Rifle Stocks for Sale – Replacement Stocks, Wood Stocks & Laminated Rifle Stocks

Rifle stock is the handle of your rifle that helps you shoot with better aim and grip. The butt stock or shoulder stock is the part where the firing mechanism and barrel are attached. There are different types of rifle stock like wood rifle stocks, laminated stock, synthetic or metal stocks.

Wood Stocks

Wood Stocks are made of walnut, beech, birch and sometimes even mahogany, mesquite, myrtle or maple. Walnut is used the most and it is more favored because it has the best components required for a stock. Each wood has its own properties, variability, and all this is taken into consideration while making the stock. The grain of the wood is the most important factor as it determines the strength of the wood. The best wood has parallel veins. Proper treatment of wood also affects its properties.

There are many places online where you can look for wood rifle stocks. To get the best deals, you can search for stores that offer rifle stocks for sale. This way, you will know that you are definitely getting a great deal.

Laminated Rifle Stocks

A laminated rifle stock comprises of one or more layers of wood stuck together at high pressure with epoxy. This could be just hardwood or hardwood with walnut or birch. Laminated stock is stronger than wood. Usually, there are only minimal defects in laminated rifle stocks and they are not distorted easily due to heat or humidity. All the same, you can find laminated rifle stocks for sale on the Internet. Going to a store when it is having a sale is always a good idea but you can also try online auctions.

If you are finding it hard to decide if you want a wood rifle stock or a laminated rifle stock, here is a useful comparison.

Appearance: Wood stock gives the rifle a beautiful, classic, and elegant look. Laminated stock is dyed to give as close a finish as possible to wood but it is not as impressive as a wood stock.

Cost: Laminated stocks are usually less expensive and solid walnut stocks are most expensive.

Weight: A laminated wood stock is lighter in weight though sometimes it can be heavier than wood. The heavier the stock, the better the balance and lighter the recoil.

Manufacturing: Wood stocks are easier to make than laminated stocks, such as laminated stocks require high pressure and temperatures to glue them together.

Durability: Laminated stock offers better protection against natural forces like moisture and heat, unlike wood stock rifles that twist and swell with changes in weather. This is because the grains of wood are in different directions and this helps cancel any tendency to warp, making it extremely durable.

Stability: Laminated rifle stock is the most stable and strongest of all stocks.
