I am new to the site, but it looks like a good place to ask if anybody has used an MPI stock, and what they thought of them. I am looking at installing an MPI sillhoette thumbhole stock on my sako 300 RUM. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I have a few.The gunsmith I used in the 80's-90's used MPI exclusively.He went over to Mcmillan though because they could make their stocks to the specs he wanted better than MPI,such as weight,finish,etc.
Stay away from them.....Spend a little more and get the Manners. The MPI stocks that I have used take alot of work to get them usable. Both of my MPI Tactical stocks broke in the action area in 2 or 3 places. MPI told me it was because of the caliber.....7mm STW, Heavy barrel and a brake.....recoils like a 243.... Needless to say, they wouldn't replace them or give me my money back. Both stocks went bad within 3 months. I replaced it with a Mcmillan and have had no problems. I just received 2 Manners T-2 stocks. I am extremely impressed. They are 90% carbon fiber and seem to be tough as hell.
That is really to bad to here. I have always used Mcmillian stocks but have wanted to try the MPI thumbhole stock as well. I have held the stocks and they have appeared to be very well constucted. I appreciate the information that you are providing because I am about to make a stock purchase and they were the front runner. In my experience in dealing with them on the phone they have been extremely polite and helpful, which is more than I can say for the people at Mcmillian. I have always been a person that likes to do bisiness with people that are respectful.
