I just measured the stock. It reduces the OAL by 10.5 inches.

The XLR does have a folding option.

RD - absolutely right. Another senior moment.

Re: ELR Folding Stock?

Well, thanks for the suggestions. There were a couple there I had never seen before.

I will say that I had thought about the XLR but I didn't think that they had a CIP length chasis, which I DEFENITELY want. I did see though that they sell CIP mags so I will try and give them a call on mon. Also, there shop is about 40 mins. from my house, so it would be pretty easy to stop in.

One thing I did like about the looks of the Manners was that it is fairly streamlined, and I could use the DSSF bottom metal from Accurate-Mag. It is supposed to be .75" shorter than a standard AI.

I defenitely do not like a flat toe. I just think it's too hard to adjust for elevation when using a rear bag, maybe just preference. I also defenitely want a stock that folds and doesn't come off. I know me and I would loose it almost certainly.

So, what I am looking for is a folding stock, CIP length, DBM, for a Rem 700 with an angled toe.

I'll let you all know what I hear about the XLR and the CIP mags unless someone already knows?

Does anyone know of a 3 round CIP length 338 LM magazine? I think that would be perfect for hunting! When do you get 3 shots let alone 4? And it wouldn't stick out from under the trigger guard so far.

Anyone else who wants to chime in, feel free, I really appreciate the suggestions.

Re: ELR Folding Stock?

I just noticed that McCree precision has a CIP length folder now. I have to say that i really love the price, (on sale right now for $600).

Pros:
Price (is the Manners worth $700 more?)
The buttpad adjusts up and down which I think is great.
Would be easier to attach my Versa-Pod.

Cons:
Is it going to be as accurate as a Fiberglass Stock?
Not as smooth as the Manners but not nearly as bad as some of the other chasis.
Not entirely sure that I'm sold on the pistol grip.

Thoughts anyone? Anyone used one on a longrange rig? How did it shoot?

Re: ELR Folding Stock?

I have the McRee chassis and cannot bring myself to replace it. It shoots extremely accurate when I learned to experiment with the torque values for the action bolts. Mine seems to like 40 for the front and 28 for the rear. The manners performed the same but costs just under twice as much.

My likes are the McRee is:
1) extremely adjustable
2) durable
3) cost
4) can use a stock pack (highly recommended)
5) Can use any m4 grip. I swapped mine out with the ergo grip.

Dislikes:
1) No thumb shelf (kind of a big deal for me given my preferred grip)
2) some sharp edges
3) in cold weather aluminum chassis just feel colder (bought a skid plate which I hope will help) http://www.deltaoutdoorsman.com/scar...&productId=281
4) In general the way the stock comes over the top kind of bugs me.

Here is a link to some recent groups:

It really comes down to how much value do you place on the pros vs cons between the various products out there. I hope this has been of assistance.
