    I'm leaning toward McMillan for a build I'm getting ready to do. Curious what they look like decked out.

    You can buy MCMillan stocks, ready to ship at the LRH Store.

    Question:

    Does the adjustable cheek piece feel cheap? I'm concerned and I want some durable quality.

    Beautiful gun though.

    No, I don't think its cheap at all. Actually, I may be wrong, but it appears to be made of aluminum and has some sort of rubber coating on it. I like the saddle much better than the Thumbwheel because it is so much faster to raise and lower.

    I have another one with the thumbwheel, and I can't take my bolt out unless I crank the cheekpiece back down. Its not really a problem, just takes longer.

    If you're going to spend the money for a McMillan, gut an adjustable cheekpiece. Also, while the A5 is very popular, I don't like it because of the bottom of the buttstock - the cutout on the bottom does not allow for making elevation changes with rear bag adjustments. Whereas the A3 has an angled buttstock and you can make elevation changes by sliding your rearbag backward or forward.

    A5 Circa 2006. Ordered the Stock while I was in Iraq. It has been painted a bunch of different times so you can see it in different colors.
