New stock for my Mosin.

Postby ShootnMathews » Tue Aug 09, 2016 6:39 pm

I have never liked the "fit" of the ATI stock on my Mosin. I liked the look of it and it has always shot well, but I couldn't help wondering it it would shoot better bedded up in a better fitting stock. I'm a big fan of the McMillan stocks but there's no way I can afford one. So, I decided to try one of the Boyds ProVarmint stocks which is basically a McMillan A5 with a few slight changes. I ordered it to fit my military barrel and with a timney trigger Inlet. I also decided to go for the lim savers pad upgrade. I placed my order and was surprised to see it shipped like 2 days later.

First impressions of my stock after opening the box. I like it ! It has a great fit and feel to it. I love the angle of the grip and how it fits the hand. The forearm is perfect too in my opinion. It's wide enough and flat enough to shoot off sandbags well. Yet at the same time it's narrow enough to get a good handhold on the finger grooves in the forearm. For my needs and wants, there is only one thing that I would ever change about this stock, and that is the material. If it were composite though it would cost as much as the McMillan. Overall I give it a rating of 4.5 out of 5.

It took a lot of work finishing the inlet to fit my rifle. I honestly expected that because it took a lot of work to fit her in the ATI stock also. I think this rifle, a 42 Izzy is just a little fat. I do have her fitting pretty well now. I'm going to pillar bed it and then pretty her up with some paint.

Here is a pic of her in the ATI stock and then in the ProVarmint.

How does the "feel" of the ProVarmint compare to the A5? They look very similar.

The A5 has a wider front part. The part you put your hand on is more of a pistol grip. I would take pictures but Thomas still has it. I compared them a lot when I got the stock. For the price the byods USA great stock. No A5 but good for what it is. It's over all bigger too. When Thomas finishes it I'll be posting pictures like crazy on here.

I've got her fitted up pretty well. I'll try to bed her this weekend. And maybe paint it

When it comes to bedding I'm always afraid of bonding it all together so I do it in small steps. Last night I epoxied in the recoil lug pillar. Today I'll fill out the bedding in a that area. Then do the tang pillar. Hopefully Sunday I can burn some powder through her.
