Synthetic for Stock for Kimber 84L

Thanks for help guys & gals,
I have a Kimber 84L (.270 win) that I recently picked up is in pristine condition. So much so that I am wanting to get a synthetic stock put on it...and keep the factory wood stock as new. I have searched the world over hoping to find one off a Montana...or similar by Kimber...but haven't seen anyone getting rid of theirs.

That said, are there any ideas on where to get a similar quality stock for this hunting season. Thx-

McMillan can probably make one for you.

If the rifle was carefully crafted/bedded etc it would be a disservice to swap out stock to "protect" it.

How much time and real effort are you dedicating to the people and causes you truly care about?

Not trying to be a smart ass but why didn't you buy a Kimber rifle that already had a plastic stock?

To me if you ever sold the rifle with the original wood stock and it showed signs of wear and use, it would give it class and style. I don't mean drag it behind your truck but I am talking about normal use.

I also agree with Maineiac's statement. You might destroy a very accurate rifle just to preserve a wooden stock, when the real resale value would be supreme accuracy no matter what the wood stock looks like.

I don't think putting a bedded high end synthetic on it would do anything but improve accuracy. And I acquired the rifle on a trade, was more than glad to take it in. I would sell it outright, but it has the most unreal I'll probably just call Kimber and get them to put a Montana stock on it. I love the wood, don't get me wrong. But crawling thru buck brush here where I hunt...the fiber stocks hold up a lot better. I do it with all my "fine AAA woods"...have never had a problem swapping them back and hurting their "integrity". SO, On the chance that someone here had a spare synthetic drop in...and wanted to put some cash back in their pocket...thought I would ask.

Thanks for all your help :-)
