Wildcat composites out of Canada, I've finished the m700 LA BDL at 19 oz.

    G'Day Fella's,

    I Chase Coues, another option that I have a number of and I'm very happy with is; Welcome to High Tech Specialties
    These stock weigh in at 20 ounces out of the mould so add some weight for a recoil pad, bedding material and a coat of paint and there you have it!

    Hope that helps

    Doh!
    Homer

    Homer, High Tech Specialties is on the list. I have one on a 375 Ruger and really like it. It was one of the best factory inlets and had a really nice exterior. Very easy to get bedded and finished. I wish they made a lighter version though!

    The brake on the gun I posted is a Vais. I prefer them over others on the hunting rifles I build because they tame the recoil of the ultra light rifles we'll. I have one on a 5.75lb 7 WSM that is very easy on the shoulder. The lighter the gun the better the brake seems to work.
