued on after finishing (the spacer just fills the extra space in the slip on pad, which is meant for a 1/4" thick AR stock). That way, you or your builder can finish the stock to match your rifle, without having to strip off the original finish. I don't offer a discount for this, since I don't really want people requesting it to save money and then rattle canning one of my stocks, but it is an option if you want something other than black.
