Re: New McMillan Stock, Bolt won't open

Well I'm somewhat satisfied with what they said. Lynne Sell at McMillan said that the screw is a common problem, which i knew and all I have to do is file down a couple threads. She said that the chips are caused by air pockets during the production process, and she said they will repair it and i will never be able to tell they were there. She says she guarantees there were more chips like that on the stock that were repaired. She said the swivels can be fixed no problem too.

I was also pissed because I am going hunting in AK on Aug 30 to which she originally said there was no way they could accommodate...but "after talking to her production manager" they can do a one day turn around and then ship it 2nd day air to me. Whether or not it will make it in time, will determine how happy I really am with their response.

Call & talk to Ryan M. at McMillan - he'll hook you up!!!

They will fix the stock quickly & as they stated you'll never know it.
