Some of you guys may hate the thought but, I was wondering if there is a wooden Monte Carlo type stock  for the #1 Mark 3* available in Canada? This one is kind of rough and has already been sporsterized.   I would like to update it.  I don't care much for the looks of the plastic/composite stocks.

You will find that most of us won't badmouth anyone wanting to keep an already-sported rifle in service. Now, the story would change a bit if you were going to take a hacksaw to all original wood Shocked

 
To help with your questions though, also check on Gunbroker.com. I have seen some nice used wood Monte Carlo style stocks on there in the past. Just another avenue to look at.

Boyds makes very nice stocks for the #1 MkIII which require very little relief work.

Well I went to the show in Saskatoon and found a nice matched 2 piece Walnut set from one of the stock makers.   Thanks for the info.  Any tips on finishing and bedding.

Hi guys. I got the stock front wittled down and I bedded it with JB Weld using liquid wrench lithium grease as a release agent. It worked quite well. I just took the stock off after setting clamped overnight and it came apart quite easily by with just a firm tug.
