    XL7's with laminated stocks

    Just bought a XL7 in 30-06 with a laminated stock and was amazed at it's weight. Marlin's 2010 catalog states that the weight is 6.5 pounds, but believe me it's more like 7.5 or 7.75 pounds. I think I will stick with Boyd's laminated stocks from now on. I know that extra weight on a 30-06 is appreciated when shooting from the bench or prone to absorb more recoil, but for carrying and tree stand use, a lighter rifle is the preference. By the time I get a scope and rings on this rifle it wil most likely be in the 8+ pounds area. I probably will put a Harris bipod on it too so now I'm approaching 10 pounds. Will have to get a wheelbarrow to get it around.

    the 6.5 lbs is rated for the tupperware stocks. those ones ARE very light. i would gladly tote a peice of walnut around if i could have afforded it. that is a nice hunk of wood. id be glad to trade you your wood for my tupperware!

    The Marlin catalog also states that their XL7L laminated stock model is 6.5 pounds. They had better revise their catalog data and while they are at it, include the stainless steel models that they omitted

    valid complaint but its in remingtons hands and so it seems they dont care for any other production lines other than their own originals.

    Don't know yet about the pillars as I haven't removed the action from the stock as yet. I plan on doing this maybe this weekend to adjust the trigger pull down a bit, so I'll let you know when I find out.

    luvalever-was not trying to "one up" you-i like my camo stocks but that laminate sure is nice looking-the extra weight would be welcome on my 30-06-it sure is light and bucks pretty good with the tupperware stock-whsk

    Re: XL7's with laminated stocks

    Sorry fellas- I'm going to keep this laminated stock as it is a beautiful piece of wood even though it's heavy. I'm glad it's on a 30-06 though because it will absorb a lot of the recoil.
