there's a post going over on precisionlongrangehunter.com about getting a laminated wood stock that's an exact copy of the a-5 MacMillan.inletted for your action but is not final sanded and finished.alterations can be ordered.price is around 265 with a very quick delivery time.the post answers about any question or you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Hi, I appreciate your 'concern', however the cost was no more than one normally pays for a competent craftsman to carry out the supply and fit of a custom stock. The result is in line with my expectations, and I expect the quality to be remembered long after the price is forgotten.
Andy, Thanks for the pic, you are right in your assumption , the stock that I have is a Sako Hunter pattern inletted for the Tikka 595. so the shape around the tang is somewhat different to that which you have, and it is a very neat fit.
Cheaper gunsmiths there certainly are, however for several reasons I elected to have PRS do the the rebarrel and customising work, and I am pleased with the result, the rifle shoots in the .3's also and is aesthetically pleasing to my eye. That's what I asked for, and that's what I was delivered, on time, within estimate. On that basis I would go back to PRS for a similar customising project. Nuff said.

I have at long last taken some pics of the rifle, and would happily email them to you if you re interested to have a look. I still havent got to grips with this pic posting millarky [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
thanks for the belated photographs. The tang area does indeed look better for attention with Callums file! It is a pity that MacMillan didn't get the fit right in the first place - nevermind.
When I carried out the bedding work on my stock, which, is the painted Grey colour - not the moulded in colour you have, I found that beneath the surface of the paint, the stock was a pinkish colour, so I have left the area around my tang well alone, as I have said, I can live with it and the rifle shoots pretty well without further fettling.
