Parker Hale 7mm Remington Magnum

I have a Parker Hale in 7mm Remington Mag. I cant stand the stock. I am not familiar with Mauser's as I am with other rifle actions. If I go to Stocky's or Brownells to change out the stock, which stock do I ask for? This is a 98 Mauser ? Large ring?

I just need to know what to tell them to order the correct stock. Thanks guys in advance. Everyone has been so helpful with the odd questions I do ask (this one is less of my odd variety).

THANKS!!

I wish I could help. I have the same rifle in different calibers, but I don't know the answer either.

Your P-H was built on a Large Ring Mauser 98 commercial- style action.

Yep, a commercial 98 should get you the correct stock. What is the problem with the old stock?

The stock has honest wear. But for some reason I can not stand white line spacers and the squared off forend that was so popular back in the 80s early 90s. Not assuming the rifle is from that vintage, it reminds me of so. I would like to put it in a nice walnut stock or a black weatherproof synthetic. Make my 7mm Mag a tough long range mountain rig.

save money improve hunting performance

One option would be to glass bed the action and free float the barrel if this hasn't been done already. Then paint it ugly like a synthetic. Little cost great performance. I'd paint the whole D thing barrel, action (except the bolt, trigger, safety etc.)

FWIW - The rifle already has a nice walnut stock, the white line spacers can be removed, and the squared-off forend rounded.

The "wear" will disappear, after you deal with the spacers & forend shape, when the stock's refinished.

IMO, it's an excellent opportunity to get your feet wet, by reworking & refinishing your own stock.

Whaddya got to lose, besides a little elbow grease ?

I was going to suggest the same thing, a little reshaping of the forend and removing the white line spacers from the pistol grip and recoil pad. Refinish the stock and you're good as new again.

One more for removing the spacers, reforming the tip and refinishing the whole thing.

Well if you could stand a laminate stock boyd's can cover it and has info to help with fit along with several stock designs. They tend to make a lot of stocks of others too. Wood and laminate. I used on on my main hunter for close to 17 years now.

I vote for buying a synthetic and setting the original aside unmolested. Someday, someone might prefer it because that's how it came from the factory.
