So, it is soon time for me to make the decision. I have a .30-06 and a 404 Jeffery which are going to get new stocks, but I'm not sure which rifle should get which piece of wood.. Both of the rifles are Sako's, so while not a classic action, I'd still like the classic look. Gloss finish on action and barrel (which is the current state anyway). Straight comb, overall slim looks, no drop-belly magazine, ebony fore end tip, wrap-around checkering etc. The .30-06 should really get a Red Silvers pad, but for the 404 I'm afraid I'll need something softer (Pachmayr?). Also, they are both left-hand, so the 'presentation side' is different from the more common right hand stocks. My idea is a stock shape (for both rifles) similar to the Dorleac & Dorleac "Classic Plains Game Rifle" (not sure if it is OK to borrow their picures, but I can at least post a link). https://www.dorleac-dorleac.com/guns/our-products/our-product-line/classique/?lang=en The 404 has a 26 inch barrel which of course has a heavier profile than the 30-06 (which is only 23 in), but the stock maker can surely find a way to give them the same "visual balance" so to speak. With that bit of background, which would you choose for which rifle?
