Stockys Stocks - Stockeys Stocks is terrible!

review #226911

I recently purchased a new rifle stock from Stockys Stocks.I had it about 3 weeks before my gunsmith was able to fit my rifle in it.

Well they tell you some fitting may be necessary. What they dont tell u is the milling (cutting) of the stock may be so bad your gun may not fit and it takes so much "fitting" that you will have huge gaps in places there shouldnt be. After calling them for a week someone finally calls me back. They tell me even though the stock was wrong from the start its now mine b/c ive had it for ten days.

even though it was in the box the whole time. Right now i have $165.00 conversation piece!!!! They sell it they should back it up. Anyone looking to customize your gun i caution you about these folks.

They are great at advertising other than that.(THEY SUCK!!!!) I hope this saves some people some hard earned money and a hard time.

If Stocky's sends the wrong stock out, of course Stocky's will accept it even after ten days! What you are saying is not correct.

We have used Stocky Stocks to order everything from McMillan stocks to H S Precision...about 10 so far and we wont deal with anyone but Stocky Stock. They are very professional and have given us nothing but wonderful service. The stocks we have ordered have been exactly what we wanted and have been used to complete our $3000 custom rifles. We would recommend them to anyone and we will continue to use them.

I see a lot of satisfied customer comments, and frankly here goes another.... I purchased a stock for my rifle, it came on exactly the day I was quoted, the stock is awsome lookings and feeling. Prior to instalation I read the literature that informed me I had 10 days to return the stock and if I modified it ... it was mine ...period..... I prompty found my reciever was a bit wide and went to fitting...... after several hours (about 6). My reciever still wouldn't fit, then for some odd reason I thought to try my dads rifle (same make) ... fits like it was cast for it ....so... I will be ordering another stock from them for me, because I couldn't bring myself to alter the stock any more, it was to perfect a fit.
My dad gets an early birthday present, and stockys gets 2 happy customers for one order.

I have installed STOCKYS GUN STOCKS on several of my personal rifles, and many more on customer's rifles. Most were B&C,and never the slightest problem with fit or shipping and service. Know your rifle,make/model etc when ordering when you know EXACTLY what you want and need, things will go a lot slicker. I/E, I have a lot of people want a part for a gun with absolutely no idea of model number. IT HELPS TO KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING!!!

After reading through this entire thread, I ordered, albeit with some trepidation, a thumbhole stock for a Remington 788 from Stocky's yesterday. I selected the 3-day UPS option, but the stock was wainting for me when I arrived home from work today. That's not just fast order processing, that's LIGHT SPEED SERVICE.
Now I'm no gunsmith, but I'm certainly no novice when it comes to firearms in general, and I'd like to think that I could spot a meaningful issue with either appearance or fit, and with the Stocky's stock I cannot detect either. The stock is beautiful, and the installation went as smooth as I have ever experienced with any stock that I've ever dealt with, it was truly a drop-in, ten-minute job.
The only minor fault I can find is a bit of extra inletting around the fore & aft area of the floorplate, and this is very minor, and does not adversely effect function at all. We have to keep in mind that Stocky's (or anyone who mass-produces 'drop-in stocks) has to provide tolerances in certain areas to fit a wide range of manufacturing tolerances even across the same models.
To test barrel clearance, I did the trusty 'Dollar Bill' test, and the bill slid quite easily from the front of the forearm all the way back to the recoil lug, meeting ZERO resistance, even when grasped by only one side. The fit in this area seemed VERY close, and I was sure that I'd be relieving the barrel channel, but that wasn't the case. The fit was EXACTLY as it was suposed

I have purchased several stocks, mostly Bell and Carlsons from Stockey's. I chose them solely due to price. I was shipped what I ordered, and it fit. I choose aluminum bedding block stocks because I am not good at altering to fit, and don't want to go there. It used to be that every fiberglass or wood/laminate stock would need some "minor" inletting, which would see me frustrated, and if a fiberglass stock, itchy for days. Now with CNC inletting most of the stocks are drop in. I still think that Stockey's provides a service, in that they sell stocks cheaper than everyone else. Part of the way you do that is by keeping overhead low. The other side of the coin is that there can be no major foul-ups, like a wrong description as happened above, because there aren't enough people there to un-upgefuct things in reasonable timeframe if there is a major malfunction. If Stockeys shipped the wrong stock, they should take it back, even if it has been inletted. But some person has to talk to the customer and make that determination.

I am glad someone likes them. But if u read my post my gunsmith never altered it thats the point of my complaint.I have since dealt with the manufacturer which happens to be KSA not Bell @ Carlson like Stockys told me. The issue is the WSM short actions are listed on their site to fit the short action stock well it wont.After KSA found the issue they corrected it free of charge and were overly helpful. If the chambering doesnt fit Stockys needs to take the WSM off the accecptable short action list!!!!!!

I am a gunsmith in California and have used Stockys numerous times. I have NEVER had a problem with them and quite frankly, I am shocked to hear the complaints. In regards to the first complaint, it sounds like your gunsmith dropped the ball, not stockys. He should have realized immediately that you did not bring him the right stock and should have made you aware before he started milling away. He is the one to blame for the gaps and most likely decreased the integrity of the stock in the process. How can you expect a company to take back a stock that has been altered and is no longer good for anything?? I can already see people responding to thing with claims that I work for stockys. Let me get it out of the way now and say that I do not.

www.StockysStocks.com has an excellent reputation for customer service, which we have worked hard to attain and keep.

Any stock that "doesn't fit" should be returned immediately under our 10 Day Satisfaction Guarantee. Additionally, we work closely with Bell & Carlson to monitor any fitting issues, have a lifetime warranty and they have no record of any contact.

At that point we will be pleased to either help find something that is better suited to the individual rifle, or refund the purchase price on UNALTERED return merchandise.

We sell thousands of stocks and can state with confidence that, IF YOU GET THE RIGHT STOCK, it will fit. That's why we employ a staff of experts that answer emails and phones 12 hours / day. We find it is usually because the customer purchased the wrong stock for some reason (i.e. have an older, obsolete version of a current rifle, like an early Browning bolt rifle attempting to get put into an A-Bolt stock) they have problems.

To take anything that doesn't fit to a gunsmith, have the gunsmith alter it then complain to the retailer / factory about the gunsmith's work is ridiculous.

We made every attempt to resolve this matter with the customer, as reflected by prior postings, but the customer failed to respond. With out more specific information / communication it is difficult to offer any specific solutions.

Based on your comments my guess is you either

I wanted to order a bell and carlson stock for my Browning Abolt......After 3 or 4 phone calls and being bounced around from person to person to a voicemail...nobody ever got back to me. I left 3 maybe 4 messages. I guess you guys dont need the business.

I am looking into the order history right now. I am checking with the returns dept to see what is going on with this. Do you have the tracking number for the return shipment. Once again I do apologize that no one has gotten back to you. I will take care of this for you

I find it hard to believe you are the customer service manager for Stocky's becaue I have been trying to reach someone fro over a week about the stock I ordered over 6 weeks ago. I was sent the wrong stock with no pillars after spending the better part of a week on hold i finally spoke with someone and was send a return label. I tracked it and it was received over 2 weeks ago and I still have not heard anything back, I again I have tried calling as emailing and gotten to return email or call back like the lady that is your "Answering service" said they would do. I am to the point I would just like to have my money back and order a real stock from Boyds. My original order was 33617 and my confermation number was E50513337F. Not that you really care but I am notifying the BBB as well as the attorney general. I know if I ran my business the way you do that i would be out of business!!!!! It would be nice to get a reply but I certainly don;t expect one by the way this has been post on all of my shooting forums as well as my blog.
