Re: composite stocks

I am still waiting on my stock. I ordered it 14 weeks ago and McMillan told me it would take 10 to 12 weeks for delivery. Well guess what, it's still not here. I wish I knew how to build stocks, because I would open up a buisness. I don't think anybody really challanges them except for H&S Precision, and I don't think their stocks (H&S) are nearly the quality of McMillan. So I guess the wait is worth it, I just wish when they say 10 to 12 weeks, it comes in that time frame.

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.

I get sick of being told that something is going to take x amount of time,when in reality they are never going to Honor there time of delivery.mine has doubled,witch i think is totally unacceptabl.

personally i think MC Milan is trading on there past reputation.its just a shame i can not find anyone that can have my cash instead.
thanks
Colin

Re: composite stocks

Col,

I'm the guy that makes the laminated A-5L stocks. The info from dlebeck was correct, but I'll elaborate a bit. $265.00 and three weeks gets you an A-5 style laminated stock. We call it an A-5L. Exact dupe of the McMillan, and in your choice of color. Inletted with bbl contour, can also install a Decellerator pad to your length of pull for an additional $75.00.
If you're building a gun on a larger custom action, we offer our A-5CT. this stock is exactly the same in the forend and from the pistol grip back, but it is taller and wider in the action area.

You can e-mail me at jkrussos@comcastdotnet replace the dot with a . and I'll send you some pics.
If you look under equipment reviews on this forum you'll see a thread on Joel Russo stock, there are a few pics of ceg1963's, stock that is one of mine.
