Q: How do I maintain my Agility stock?
A: Remove debris with a soft-bristled brush, and warm soapy water used sparingly. Dry immediately. Use a light film of good quality gun oil on metal components. Plastic and over-molded components may be dressed with a good-quality plastic and rubber restorer. The wood stock can be dressed with a good-quality wood finish product.
Q: Of what material is the butt pad made?
A: 1/2” thick over-molded rubber
Q: What metals are used in the Agility?
A: Aluminum, stainless steel or zinc, depending on the part
Q: How does the adjustment work?
A: The butt stock is adjusted by depressing the push-button containment, which releases the component for adjustment. Once in the proper position, release the button to re-engage containment.
Q: What about fitting?
A: Most factory Agility stocks can be pulled from the box and your firearm will insert with no need for fitting. However, due to variations in manufacturing, production processes and tolerances, some minor adjustments may be needed to achieve that perfect fit. Please consult a competent and qualified gunsmith if you need assistance.
Q: Should I "bed" the action?
A: Bedding is a technique employed to make a rifle more accurate and prolong the life of the stock. It creates a stable and precise fit to your action. Boyds stocks are meticulously engineered and machined from the most stable materials. In some cases, however, you may want to have the action bedded. Glass bedding does void the 90-day warranty, dry fit first.
Q: Does it fit my make and model of rifle?
A: We will fit the Agility to as many of the variants of inlets listed on our website as possible. Just as with our other stock shapes, it's best to check our website for your specific make, model and action and confirm any measurements, hole spacing and barrel contour measurements on your rifle to be certain they match the stock. This will aid in precluding errors in ordering.
