  • Interarms Mark X .223 cal

    I was past down a fairly decent rifle from my father. It's an Interarms Mark X .223. The rifle is great and more accurate than anything I've shot, but the stock could use some work. It still have the manufacture wood stock on it and I was wondering if somehow I could replace it. As you know, interarms isn't a common rifle so i was wondering if there is another type of stock for a different rifle that would work with this one.

    Thanks!

    Rozz,

    If your OEM walnut stock is salvagable, my advice is to refinish it. If it is a Daly import, the walnut was generally straight and tight.

    Bell & Carlson offer a very stabile polymer stock and it is available in about every color and camo pattern known to man. These are among the best of the polymer stocks and are great for hunting. You might save a few ounces of carrying weight.

    Richards will offer some nice wood and I have a friend that says their fitup is much better than Boyd's. Take that for what it cost you, as I have never used Richards.

    McMillam fiberglass. Rock solid, but check the weight and consider your intended use. Good stuff and every Mac-stocked target rifle I've shot has been a laser in their chassis. Also, heavy!

    Ram-Line. Cheap polymer. A bargain priced flexible flyer. Frankly, your action deserves better IMO.

    High Tech offers good quality in what is basically a blank for your action. Expect a project in fitup, bedding, recoil pad, finishing and swivels.

    Boyd's may offer wood for the short action Yugo Interarms action. Call to verify. Fit can be sloppy in some of their fully inletted stocks, in my experience. If bedding your action or adding recoil lugs, you'll be fine. Sometimes you get an outstanding piece of wood for a bargain price from Boyd's.

      If your rifle shoots well with what it has, I'd refininish and then leave it alone. In other words don't fix something thats not broken. Why I ever liked plastic, I really haven't a clue, I've had ten times more problems getting rifles bedded properly with plastic than with wood for little gain. A good synthetic will cost at least 300 bucks and up. Lesser quality just ain't worth the headache.

        Good rifle. Friend of mine has the heavy barreled version in 308 that I have been trying to talk him into selling to me for over 10 years now!

          Good rifle. I have three in different calibers. I believe they were imported from the former Yugoslavia. Basically a Mauser large ring action.

              May not need accurizing, depending on what your intended purpose is. I had one in 30-06 years ago that would do under an inch with plain old factory Remington Core-lokts from Wally World. Be very surprised if your .223 with a GOOD scope won't do even better.

                Those are actually really good actions, and will likely get more valuable in the future. I just got skinned on buying one from some guy in Oregon who seems to have trouble figuring out how to ship stuff. I would like to find a good one a little closer to home. GOOD Mausers are always nice.

                  FASTEST way to make a rifle shoot better, FLOAT THE BARREL.

                  Get rid of any contact to the bbl after it leaves the receiver. That way you can do what you want to any stock and not worry about the effect.

                  To prove my point I took an old M98 converted to .308 and removed the front of the stock completely except for a thin strip of wood that gave me something to rest on the bags and you could throw a cat through the gap between bbl and stock. Took a 2" gun and turned it into a sub 1" just by letting the bbl vibrate CONSISTENTLY every time it fired.
                  AT one time I did... unbelievable things for this country without question, because it was my country and right. NOW, my country, that country, no longer exists and I now I feel I am the Philip Nolan of my age.

                      Unless you are going to try and make it a 500 yard match rifle, that Leupold 4X should work fine.

                      I am still trying to find one with the synthetic stock for a 'truck gun' for here in Tn.
