    This is my first post. I have only one Sako that I bought in 1979. It is an AIII Finnbear in 270 with a sporter high stock. That what it has on the hang tag. Earlier this month while deer hunting I fell and scratched and gouged the stock. My question will a stock for a L61R work as a emplacement? I was looking at stocks from Boyd's . Would like your opinions on their stocks if anyone has used them. Thanks John 20191205_174823 (1).jpg

    That’s too bad , but you could use an L61 stock or a Boyd’s. Boyd’s are serviceable decent quality stocks, but not much for character. As a laminated product you do get a little more in the way of weather durability and if it get scratched or dinged it’s not that big of deal.

    In my opinion your unfortunate damage is very repairable. A qualified stock person or wood worker would be able to repair the damage and you’d never know it happened. Good luck, hop this helps.

    What he said. I've fixed worse scrapes than that. No need to spend the money for a new stock unless you wanted a laminated stock anyway.
