Alright so I'm sure this thread has been on here a thousand times, but I'm 100% new to this stuff and
could use some advice. I currently have two Mosin Nagant 91/30's and I plan on on leaving one of them
"as is", and sporterizing the other. I'm looking for a wooden, thumb hole, left handed stock, similar to the one in the picture. I don't want anything fancy or dramatic looking. My wood working skills are low at this point so the stock will have to be something I can just drop right in and hopefully it will be already free floated. Any suggestions on where to look?

Left hand, thumbhole, fully inletted with barrel channel enlarged. - I think you're gonna have a hard time finding one. If you wanted a right handed, laminated stock you could check boyd's.

He might be right. Could be one of Boyd's stocks.

Although it could also be one of Richard's microfit stocks.

I've been drooling over both site's choices for a while now.
Both are available for the Mosin Nagant.

Ugh I don't think left handed Mosin stocks exist

You can try emailing Boyds and asking if they will do a custom stock in left handed for you. The worst that can happen is that they say no and you have to look elsewhere. Other than that Free floating a barrel is easy, all you have to do is wrap a 1/2 dowl rod in sand paper and run it back and forth in the barrel channel until there is no wood to metal contact, There is really no skill needed for that. LOL

I have one of the Richards Microfit "Tac-Driver" stocks for my 1905 Ross. They didn't have any patterns to inlet it to, so it just has the barrel channel cut.

They offer left-handed shapes for $15 extra. I got that, and had them leave the Monte Carlo comb off.

At the moment the stock is leaning against the wall; I'm going to practice on a cheaper one before attacking the fancy one.

I found a piece of black walnut and built a stock myself... a little time, and a bit of ingenuity, and some Probed 2000 to finish the imperfections while glassbedding the action to the stock, and I have a decent hunting rifle, that i personally like the looks of a little better. I still have he factory stock, and rifle is otherwise unmodified, except polishing the trigger sear spring a bit
