Does anyone know of a company producing aftermarket Center Grip Stocks for the Savage Striker Handguns. I have been getting the itch to try a Savage Striker again, but would really prefer a good quality Center Grip Stock. Yes I know I can reshape the original synthetic stock, but you know how it is.

Thanks

Larry

Hey Larry...I was just getting ready to post the same question. Maybe try a Super Striker...a local gun shop has a few new ones for $380. That's where I got mine. They have a lot more meat to work with than the synthetic stock and can be reshaped rather easily. Plus you get the stainless action.

KYODE the Super Strikers came with a Laminated Wood Thumbhole Stock, while the standard Strikers came with the Injection Molded Synthetic Stock in a regular pistol grip configuration.

Dan I guess what I am really looking for is a Super Striker in .243 Winchester WITHOUT the Adjustable Muzzle Brake. However if the right deal came along (and I had the funds) I'd consider a 7mm-08 or .308 also without the Adjustable Muzzle Brake.

If I could find a .243 Super Striker I'd probably just shoot that, but if I found a 7mm-08 or .308 I'd probably eventually make it a switch barrel.

Not really sure what I want yet, for that matter I never really know what I want for sure.

I did find an aftermarket stock several years ago, but it was "expensive" and still not what I would want. I have been told (don't remember where) that the synthetic stock on the Striker is soft when it comes to attempting to bed it better, so the Super striker stock is better. For me I would have to cut out the thumbhole portion (like I have done with the with an old fajen thumbhole stock for a XP) to make it an ambi stock. I am unsure if that could be accomplished with the SS stock but it would be the way I would go if I purchased another Striker. The only other thing I am waiting on in terms of the Striker is a better trigger pull. I have had a Basix trigger on a Striker and was still not satisfied (Okay, so I am picky--I admit it!).
Accuracy potential in the Striker is great. If i did a Striker project it would meet those credentials (Oh, and yes it would be a switch barrel).

Thenks Ernie. I have only ever handled ONE Super Striker, and it was a couple years ago. From what I remember it did feel better than the Synthetic Stock on the one I had (which I should have never sold to start with).

At any rate I'll find one someday, the question is if I can afford it when I do find it.
