McMillan stocks are over rated , over priced and their customer service sucks !!! I've had an A5 ordered for a friend for 17 weeks now , 6 weeks ago I called and asked they acted like they diden't care that they had no record of it , but they cashed the check the day it arrived!!! I'll carve a stock out of a cactus before I buy another McMillan and I'll casterate myself with a spoon before I recomend them to anybody . Their crappy service will eventualy cost them alot of money and god forbid that the goverment drops them
Now that I got that off my chest , I have heard nothing but good things about Manners , i talked to Terry Croiss about them and he likes them better than McMillan , Manners uses the Terry Cross hardwear in their comb adjustment and its very well made.
If your not opposed to do the work yourself you can get an A5 Laminated stock from Joel Russo ,I have used several of them and all turned out great , the best part is that you can carve and sand them to fit your hand perfectly. Joel's wait is WAY shorter than McMillan's generaly around 6-8 weeks and his customer service is second to none.
here is my latest A-5L on my 260 its a brown on brown A5L stock with the Terry Cross hardwear in the adjustable comb , the grip was "contured" to fill my hand better.
