Well ordered a Boyds At-One stock for my Ruger American Rimfire. Stock came very quickly which is a plus and the stock itself looks amazing. I like it a lot and the cheek piece and the adjustable comb is great too.
Now the bad.... the Ruger has 2 V blocks that you remove from the factory stock. The back one is the extractor, mag release, and bedding block all in one. I put them in the Boyds stock and the barreled action just kind of rocked back and forth and wouldn't sit into place like it should. I finally got it semi solid and I tried to screw in the action screws. Neither would even come close to touching the barreled action more less actually catch a thread. I pull the barreled action off and put the screw through just the bedding block to see how much I have to work with. It doesn't even clear the top of the bedding block. So I started my google foo and found some people saying you needed longer action screws. So I go to lowes and Home Depot only to find they don't carry specialty screws like these. Tried a local gun shop and they don't carry them either.
So I call Boyds only to have a message taken and promised a call back which I haven't received.
Knowing that sometimes it could just be me doing [censored] wrong I take another crack at it. Again same thing... FML. So I get the old stock and put everything back together and fits like a glove perfectly. Take it all back down and put the front bedding black in and notice it sits perfectly flush with the milling of the stock. However the rear bedding block does not sit flush it sits about 1/8th of an inch high. It can't go any lower in the stock since the grooves that are milled into the side of the stock only go down so far. So I take out the rear bedding block and put the barreled action in and bam everything fits perfectly and the front action screw is a perfect fit.
Got an email into Boyds with pictures to see what they're going to do about it. I'm not a happy camper about it, but as long as they make it right I really love the stock overall.
First 2 pics shows how the screw doesn't even clear the bedding block. The last one is a void that was machined out which shouldn't have been.
