Default Replacement Wood Stock for Remington 700

I'm feeling a little classic, or retro, at the moment. So I am considering putting a traditional style wood stock on my Remington 700 SPS .308 - no tactical, no thumbhole, no extra high comb, etc. I've searched online, but Google has not been nice to me. Can anyone point me in the direction of a place that sells them, finished, at a price that won't break the bank? I don't need show quality grain, but want something that looks nice. Since I can buy a Hogue (synthetic) for under $200, I can't justify spending much more than that. Thanks.

Is your SPS a long or short action?

I'd look for a glossy finish BDL takeoff stock.

I got a Boyd's stock from my M1 and am very pleased with it. I would definitely recommend them for a relatively inexpensive stock.

If you would like a simple classic style stock, keep a watch on Gunbroker for a Rem. 700 Classic take-off stock. There is one on there now but it is for a long-action 700:

If you like the looks of laminated stocks (more stable than wood), I have a NIB "JRS Classic" stock in the "brown nutmeg" color that I'd part with if you're interested. It looks like this:

They don't have a high comb, but they have a cheekpiece.

Excellent recommendations!

plsmyk: At this time, I'm pretty sure I'm looking for wood, so I will pass on the laminated stock.
