    Anybody know who makes replacement stocks for Rem 788 (mine is short action). Thinking a laminated stock...if possible?
    Thanks in advance.

    Great American Gunstock Company.
    You will need to call them to obtain actual price but they will provide anything you may want from 80% finished to complete with all fittings.HTH

    Some people might have had good luck with Great American Gunstock, but others have had problems.

    This is from another forum:

    I have purchased at least 15 semi completed 80% stocks from Great American and returned exactly one for replacement which was done in short order and to my satisfaction.
    I have not had the problems that individual did but then again I do all the fitting and metal work myself.

    Frankly, if you are going to have your gunsmith do any fitting it behooves me why he would order a stock finished in Tung oil with a grip cap fitted.
    The whole story sounds like somebodies internet fantasy.

    Maybe it is someone's fantasy, but there were more posts from other people who also had problems. I'm just giving T-mac some advice to be cautious and get everything in written text.
