Stocks

Gentlemen

I am now considering changing the stock on my rifle instead of fitting a comb raiser, expensive I know but it may be the only way I can get what I want. My question is: McMillan provide good quality stocks, is there anyone else I can look at?

Thanks in advance

H

Re: Stocks

from reading your other post there is two ways. one is get a stock from companys like www.boydboys.com/ or www.rifle-stocks.com. Or you can have a turn wheel comb raiser installed from http://www.masterclassstocks.com/accessories.html for $120 either way you are going to be out of $100-150 maybe more

Thanks for the links, they make good reading. I assume from their prices they are on par with McMillan. I am toying with the idea of an A-5 for the Sako and possibly trading the .308 for something a little more special.

BEWARE of the A-5. Once you get behind that baby you will be spoiled for life.

I swear, every other rifle I have feels like a toy now compared to that A5.

They are great

Re: Stocks

The A5 is good and so is the A3 if you do not want the hook butt.

I have a new uninletted A3 with adjustable cheekpiece. Green/black with yellow marble. $350 plus shipping, saves you $100 over ordering.
