Default What would you do??????

Most of you know that I have been wrestling with the glass bedding issue for a couple months.
Well I sent to brownells for a new stock and it was damaged. Dings, dents and scratches.
So I returned the stock for a replacement, and this one too was not that great, better, but still not up to my liking.

Would you take the chance of sending the rifle to the factory for a new stock and bedding job at 35 to 50 dollars more plus shipping, and not be sure that stock would be any nicer?

I just got a Hogue rubber covered stock for my 260 rugermk11 I haven't gotten to shoot it yet but it looks and feels great.
It was in perfect condition when I got it,it is pillar bedded and the barrel is free floated.It cost 89.oo shipping and all.

F4YG,
What kind of stock wood or synthetic, and what brand?
If it were me I would get a HS or McMillan synthetic. For a wood stock check out Richards Micro-fit.

F4YG,
If you send it back to Marlin atleast you'll have a factory stock and properly fitted.If it's only 35-50.00 more I would send it to Marlin.I try to keep all my toys original whenever possible. Ruger Redhawk

F4YG,
You actually bought one of those?<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> The clubby stock was the only drawback they had as far as I was concerned. I'm surprised Marlin didn't redesign the stock and keep making them.
