McMillan A-5

Anyone contemplating a new tactical or long range style stock should consider the new A-5. Just got one and it is not going to be the last. Fits like a freeking glove - best pistol grip fit of any stock I have handled. Quite a high comb gives total support for your cheek, unique angled top surface instead of rounded. Angled areas on both sides so a lefty would find it as comfortable as a normal person [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Marksman style front-end, one of my favorites. Pistol grip is better fit than my A-2, (and the A-2 is very good for anybody from big to little hands). Have not shot it on the bench or from prone yet but notice it has special cutout to facilitate the rear bag, flat bottom surface to the buttplate. Presentation pad and three swivel studs - the only way to go.

Workmanship is beautiful. I had it inletted for a Williams one-piece M-70 trigger-guard/floorplate assembly and the fit is absolutely perfect. They got the inletting right with their CNC program, dropped in with just a little squeeze - bang-on! Have Marine Tex and Brownell's pillars just waiting for this sucker.

Kelly McMillan has come up with a super stock, will post a few comments when I start pulling trigger. Gotta wipe the drool off first [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
