Is there a market for a slightly used stock from an Extreme Stainless M70? I'm kicking around customizing my .300WM for long range target and mid range elk. Brake, perhaps a magazine mod, maybe a custom stock.

I've not been able to find anyone selling their B&C stock. Is this something people are buying?

If it was a stock for a wsm-length action, I'd jump at it.

Not sure if this is what your looking for but I have a B&C stock for sale. It’s for a heavy barrel. It will not let me attach the photo for some reason.

Sounds like both of these guys are trying to sell their Bell and Carlson stocks from Model 70 Extreme Weather Rifles. I think they should KEEP their Bell & Carlson stocks. They are some of the best synthetic stocks I have ever used. Boyd’s Black Laminate stocks are some of the best stocks of any kind we ever tested. Second were often heated treated Maple stocks. Synthetics are the least favored stocks for many uses. They often are homely and do not take real high heat or cold. The Bell and Carlson stocks though are very, very tough and stable. Not good to sell. If you have one hang on to it! If I had a real high end Tiger Maple Stock custom built a good back uo for harsh use where the rifle might get tossed around? Bell and Carlson!!

I saw my old post brought back to life, so I thought I would give an update. First off, my OP was unclear. I was looking to sell the OEM stock, not buy. All that said, I sold it on Armslist for $75. I put a McMillan A3-5 Graphite on the rifle.
