Choate stock ??

Hello everybody!

Need help from you!
I'am thinking of a new stock for my Remington VS cal.22-250 LEFTHAND
I know the McMillan and H-S Pres.
But i think they are a little to expensive for my purpose.
So i was looking at the Choate Ultimate sniper stock.
Is this any good???????
I'am from Norway, and nobody here import this stock,so i have only seen it on the web.
Anybody tried it?
Good or bad?

Re: Choate stock ??

Pro's:

Inexpensive
Somewhat adjustable w/ spacers and cheekpieces
Should accomodate about any barrel up to or beyond 1.200" free floated
Built in rail in fore-end, w/ sliding bar for bipod attachment/removal

Cons:

Blind magazine (at least in older ones)
Heavy
Stipling/checkering is almost too sharp
Kind of clubby feeling

I've got one for $50 + shipping if anyone wants it. Reason I'm selling it? Too short for me, and I'm not interested in mod'ing it to fit.

Re: Choate stock ??

choatte design is good but plastic is too soft and the stock is quite heavy

Choatte doesn't exist in left hand model

best is to get a MacMillan ,that a real stock , go to the website of macmillan and check in webspecial or you can go to www.tacticalstocks.com they have some available at good price and perhaps a left hand one or a no inletting where you acaninstall your left hand .

good shooting

Choate do have the stock in lefthand.
At last they say so on their web site.
I know the McMillan stock's but this one is much cheaper.
Thats why i'am wondering about the quality.

Thank's for your answers everybody.
Keep on coming with coments

Sir, if you looking for a Choate Sniper in left hand version go to Gunbroker.com. Then to firearms parts, then to stocks, then to Rem700. Brand new. Good luck, RandyB.
