View Full Version : Stocks - Wood or Synthetic?

01-02-2013, 02:26 PM
I'm curious as to what people prefer and perhaps why. Me, I guess I'm a bit of an old school type - much prefer the wood. Anyone else?

1st choice Laminate...because I look Fuddticool with it hunting!
And then it depends....wood as you say is classier (much, much classier), but for a beater I'd go synthetic/stainless; it's too wet around here.
I guess that makes me option three:)

I prefer nicely figured wood. Modern synthetics are also fine - I'm partial to the fiberglass/composite types myself.

I put my vote in for synthetic, but I like both, just for different firearms! I love wood on milsurps, but on anything more modern I prefer the look/feel of synthetic. The only exception to that might be a nice O/U or SxS!

I voted wood, and prefer it in most scenarios. I love the look of nicely figured wood and the feel of wood but I hate when I scratch, ding or gouge it.

Usually wood.

Depends on the gun.

Something about wood and steel that looks so nice but for pratical "i.e. hunting" I prefer synthetic.

I voted, "as long as it works." I apreciate both on different levels. Love my full wood P14, and my synthetic stocked Savage Axis, equally. I have two Lee Enfields, one with an ATI stock, the other with sporterized wood, both of those make me smile also.

i appreciate a nice wood stock, but when it comes down to a rifle that will see use and abuse, i'll go with synthetic every day

Wood only on my Levers, and synthetic for all other rifles.

Wood on everything but my shorty shotgun I carry in the bush.
