    I ordered a Winchester Marksman with a Rem short action/Senderro contour inlet, it took exactly 18 weeks from ordering to my doorstep and i am in the UK.

    Dont stress too much on your stock. At the first of january i ordered a savage hunter stock, plain jane as they come, and i recieved it maybe a month ago!!! Good thing about the stock though, as skinny as it is i would be you i could do chin ups on it and not flex it. they make a hell of a product, just take too dang long doing it.

    Stay away from the MPI stocks...

    I used their tactical stock on my STW. We had to add material to the floorplate area so that the stock would be deep enough to fit the magazine. The fore-end was cracked in a few places, so we fill the entire forend with Devcon. I also had to fill the pistolgrip area with devcon to stiffen things up there. I thought maybe this was a fluke, so we ordered another for my brother 243AI. His took the same amount of work. After around 30 hours in my stock, I had the rifle apart one day and noticed the stock was cracked in 3 different places around the action area. I solved the problem and ordered a McMillan.

    Ok, so if the demand is so high and has been for years, why doesn't McMillan do something about the production capacity? I mean da ...

    (I have been dying to ask this!)

    Well, it's August and my McMillan Tooley MBR stock is still not here. It has been 24 weeks from when I ordered it. I have all my other parts for my new rifle, I am just waiting on the stock. I wish it would get here!
