I’m having trouble believing this just happened. I was shooting off a bipod from the bench and this happened. I added the pic rail and additional t-nut to this stock but it broke through the factory installed one (I installed the one further forward). This is a super lightweight carbon fiber and Kevlar stock.
the rifle manufacturer stated that they do not recommend use of a bipod on this model so there is no warranty coverage.
anyway, it’s either a freak deal or needs to be a word of caution to anyone using a super lightweight stock. I can’t imagine a stock that you can’t use a bipod with...View attachment 200558View attachment 200559View attachment 200560View attachment 200561View attachment 200562View attachment 200563
Don't know what you paid for that stock, but it was to much. It is just a foam filled shell and was weak by design, light weight normally means weak. Not being critical, but that's a shame to build something like that and charge two prices. Some of the most expensive composite stocks I have worked on are built cheep to save cost and make more money.
I would get a refund and buy another brand Because this could have happened on a once of a lifetime hunt and ruined it for you. The last one that I had to install an adjustable but plate looked like the but stock was stuffed with Ziploc's as a filler, and there were no abutments for the screws so we had to build some before the but stock could be installed and the original recoil was just glued to the back of the stock.
Most composite stocks are way over priced and have many other issues, so much so that I have replaced all of mine with wood or laminates and along with the added strength, accuracy has improved on every one of them to some degree.
Sorry for being so negative, but I have seen this before and just don,t want the problems that come with them to shave a little weight.
Just my experiences with composite stocks as a builder.
