And yes there's probably going to be a spending spree in the future...After about 34 years of marriage I figured out a system. I don't want to hi-jack your post, so I share my system on another post if anyone's expresses an interested...It does work.
Yes I think I got pretty lucky with the stock being "in stock". I was expecting a pretty good wait from what I had read, but they just happen to have the olive/web and the tan/web for the Rem. 700 SA in stock and ready to ship. A girl answered the phone at Stocky's and she was very nice and knew her stuff. She confirmed that the stock I was looking at would indeed fit my rifle correctly and she had my order processed in less than 10 minutes of phone time and that was with me asking questions. I also checked on the Bell & Carlson Medallist in the same style for my new Savage and she told me to expect a 6-8 week backorder/wait. Overall Stocky's was a pleasure to deal with.....So far.
As for the NF scope I ordered it from Bear Basin Optics. I looked at many places and chose this place. I have friends that have used Bear Basin and had good things to say about them. I called and a girl answered the phone and was knowledable about the sales and promotions, but directed me to a Tech out in the shop area to answere my specific NF scope questions and also to ensure that the scope I was ordering was in stock. The Tech was very nice and knew his stuff also. I answered my questions and confirmed that my scope was in stock (he actually went and got it off the shelf while I was on the phone) and flagged it as sold and ready to ship. I ordered a set of rings from them also for the scope since it was 30mm and mine were 1" that I have currently. Here is a big BONUS at bear basin optics. They have 12 months NO Intrest on NightForce, Leuop, Leica, and a few others. I thought this was a great deal. Lots of people dont have the money to drop $1500-$2000 on a scope and this would give them the chance to pay it out in 12 payments intrest free!! Why not use their money for a year?? Anyway the scope shipped out yesterday and will arrive at my place on the 25th!! Thats pretty fast!! Overall Bear Basin was excellent to deal with and thier prices are right there in line with most everyone else.
So for Stocky's and Bear Basin I'll be a repeat customer.
