composite stocks

Hi all
is there any other good companies out there that are making good composite stocks.
I am thinking of starting a new project and my last couple have been with MC Milan stocks.
I have been less than impressed with MC Milan's quality of finish,there custom inletting is crap and there delivery times are WELL I WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN IT COMES.(I ordered it at the beginning of Jan,and was told 8 weeks,every time i call them from the UK the delivery date goes up a month.)
not what i expect from a 350 = $630 stock (this price is after import and shipping)
So if there is anyone out there with some help or a link for me to take a look at
thanks
Colin

Re: composite stocks

I would be interested in an alternative as well.

Not that I've got any gripe on quality etc., but I ordered in Feb and haven't been informed that my stock has been shipped yet.

I'm not lilely to have had alternatives though - the stock is for a M995 TRG.

I'm in South Africa so I figure maybe the non-domestic orders are on a slightly different schedule, which I suppose is (partly) understandable.

Re: composite stocks

I was also going to suggest Robertsons Composite in Canada. They do quite a bit of overseas business and their products are very well received in the Canadian match shooting circuits.

Right now the Cdn dollar is very strong so the 'price' might be more then a USD stock but you can always talk to Ian about that.

Re: composite stocks

Bob Culbertson at Lone Wolf just did a stock for an old Sako L579, I could not be happier.

Good luck,

Shu

Re: composite stocks

Ever consider a quailty laminated stock? Got a guy that make awsome LAMINATED A-5 stocks for under 300 bucks US. And if he won't ship out side the US, buy it, ship it to me and I will send it to you.
