Where can I get a Marlin 917vrx .17hmr stock cheap?

I have a Marlin 917VRX, but it is the same rifle as the Marlin XT-17v. Anyone know where I can get a woods stock? Just looking for something other than the synthetic..feels cheap but I love the action and trigger on that gun. Shoots great.

You might check with Boyd's they sell quite a few stocks at reasonable prices. Good luck!

Nice to see another Floridian in here!!

Boyd's Riflestocks is turning into my Go-To home for wood stocks for Marlins.
They DO require some final fit & finishing, so be prepared. WATCH THEIR VIDS on the subject...highly important.
While most of 'em are more or less drop-in...Each rifle is slightly different, as is each stock...
so be prepared to Bed or Pillar Bed the action to the stock for best results!!

I've never had a bedded rifle give me any issues that weren't ammo-related...takes a lot of guesswork out of the equation!!

Note that your 917 is of the 900-series, so the 800/900/& XT22 stocks all fit.
also the old 782 .22WMR stocks will fit also...
the T-900 trigger system was a little chunky compared to the 782/882, so expect a little inletting if going backwards compatable...
Numrich has a small selection of OEM stocks and a few OEM laminates...

haha! Im from Southwest florida. Good to know. I'll have to check the out. I am pretty good at wood working and what not so that shouldnt be a problem. If I had the money/time I would just go find some oak or mahogany and just make one myself haha. appreciate the info!

I just put a Boyds nutmeg laminate stock on my Marlin XL7. I got the Prairie Hunter model. It's a very nice stock for the money - you won't be disappointed. After I glass-bedded it, it shoots tighter groups than it ever has.
