Re: Montana rifleman action

I know how he feels. Mine took nine monthes and I also got the " it should be ready in 3 weeks" line. I also called at the end of those three weeks for monthes before they mailed it. they also raised their prices to $617 for the Magnum stainless. has your buddy looked at a Stiller action yet? its more like a Rem. 700 then a winch. 70 they seem to have a pretty good turn around time. cost about $700

    I have a M1999 Charter Short action, chambered by them with one of their barrels in 6.5x284. I bought it when they were first producing them and its sitting in the gun safe.


    Does it use the same stock as a Winchester Short action rifle? Before I invest a lot of money in stocking it I would like to drop it into a take off stock and test fire it.

    Thanks

    If you look at McMillans web site they list the m1999 action with all their winchester stocks. I used and MPI stock because supposibly McMillan is way backed up with military orders and is approximately 16 weeks out. I got my MPI in 3 weeks.

    I remember when I bought it they said something about a pre or post Win 64 Stock, I forget now. I was hoping a Winchester tupperware take off would work, something from eBay. Then if it shoots get a A-5L for it.

    Thanks

    Unless yours is different (being one of the early m1999) is should be a post 64.

    I bought it as a charter action, before they went into production. It took a long time to get, a lot of delays, and has sat in the gun safe since. I don't think the design has changed since it first went into production???

    Thanks
