Remington Model 788

My father has a Remington Model 788 in .308 cal he bought new years ago. When I was 12 he had cut the stock down to fit me for hunting. Now that I am full size he would like to use the rifle again but we are having trouble finding a replacement stock. I would also like to find a replacement magazine since we lost the original. Can anyone tell me where I can find these items.

Thanks

If Bob doesn't have it I bet he knows where he can get it.

There is an outfit making 788 aftermarket mags... just not for .222 and .223!

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.

Geoman458, is that 6mm magazine you bought a factory one? I've never been able to find a 6mm mag for one. You can order one from Remington in any caliber but 6mm. At least that's the way it used to be.
