RE: Sako synthetic stocks ?'s
zac76156 FYI synthetic stocks(factory issue) from every manufacturer have hollow foreends and hollow butts. Only exception I have seen is the "Canoe Paddle" Ruger 77 which has a hollow foreend and the dished out butt and various guns that have HS precision stocks..remington senderos the the rest use Belland CArlson(most weatherbys,reminton Ti). I am basing this on owning various and sundry Remington,Winchester,Ruger,Weatherby,Sako and a Sigarms SHR970. Now the Sako comes with a Hogue stock it doesn't need to be pillar bedded it will work just fine as they are free floated from the factory. Design wise it may be the best of the regular synthetic stocks out there it is so popular as a matter of fact that Mcmillan actually inlets the same design for Remington Actions. The Rubber inserts on the grip and foreend help the grip in slick conditions. The Mcmillan is a dead copy of it but of course the it has no hollow cavity in the foreend..the rear butt is filled with foam. Both are very nice stocks and the factory stock doesn't need to be replaced to optimize accuracy. It would be aesthetics only. Good Luck
