    I am sure that there will be Many comments about your Question and or my Reply.
    No such thing as Low Cost Custom Stock Sets...made to Fit.
    As for Pricing, for an XT.....About the Cost of a XT. Shoot Well..Shoot Often, Bart

    By the time one picks out the wood blank and has it fitted and finished you damn sure could knock the hell out of 4-5000 dollars depending on the type of wood.

    I'd figure $2500 as a starting point and go up from there.

    If you've got an XT, get a PFS, it will do everything fit wise that a custom stock will do, if fit is the problem. If you want fit and looks, yo have to go for a custom stock-- I wouldn't put that much money into an XT.

    Once you actually do a custom fitted stock, you will see just how much time and work goes into the whole process. Its really fairly inexpensive for quality work given everything necessary to turn out a finished product. The "other costs" can amount to quite a bit - if you have to travel, hotel, food, etc. - not to mention your wife reminding you of what you spent.

    I think that we are the only company with published prices. An XT is a tange style receiver and the cost for fitting and labor to produce stock and forend is $ 2,400.00. That also includes deluxe finish, checkering, 4-way adjustable comb, and recoil pad then add the wood cost to the $ 2,400.00. If you are looking for inexpensive wood you can look at our other web site www.customwoodblanks.com We have a good selection of lower dollar wood that still hase very attractive grain. Thank you,

    trapman99 , You will need custom if you require lots of offset. Custom is nice but if you are of average build and right handed ,you probably don't really need one . I would get a pre-made stock as Benchrest advised. Don't bugger up the factory stock. For example, at the Grand, Wenig will have barrels full of rough, inletted stocks for around $200. Shouldn't have a problem finding one for an XT. If you are a left handed giraffe, see Dennis.
