Sugarbear, I found the stock on EBAY. Man!! that would be a great deal, however, it's been pillar bedded for the McMillan Action, so I don't know if it would work with the Lawton M8000. I would have to see what Kirby thinks, if he thinks it would work, then I will get it.
Joel, WOW, I did not know that. What color does your stock come in, can you do one in Matte Black. I am wanting a Woodland Camo Pattern, however, if you make the stock in a Matte Black color, this could be the answer to my problems. Will your stock handle a barrel with a 1.500 strait taper barrel. If I go with your A-5 stock, I will probably go with the origanl barrel diameter Kirby and I decided on which was 1.350 tapered to 1.250. If I go with the BIG MAC stock than I am going with a larger 1.500 diameter, however, if your A-5 stock will handle that size of barrel than I may go that rout. I am waiting to hear from Kirby regarding these changes. The stock seems to be a real problem for this project, I really want to find a stock so I can get this project started. Can you show me some more of your A-5 stocks in different colors. Thanks Joel, and I am sorry I did not know about you designing the stock for McMillan. I guess they, McMillan, told Kirby they could only make that stock for Chey Tac.
Send me an e-mail and I'll gladly send you all the different colors I have. I have a Black on Black which can be finished in matte clear. My stock will handle your 1.500" bbl and can go up to 1.650". It will easily accomodate a 1.350" bbl.
McMillan may have some sort of contractual obligation with Chey Tac, I don't know. What I do know, is that stock was developed in our shop for the Chey Tac bottom metal and McMillan.
It would be just a routine stock to make in either ADL, BDL, or single shot.
I'm not trying to push my stock, I replied to your original post just trying to offer you something that you originally wanted, but did'nt think was possible for you to get.
Joel, I got your e-mail, WOW!!!! your stocks look awesome. I sent you another e-mail with questions. I am very impressed. I think this might take care of the stock problem!! One of the questions was I noticed one of the stock had a forend like a shehane Tracker or Tooley MBR. It looked like it has a 3" forend?
