Looking for a used fiberglass(benchrest), stock for a Anschutz 54 circa 1965. Presently in a 1408 wood stock. Friend said that the fiberglass would aid in it's accuracy. PLease PM me if you have one, thanks, nilebartram

What sort of stock do you need? AFAIK most fibreglass stocks are hunting or benchrest style. Although fibreglass won't warp with heat or humidity, neither hunting nor BR stocks are suitable for prone/3P; the ergonomics aren't right. There are a few Prone style stocks, such as the MacMillan copy of the 1970s Anschutz 1411, but few 3P designs. Neal Johnson, a well known US gunsmith, made some fibreglass 3P stocks, there is a Johnson-stocked 2013 on Gunbroker.com, but I believe these have been out of production for many years, and Neal retired about 10 years ago.

Most folks who want to upgrade from wood go for aluminium. A properly bedded and pillared Supermatch would be an alternative.

Robertson's Composites manufactured very nice fiberglass stocks back in the day. Too bad they went out of business. As Tim said that 1408 stock properly pillar bedded by somebody that knows what they are doing should work great.
