Hello,I recently gained a Sears model 53 30-06 rifle. I did some research and found the end it was made by Winchester and also basically a Winchester version 70.Everything I have actually learned so far is the it is fairly a an excellent gun, however, I"m no a fan of hardwood stocks and this total in details is very heavy. Ns would favor to replace the hardwood stock with a synthetic one. Walk anyone know if a standard design 70 stock would certainly fit? Or maybe various other suggestions? My father in law has actually a Winchester model 70 30-06 featherweight and also I deserve to not think the distinction in weight. Say thanks to you.

The Sears version 53 was made by Winchester under a contract through Sears. The was manufactured and easily accessible from Sears until they stopped offering firearms. It usually is a no frills design 70 and also is rather good. My favorite version 70s are the Featherweight and also the at sight Grade. The Featherweight is lighter 보다 your rifle. The super Grade is heavier. You can take turn off the wooden stock and lighten the rifle v a artificial but it would not enhance the rifle. You might take turn off the stock and replace it v a long activity Boyd laminated stock and it would not lose an ounce but would work really well. The Boyd Laminate Pararie Hunter is one if the toughest and most attractive version 70 replacement stocks ns have ever seen. If ns were to update a Sears model 53 in 30-06 that would be an impressive change. But the resale worth of the rifle to a location like Kittery Trading post would not match a labeling Win version 70. Come a personal buyer or for you come use? A substantial upgrade! The finished stock Boyd, requiring basically no mods would certainly be about $180. Finest choices in Boyd would be black color Laminate that they contact Pepper or brown the they speak to Nutmeg. Girlfriend could likewise get it fairly cheaply changed to your specific stock size which I constantly prefer. The action is most likely technically a 1968 style feed i m sorry is an extremely OK.
