    Who makes a light weight rifle stock for the Rem 700 LA. ADL or BDL. Drop in ready or not. I have some in mind but am wondering if there are any others.

    I have used several Bell and Carlson medalist stocks and had good results. They have an aluminum bedding block and are pretty light too.

    Manners makes an excellent super light, High Tech is under 24 OZ's I think, you can get the Edge McMillan as well.

    I have two of the B&C alaskan II's. They are a great value, the only thing is the pistol grip is very open. I wish it was more of a vertical grip...maybe it's just me. The classic medalist is better for me, though it is a little bit heavier. Check out Stocky's for a good description of the different models.

    How is the fit on your .375?
    Correct me if I'm wrong but it appears to me that some of the other light weight stocks mentioned here are shown without recoil pads and also need to be bedded and painted What will their weights be then?. Is the B&C finished and drop in complete?

    I had to float the barrel but other than that is was 100% drop in ready to go. I only have 30 rounds fired with it but so far it seems like a great stock. I just ordered another b&c for a sendero if that tells you how much i like them.

    All of the stocks mentioned look great. But are they worth the extra money?
    The B&C alaskan seems to be the best value. Has anyone used any of the others mentioned to build and light or ultra light rifle?
