My new semi-custom rem 25-06

I just picked up my new 25-06 Rem. Its a rem 700 action, 24" shilen bbl, seems to be heavier then a sporter contour, and I'm not sure what stock it has, it is synthetic, but I like it and it seems to fit me perfectly. Trigger needs to be reworked down to around 2lbs so I"ll be doing that before I put any rounds through it. It came with Leupold 1 pc base and rings, and also an older Vari x2, 4-12 AO scope. I picked it up for what I thought was a steal of a deal at $650. I hope it shoots as good or better then my old 25-06 which was a winny model 70 sporter that I traded off a few months ago. I needed another 25-06 and couldn't pass this one up. I have a few of my 75g vmax w/IMR-4831 that shot great in my Winny, so will go ahead and shoot a few of them to see how they shoot out of this Rem, then its time to go slay some yotes!!! Well here it is.

I have no idea who the stock is made by. I took the action out of the stock and I dont see anything resembling a name anywhere on it??? I really like the stock as well. It kinda reminds me of a weatherby stock with how tall the monte carlo or whatever you wanna call it is. When I shoulder it, I dont have to move my head one bit, it puts me right there!! Maybe thinking I need a few more of these style stocks for my other rifles.

BTW- Anyone know how to tell how old the rifle is?? The serial number on the action is 13373. I would think its pretty old as my other remingtons are about 7 digits long with a letter in front of the numbers. Can you call Remington and give them the number to see when it was made??
