McMillan A4 Ready To Ship

McMillan stocks At the LRH Store -- I'm really looking for peoples opinion that have handled and are familiar with both stocks, the differnces between them, and can really give advantages/disadvantages of boths features so I may decide which might be best for me on my 338 LI project.

Thanks for any help. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Brent,
Go with the A5 all the way. Better thought out and much improved over the A4.
Butt hook was moved foward on the A5 to allow more room for a rear bag, fore end is the Winchester Marksman style rides bags better and fits the hand better than the square blocky A4.
Let me put it this way- I have built almost 100 rifles on the A5, have 30 more stocks on order from McMillan. I can't keep 'em in the shop at all!!
Chris

Mr. Matthews,
by the # of rifles you have built, would it be safe to say you work for G.A. Precision?
Or who?
Thanks,

Chris,

Thanks for the most excellent review. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Just what I was looking for.

With your experience with them, what is the largest bbl dia. that fits well while keeping it free floated, 1.25"?

I talked to Kelly when they came out with the first ones and I since had forgotten the butt hook had been moved forward. He said the palm swell was a tad smaller too I think, different somehow with a better fit I do remember. I wish I had one of each to lay hands on up here before I had to decide. If I don't get the chance to, the A5 should be nice.

Thanks again! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

RedMan, Chris does indeed work at G.A. Precision.

re: McMillan A4 Ready To Ship

I have both stocks and perfer the feel of the A4 model. Both stocks have +&- points. A4 hase a better grip feel and I perfer the forend of the A5. My last custom rifle I had built I went with a Maners A4 adjustable stock and love it. Has the best of the A4 & A5 in my opinion. After using this stock for 2 years I will not use a McMillan again. Give them a look at, a whole lot of people are using this stock and swear by them.
