There are synthetic stocks available for the Garand, but it is almost heresy to put one on a Garand.

I've mostly been shooting in 200-yard reduced-range Garand shoots for the last decade, and let the two Garands I've taken to Perry get away from me, one tuned by Crane armorer Glenn Nelson and the other a Ron Smith gun from my wide-open-spaces Arizona days. Both went to young shooters really building their own capabilities, one a competitive National Guard shooter on his state's *Governor's 20* team, who's now decided that maybe his match M16A2 isn't the only way to go.

I'll get along okay with my Arkansas/Marine match Garand and its original walnut okay, I expect. But if I was around Florida or the Texas Gulf I might feel otherwise.
