Best place to shop for stocks

Have a savage axis xp 223 I use for varmint. This is a great gun and I want to put a pistol grip style stock on. Anyone have good places to shop for one?

+1 on Boyds, especially for that gun. If you're patient and wait for a sale, you can get your gun in a decent stock for under $150. Anywhere else, and you'll likely spend almost as much as the gun itself.

Joel Russo for a Savage Axis?

By pistol grip, do you mean an A-5 styled stock? That would be the Boyd's Pro Varmint. That is going to add a bit of weight and, I believe, be contoured for a heavy barrel. If you have the regular Axis, I'm not sure it is the best choice.

I donít have the heavy barrel. But Iím not sure by what you mean on A-5 style. Just looking for one with a thumb whole or a steeper angle where your trigger hand is.

Boyds should be able to take care of you for a thumbhole stock. A word of caution, though, is that thumbholes usually only allow firing the gun from one side. I don't like to limit myself to that and will not own a thumbhole stock for that reason. Sometimes one has to take the shot from the off side or take no shot at all.

Good point! I saw a few Jersey guys with thumbhole stocks on their Savage 220s and thought about one for mine. Then it dawned on me that I could not shoot it left handed if the need arose.
