Laminated Stocks?

Hello all,

I am having a long range rifle built and am at the point where I need to make a decision on my stock. I like the look of the laminated Richard's microfit prone and tactical style stocks and would like to know if anyone has experience with this company or their stocks. I also need to know the advantages and disadvantages regarding accuracy potential with laminate stock vs. synthetics?

(I did a search on this, but came up with nothing specific)

Thanks in advance,
Brandon

    You won't notice any accuracy difference in a properly bedded lam vs. a properly bedded syn. I've heard people say that lam is just as stable as syn. Which ever one looks best to you is the one I would go with.

    the richards micro fit will require some extra work before you will be able to start finishing it. Mine required the saftey cut out to be enlarged and a lot of sanding. The elkridge laminated stock i have only took a light sanding before finishing was necessary.

    Goes back to the saying you get what you pay for IMO

    if you like the a-5 macmillan stock, but want a laminated. just send an e-mail to jkrussos@comcast.net. he's making an exact copy of this stock in a laminated version with different color combo's. price is 265 i think, but is not final sanded or finished.there's a post over on precisionlongrangehunter.com under front porch, a-5 laminate. it's a long post,but probably answers any question you might have.i've seen these and they are 1st class.

    Go to this site http://www.baercustomrifles.com/ and look at Bruce Baers laminated stocks. He has over 50 plus stock patterns in his shop and can mix and match forends, grips, butts etc.
