    I've done my 7-08 onto a Boyds laminate stock. Super happy with it.

    It's been one of a series of upgrades.

    Started with laminate stock, the pillars, then full bedding, and finally did AICS DMB

    Unfortunately not a whole heap of options for Savage chassis systems available locally. Best one Ive seen so far was the KRG one.

    Looking into this myself at the moment.

    Bell and Carlson also look like they do Savage Stocks. Potentially their model # 1007 or 1009 will work, depending on if it has a top or bottom bolt release. Unsure how difficult it would be getting them shipped in to NZ. Doesn't seem like anyone stocks them.

    I had my original stock stabilized by a local gun smith. Much more sturdy and rigid now but has added quite a noticeable amount of weight to it. If weight isn't an issue though it is probably the most cost effective option.
