    Savage Model 25 stock options?

    I have the savage model 25 .223 in thumbhole stock and Im looking at getting a completely new stock for it in just standerd form but im also thinking of rebarreling it to a .243. But anyhow I just want a plain stock I can sand down and paint myself but the problem is I keep trying to find a stock and im getting no where! Anyone have any ideas where I could find an unfinished non laminated stock for it? I just want something simple for like a hundred bucks I can use, any help guys?

    You wont be able to re-barrel it to 243 think .204 or .222 its like a oversized .22 the barrel may also be pinned further complicating things.
    As for stocks since they haven't been around that long you are probably going to be disappointed best bet would be a laminated varmint type blank similar to what it already has and have a smith inlet it for you but why bother.
    You could try to contact savage and ask they will sell you one or ask who supplies them.

    Depending on the model, why can he not rebarrel it?

    If its a 10 or 110 series, then they are both short action rounds, no?

    New barrel, new bolt head in .473" and he is off to the races AFAIK.

    As for making it fit another stock, if it is not the newer Savage with the differently spaced action screw holes and centerfeed magazine, I would say no, or if you can, it is not worth the work. Lots of companies make Savage stocks.

    What model of rifle is it, Hill55?

    It a completely different species than the 10 110 series.

    http://www.shootingtimes.com/longgun...805/index.html

    Reading this confirms the pinned barrel.

    As for stocks a wooden sporter stock off another rifle could be customized to fit I have seen something similar done reasonably well it involves a bit of work and the end result will not look as good as what it has now.
    Why not just bed it and call it a day.

    Almost certainly. They're very easy to work with and will probably send you one right away.
