go to 24 hour campfire and post a wtb ad in the classifieds. those guys build a lot of custom sticks (most are remington 700 based) and most of the time the factory stocks are put up for sale or given away. i've picked up a half dozen or so remington wood stocks from over there.

when you get the fat barrel, get a deep well socket and some 60 grit sandpaper and open up the barrel channel to accept the heavier profile barrel.

Consider www.boydsgunstocks.com They sell mostly laminated stocks, but many are classy looking and not the wild colors you do not want

The boyds stocks are cool but im looking for one with a heavy barrel channel I remember a forum I saw way back about a stock maker that does a wood copy of the original m40 not the m40a1... Cant seem to find it though...

watch ebay. there is usually a couple of take offs on there most of the time. just put it in your saved searches, and they will e-mail you everytime one is listed. they are USUALLY quite reasonable.

So pretty much nothing haha... You would think someone made some type of replica of the m40 stock or a wood replica of the m40a1 stock atleast.
