WTB - adjustable stock for Omark 44

#1 Postby Finnie » Tue Nov 28, 2017 8:18 pm

WTB Omark 44 stock adjustable for length of pull and cheek weld (Fullbore/Target Rifle).

I've been shooting TR with an omark 44 with the old top wood stock for a little while, and it is becoming clearer to me that my fit with the rifle isn't very good. I seem a bit longer in the arms than the stock intended!

I've heightened the cheek piece and increased the length of pull with some temporary strap on bits and have made it a bit more comfortable. Also about to experiment with some more permanent spacers, but thought it was worth checking to see if anyone had a stock inletted for an omark (2 × bedding screws; one on the recoil lug and one in front of the trigger) that they are interested in parting with?

Cheers
Finnie

i not long ago purchased a hatchers thumbhole stock. [XXX grade]
extremely comfortable and very much worth the $

just sayin...

Thanks lonerider. They look the goods and the price is right, but I was hoping for something adjustable so i could do some fiddling to find out what best fits.

Did you need to bed the stock to your action when you got it? Definitely a stock worth me considering!

i did have the stock bedded.
im sure a good smith or someone handy could put an adjustable cheek piece to it.
the putt pad although not adjustable for length [didnt need it] is adjustable for height and cant. [bisley style pad - uk ebay]
very cheap,but not crap.

Thanks mate. I'll let this ad ride for a couple weeks to see if anyone has an adjustable stock to sell and then have another look at the Hatchers.

In the meantime I'll keep fiddling with length of pull and strap on cheekpads on my current stock to try to find a better fit!

Try QRA website mate. I am sure they have some Cronk stocks left. They have actions is the only problem.

Thanks for all the advice fellas. The stock on the omark was too short for me. Had a length of pull around 11.5 inches and my inside arm measurement as per dgeorge52 is about 13.5 inches.

After some playing around and thinking I decided to sell and start again. All part of the learning experience...thanks for the help and advice!

Cheers
