aluminum rifle stock

I am Contemplating the idea on designing and milling my own custom rifle stock for my Winchester model 70 7mm rem magnum. I was wondering What you would think the best idea for the fore end and but stock should be like. This gun will be for hunting and shooting. I like the idea of a tube fore end but have no idea how i would attach it to the action part and have it strong enough.

Re: aluminum rifle stock

Well, here's four different mfgs. you can get ideas from. The XLR has the tube forearm that you desire. I ended up going with the McRee gen5 stock for my 338 AI build. Good Luck.

Re: aluminum rifle stock

Where will you be hunting? How cold does it get when you are hunting? Just something to think about when making the stock. Aluminum gets very cold to the touch in cold weather.
