Re: Manners Stock Experience?

just another note from my dealings with Tom Manners he was a super nice guy and his turn around times for a stock build are great. If you had gone with a factory ordered mcmillan you could wait 6 months.

Re: Manners Stock Experience?

I have had 5 Manners stocks thru the years.
I only have 2 at present, as I have sold some rifles lately, but they are great stocks. And the customer service and turnaround time is great as well.

Re: Manners Stock Experience?

Rest assured that the wait is well worth it. I built my custom last summer and the Manners was an easy choice. McMillan had over 6 month wait for shipment. I think my Manners T2 was done in about 10 weeks. IMO, even if Manners and McMillan had the same delivery time I would still go with Manners. My next build will have a T2 as well, if I could just decide on the cartridge.

Re: Manners Stock Experience?

Thanks for all the positive feedback. I look forward to receiving my Manner's Stock shortly. I spoke with Tom over the telephone, and he advised that it would ship toward the end of the week, and he held true to his word. Tom was a true gentleman to speak with, and very professional. I am very anxious to get my hands on this stock. Thanks again!

Re: Manners Stock Experience?

I use predominatly all manners stocks on my custom rifles. His delivery time has slowed just a bit from several years ago but when you make great products this will happen when the orders start flooding in. Still they dont take that long vs other vendors. When you add more options to the builds the time will slow down vs a standard item.

I just got word today that my T5 A stock is about ready, its going on a special build for the owner of
MPI rifles, 338 Snipetac caliber. Carbon fiber barrel from ABS.

Not to highjack the thread, but Dave could you post something on this site about your 375 VM. I think everyone here would find it very interesting.
