Savage 340/ Revelation 225 30-30 Tactical Stock

Anyone have any leads on where i can source a stock for a savage model 340 or a revelation 225?

This gun was given to me and the stocks pretty tore up. Im personally a fan of tactical stocks/composite stocks rather than wood.

Any ideas? Will another model's stock fit maybe?

Being as how that rifle has not been produced for nearly 50 years, and tactical stocks were not really in vogue way back then, you will likely have some difficulty locating an after market stock that is finished and inletted for that action. You could, however, look at one of the models offered by Richards Microfit and get a really neat stock if you were willing to finish it yourself.

by finishing you mean the stock would come pre cut and fit for my specific rifle however the stock is not treated.

I have a suspision that one of these could be made to fit with a little work

They give action bolt hole measurements so you might be able to match something close.

build it your self//

Finding much for the 340 is going to be a challenge, wait time for Richards can be a pain.

But in the mean time....

If the stock is beat up then you have a free hand at building it in to what you want then "painting it"

Take a look over at rimefire central at what this guy did with a plain old marlin stock. scroll down to the pictures

boyds

I got a stock for a 340 from boyds it took a bit more fitting than I expected but when I was finished it looked and fit real nice I also shortened the forearm a little and tappered the bottom of the forearm so it wasn't as thick.
But it is not a tactical stock maybe a can of spray paint and mount a flash light and a swiss army knife?

The stock will come inletted and the barrel channel cut. The action and barrel channel will take some fitting, the rest of the stock will need to be shaped, sanded, and a finish put on.
