NEW !!! Prototype Stock

This new stock is a joint effort by Glen Seekins and myself. It has been in the "makes" for quite some time. Glen worked his magic on a blank of pattern wood, and came up with this masterpiece.
I will be producing them in laminate as early as next week.
We don't have a name for it yet, so we'll just call it "the new stock" for now.

What are your thoughts?

That´s the A3-A5 clone many may have been waiting for.

Looks great; do you think the forend could be thinned? in order to save some weight if used in a hunting rig.

Awesome for a LR hunting rig ¡¡

alg,

The forend, in it's present state, is 2.5" on the flat. I can certainly shave it down, and conversly make it wider for the F-class shooters.
I could marry my 3" A-5L modified forend to this stock.

Re: NEW !!! Prototype Stock

Looks like a great prone stock. Only thing I would change is to narrow the forearm a bit, and add a little to the comb & heel (I realize that you would then have to slot the heel for a cleaning rod, but for me it is worth it).

How about "the rangemaster" (if that does not infrige on Remmy).

Doug, why not make the comb high enough so you could bore a hole through the stock for passage for the cleaning rod?

Joel, i bet you love that idea!!!
