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

    Would like to see some pics of McMillan stocks with the imbedded colors.
    This might have been posted before, but a search does not reveal any pics.
    McMillans website does not give many examples of there color combinations, and what they look like. So, if anyone has a colored stock from McMillan in camo or marble, please post a pic and include the color percentages.
    Thanks

    Thanks for the posts. Keep them coming.
    I am surprised McMillan does not have a better photo gallery to show examples of some of the camo/marbled stocks that they produce and send out.

    You can download the catalog (PDF) here... Information on McMillan's Tactical Rifles, Hunting Rifles, and Fiberglass Stocks It has all kinds of stocks in it of all colors..

    I found the color I wanted here, didn't find the McMillan catalog until later... Stocky's New Rifle Stocks - America's Gunstock Specialist! ...I didn't order the stock from Stocky's, just found the color there.

    I have one ordered direct from McMillan....Olive, black, and medium tan (33%-33%-33%)...I call it "ghillie suit", won't get it until October though.

    Should look sorta like this one...this isn't the stock I ordered, just the color.

    Keep in mind that the marbeled patterns and poured in camo patterns are all unique and no two will be the same even using the exact same colors and percentages.

    When you get a McSwirly or McCamo each one is a one of a kind.

    My M700 Rem in 338 Edge... It may not be a camo pattern or swirly but it is a McMillan M40A-1 HTG painted in McMillan Olive with Black Speckles, the barreled action and bottom metal is done in "Foliage Green" Cerakote which lends to the camo effect I think...
    will also be painting the bi-pod and scope in "Foliage Green" Cerakote, soon as I get around to ordering some of the air cure stuff.. (not impressed with the duracoat btw!)

    Probably just like you, I spent a ton of time going through forums like this one trying to find stocks with color ratios I liked. Luckily there are a lot of great people out there willing to share photos of their stocks along with the color ratios they used. To make this process easier on other people, I just finished compiling the most comprehensive photo gallery of McMillan stocks available. In includes pictures of over 200 stocks ... all in one place. Plus the exact color ratios are provided for every single one.

    I started by scowering the web to find as many photos that people have shared on public forums like this, and recorded the color ratios they provided. I then literally spent days organizing and editing all those pictures. I tried to correct photo color issues caused by cameras or exposure, cropped them in a way that makes side-by-side comparison easier, combined multiple views of the same stock into a single image, enlarged & sharpened most of the photos, and added the color ratios for easy reference.
