I am re-barreling my son's Howa 1500 in 6.5x55 Swede and was looking for an affordable aftermarket stock. Not many affordable options out there for the Howa/Vanguard actions. Especially not so for shorter LOP stocks. So I went with this new Boyds At-One adjustable stock. Starting price is only $180. I paid a little extra for the "Ripple Coyote" color laminate so total was $214 shipped. This price definitely gave me some doubts, but for the money I figured it was worth a shot. I was mostly worried about the fit and finish quality for the price, but as Ive found with all Boyds stocks, the fit and finish was exceptionally good compared to any stock at any price point. The adjustable cheek piece and butt plate are very solid when locked into position. Maybe not quite as rock solid as a stock with a tension locking system, but definitely solid enough that it would not be a concern for accuracy. The solidity of adjustment points was actually my biggest surprise given the price point. The cheek rest is made from some sort of rubber material that is very high quality. Although it is a rubber type material, I found it did not want to pull the skin on my face at all when I pressed my cheek hard against the rest and moved it back and forth. Whatever the material is composed of, it has a good slick surface to it. There is just a little play when the cheek piece is locked into different positions, but like I said before, I don't think it's enough to be of any concern. I really like the push button locking system. Very fast and easy to make adjustments. The butt plate has almost no play when set to different LOP positions. The adjustments are a lot finer as well so LOP can be tuned to just the right spot for any shooter, youth or adult. It is made from a thick aluminum plate and a rubber butt pad. However, there is very little cushion on the pad, nearly a solid piece of rubber, so I don't think this stock would be ideal for heavy recoiling rifles that do not employ a muzzle brake. Nonetheless, the fit, finish, and solidity of the butt pad are excellent. A job well done by Boyds. Both push bottons for adjustable pieces do take considerable force to depress making it a two handed operation in all cases. Up side to this is that you can be sure the cheek piece or butt pad will hold their positions and stay solid. The butt of the stock has a hole for a quick detach side mount swivel sling stud on both sides up near the front of the comb. Though I will probably not use this, it may be an attractive feature to some folks. Not sure why they didn't add one on the sides of the forearm though?... It also comes with double Mikes sling swivel studs on the bottom of the forearm and one on the bottom of the butt for standard style bolt rifle sling attachments. As you can see in the pictures, the grips and forearm can be changed out. Supposedly Boyds will be offering wider forearm options and grips with wider palm swells if a person desires such a thing. I am not sure why there is a removable plate under the butt? Perhaps they will also be offering a bag rider option for the butt of the stock. Not sure. The waves in the laminations are induced into the wood to get the unique 'ripple' color effect. My son really likes the look of it so I'm happy too My one issue is how sharp they made the forearm tip on the top and sides. I will leave it as is for now, but I forsee this getting damaged and chipping off with field use in the future. At which point I will simply round the points and edges off and refinish so it's not a huge concern. In conclusion, this is a LOT of stock for the money. Not sure how Boyds can put this much engineering and quality into a piece of wood for under $200, but they do. Of course only time can be the real judge of the At-One quality, but first impressions have me very impressed for the price point. Hope this review helps some of you that may have been wondering about these stocks. Thanks folks.
