Yes these are the gel-goat stocks. The color is actually about 0.100" thick so if you get scratches on the stock you can simply take some 400 grit wet/dry paper and feather them out and you will never know they were there.

Very nice. I will be stocking my allen mag with an A-5. I'm just not sure which Allen mag it will go on. I think for my .270AM I will use the McMillan Lazzeroni stock.

Re: McMillan A5 for 270 AM

To the original question What should you get on the stock. I'm interested in the cheek pad option. I don't know how I would figure out whether I would need it or not? can anyone say what would warrant this?

I have a lazz thumbhole sporter in 700LA pillar bedded that i may part with (selling the gun in pieces to fund another project)

is set up for a rem DM mag. decel pad

Let me know if your are intersted.

Kirby -- gelcoat 0.100" thick!!??!? HUH? where? any i have seen were lucky to make 1/16" -- the butt-walls of my 1KBR stock (tracker MBR) is only .100 thick at points...and this includes the gelcoat and several layers of glass!

And in some areas i can see cloth coming thru (in the forend and grip), so .100 is a little generous, though you can sometimes save a scratch by sanding it out...if it is in the right spot.

Re: McMillan A5 for 270 AM

jb1000br,

Dang man that is set just as I'd need it too.. However I want to use the other Lazzeroni stock,the one with the high monte carlo style. I'm sure you'll be able to sell that stock pretty easily though. Folks who like thumbhole stocks seem to really like that one. Thanks for mentioning it though.

Re: McMillan A5 for 270 AM

Boman -- both have the same comb. It is definately the most comfortable thumbhole i have felt! Planning to replace with an A5 though -- trying to keep consostant stock types btwn rifles [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Let me know if you change your mind about my stock [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Cheers,
