McMillan Stock - $$$ ouch ! $$$

I contacted McMillan for option/price quote to replace my SAKO M995 factory stock for a possible future upgrade/project and got this response:


Quote:
You will have to stick with the M995 (otherwise known as the TRG S) into the A5 (Winchester) stock and would also have to purchase the TRG S trigger guard from us. The stock will run you around $850 with the trigger guard and 1 hour custom work we have to perform (due to tang).
:( :( :(

Have you talk to any gunsmiths or looked into another brand of stock? I am curious because I also have a M995.

Negative, but will have to when the time comes! My factory stock is in excellent shape ... just checking out my options. For after market, the McMillan and Serengeti Stockworks are the only two I found thus far ... and both are very pricey.

I have one Macmillan and there is no doubt it is a quality stock. But I am growing weary of synthetic stocks. The feel and look of wood is so much better.

If you wish to change to a laminated wood or to a traditional solid wood you can contact Joel Russo.

McMillan's turnaround and increasing prices are pushing them out of the market for most buyer's. I'd call Tom Manners. He is excellent to work with. Even if he can't help you I wager he can point you in the right direction. Also Lone Wolf; never used them but hear good things. Talked to the guy on the phone one day. He was a bit abrupt but I likely pulled him off of a mill or something. Nevertheless he answered all of my questions.
