Heskethprithard, I don't know Joel # right off hand, however, make a post on this site asking for Joel Russo's number, and you should get a quick response.

I owened an A-5 built by McMillan, it was an awesome stock and worth the wait. However, had I known about Joel, I would have canceled the order and went with his stock. I would have received it 20 weeks quicker and much cheaper.

He was going to build me one of his A-5 replicas, and I was going to have him paint it Matte black. However, I was laid off from my job and had to cancel the project. Joel was excellent to work with and very understanding. If I were you, I would have Joel build an A-5.

Look at Dead Beats picture. His stock is one of Joels' A-5's. Joel makes a number of different types of A-5 stocks. He makes the standard A-5 and a couple of others that have a wider forend ect. Look at that stock in Dead Beats picture, it's absolutley awesome!!! You can paint it any color you want. I saw a completed rifle with one of Joel's A-5's painted matte black, it looked great.

The next time I want to build a rifle around the A-5 stock, I will have Joel build one, I wont even think about McMillan. From what I have heard, Joels' stocks perform just as well.

I might be wrong, but he might even do bedding work for you if you are using a Remington 700 action. I am not sure on this, but I think I remember him saying he beds too.

Anyway, good luck with your project and stock.

Wildcat

Thanks Overbore, James, Dead Beat and Wildcat... You guys are too kind.

Hesketh,

I only make laminated and hardwood stocks. My most popular is the A-5L. It is an exact duplicate of the A-5, except in laminate. I have a few versions of it, 3" wide forend for F-Class shooters, larger in the action area for the Lawton 8000 action, etc.

All of my stocks are CNC inletted for your action and barrel channel.

I offer all the accessories.. pads, studs, custom milling, finishing, and complete pillar bedding.

I also have about 75 other styles including benchrest, prone, and sporter hunting stocks.

Delivery time is about five weeks.

You can find me here, jkrussos@comcast.net, or here, 717-805-0940, for prices and options.
