    I have never seen & am not aware of any aftermarket stocks for the L691 action. This model was only made from 1992 to 1996, so any parts are extremely scarce. You would do better to sell them & put the money toward another rifle. Even if you found a used factory stock the barrel channel won't match your aftermarket barrels. Custom rifles are a money pit in the best of circumstances (I know because I have built several) & to build one on such an obscure action would amplify that expense. A custom stock alone for that action would easily exceed $1000!

    Thanks for the information ill keep that in mind.
    I did find a composite mfg. That had one for 600. And a few incomplete wood (unfinished) for about the same cost. any idea as to value for the 2 actions? Thanks

    I don't know of any sales of that action to use as a guide for valuation, but I don't think they would fly of the shelves if listed for the reasons I mentioned. Never know about scarce stuff & how the market treats them though. A composite for $600 would allow you to build a decent hunting rifle. Not sure how your barrel will fit the channel. Finishing & checkering a wood stock will easily take it over $1000. Good luck.
