LVT Stock?

Just recently acquired a gorgeous custom helical fluted barrel from work. It's a mid weight, tapered to .720 at the muzzle.

Trouble is that it's much too big for any carbine or sporter stock and it looks terrible in a .920 stock.

Does anyone knits where I could find a stock for this? I know the LVT models are similar but I can't find a darn stock for this barrel anywhere and really don't want to try to open up my sporter stock.

I think the stock LVT barrel is .920 tapered to .705.

Thanks for the reply. That may be the case, cptpoly. I asked and was told that it was the Ruger factory mid weight barrel taper but a shorter length.

If I can't find a stock for it, I suppose I'll have to ask our gunsmiths to re-channel my existing stock.

I've got a factory tapered barrel in a black Hogue overmolded .920 thumb hole stock and it looks great.

So you're saying that you have short custom helical fluted mid weight ruger factory barrel.

I don't believe it and think somebody is feeding you a line of BS.

How about posting some pictures.

Look at the post I just called home stock refinish. You can take a piece of pipe with cloth sand paper. It whittles pretty fast and you can make it fit any diameter barrel. I did glass bed the barrel and put an aluminum pillar. It might work ok with out that.
