The stock started as a varmint style Fajen. I wanted to blend the look and lines of a sporter style with tactical / long range features. One of my favorite stocks is Manners MCS-T. My stock shares the same basic design, with my ideas for perfecting it. I made the grip more vertical and the palm swell slightly more pronounced. The comb is higher, wider, and has a "shadow monte carlo style". The forend is very similar to the MCS-T. It is 1/8 " wider, close to parallel with the bore, and the swivel stud placement is slightly wider. The wider stud placement accommodates a harris bipod with a pod-loc. A limbsaver finishes things off. The paint is a two part urethane, similar to Manners and McMillan. My paint is significantly tougher! The paint has a nice texture, and will hold it's color forever. There are no mold lines, or sanding marks, as often seen on others. I took care to seal the barrel channel, inletting, and under the recoil pad to keep the stock impervious to wet conditions. I spent many hours shaping this stock to get it "just right". I have plans to produce the stock in the future, but am not there yet.
The barrel will handle any 7mm bullets you want to run. I prefer 180 - 190 vld's and set it up to be able to handle these.
