Ive been looking EVERYWHERE for a quality wood thumbhole stock, the quality needing to be on par with manners or mcmillian. (millers has the MCS-T5 and mcmillian has the lazzeroni but theyre both from synthetic materials)..

This would be for a Rem 700 btw, there must be one decent one out there...

Any advice?

I went the Boyds route as well. Not sure how they stack up with the two you mentioned but it's been working for me thus far.

Try Bill Shehane at http://www.scopeusout.com/ I have used his Lee Six modified thumbhole for several years and it is very comfortable. I believe Bill was the first distributor for Nightforce scopes and he makes a boatload of longrange varmint, 1,000 yard and BR stocks.

Re: Any high quality wood thumbhole stocks?

Another plug for Joel Russo , never used his thumb holes but have used several of his A-5L stocks , I realy like the laminated version of the A-5 cause you can shape it to better fit your needs and hands. I have kinda big paws so i like trimming the grip to fit like on the second rifle here

I went Boyd's. Inexpensive, but after Mark's bedding job, it has served me well.

Re: Any high quality wood thumbhole stocks?

You would have to ask Joel on the caliber. It was not my rifle. He is building my new stick that I posted photos of awhile back.

Manners MCS-T2 clone /w Sitman adjustable check piece hardware and SS pillars. I laminated quarter sawn Bubinga in the center and outer pieces with thin strips of figured Anigre sandwiched in between. It will be ready sooner than my barreled action will be unfortunately.

Here are some photos as it was just coming out of the CNC. It still has to have the adjustable check piece cut and Sitman hardware installed.
