Grey Bull rifle stocks "Now with Pics"

I am looking at buying a second hand Grey Bull rifle stock for a Remington 700 long action from a bloke on the "Used Guns" web site.

Not sure what to look out for. Are they any good?
Any known problems with these stocks?

This stock is supose to be "As New" for about 1/2 the price of a new H-S precision stock.

Thanks.

Those GrayBull Precision stocks are first class. Kind of a cross between a tactical and varmint style. I keep a 'display model' in the shop and in the short time I've had it, I've ordered and used another for a build. If it's 'as new' at half the price, I'd jump on it!

Think of them as a modified Bell & Carlson (that's who makes them). If you can get the stock for a good price I'd do it.

If by chance you decide not to buy this stock - I would appreciate you letting me know where/how to buy it as I would jump all over it at half price. Got any idea why the party is selling it?

Thanks for that info, I was wondering who makes the Greg Bull stocks.


I have paid for the stock and will put it to good use.

Cowboy,
Its going onto my .338RUM, the fellow bought it for a rifle project but has decided to go in another direction with the project so it is surplus to his needs. These stocks seem to be selling at a quite reasonable price direct from Grey Bull so If this one turns out to be OK I might even buy another one from them for another rifle that I have.

It came in the post today so I wasted no time getting it up into the shed and quickly fitted it onto the rifle.

Then out into the field for a shot.

A few quick shots at 100 yards to make a fine adjustment to the zero then straight out to 1000 yards for some fun.
