It was a 300win. The barrel is a factory Savage 26" stainless fluted varmint taper. It was a very accurate barrel. I sold it a while back and I'm now shooting a 28" Shilen 8" twist stainless select match 7mmWSM.
The stock is a Stockade Tactical/Pdog special. Yes there is a wait, about 14 weeks. Kevin Rayhill makes each one to order. You have your choice of recoil pad, LOP, barrel channel, LH/RH, sling studs, sling cups, sling stud rail, adjustable cheek, and finish.
You can get them unfinished out of the mold, or prepped ready to paint, or painted. I got mine out of the mold and finished it myself with Plastikote Stone fleck and a few coats of satin polyeurethane.
It wasn't exactly cheap, but in comparison to other left hand long action Savage tactical stocks, it was a great deal. Kevin is also very good to deal with. Be prepared for a lengthy chat.
The bolt handle is a Sharp Shooter Supply left hand tactical handle. Fred quit making them(the lefty version) a while back. It's really a shame, it's a great looking handle. Stockade makes a nice one too, but I don't care for its looks.
