G'day

As above I am wondering if anyone has put an aftermarket recoil pad on a Boyd's thumbhole stock? If so what one?

My research indicates a limbsaver 10301 will fit with very minor mods, and the limbsaver 10111 fits on the prairie hunter style stock. Does anyone know if both stocks have the same recoil pad shape? If so I can use the 10111 if I can find one.

Thanks
Chappo

Vartarg, these are my measurements:

OAL: 125
Distance from top to upper screw hole: 19
Distance from top to lower screw hole: 97
Distance between screws: 77
Width at top hole: 37
Width at bottom hole: 33
Width approximately halfway between the two holes: 41

All in millimetres.

If you need any other measurements let me know?

Cheers
Mitch

www.boydsgunstocks.com/ProductDetail/C50000

Why not contact Boyd's themselves & they could give you the answer!

I contacted Boyd's and they said they only have a grind to fit they will sell me.

I have found the template for limbsaver and the model 10111 appears it will fit near on perfectly. I just have to find that model here in aus.

Nice work mitch, sounds like you have it covered then!

I have 2 Boyds, one is for my .270 which can give me a bit of grief off the bench.

Let us know what you end up doing if you can for future reference ;)

I fitted a limbsaver to my Boyd's stock, not a thumbhole, but I downloaded the templates of their pads from here:

Limbsaver grind to fit

Sorry can't tell you how it went cos the gunshop stuffed up and sent me a non-grind to fit model which I modified my stock to fit, but youtube has heaps of info on how to grind to fit. But I can tell you this: they do a fantastic job at controlling recoil, tamed my 300WSM right down, and regardless of the amount of stuffing around it will be worth it. Limbsaver have a great product.

If I knew I was gonna live this long I would've taken better care of myself

Hmmm, from memory a mate of mine went through this a couple of years ago with his Boyds thumbhole and a Tikka Limbsaver was so close he hardly had to do any touch-ups.....
