the AG is sold through stockys stocks it is a carbon fiber
The Stocky's LRC which is being discussed here is not made by AG. You're thinking of Stocky's CFLR (Carbon Fiber Long Range) stocks which are made by AG. There's a huge difference between the two.

That said, I had one of the CFLR stocks (made by AG) which also had a lot of flex in the forend and I got rid of it.

Again a reminder...I have a couple Stocky’s, both with aluminum bedding blocks. If you do a remage conversion with the tapered lug you will have to open up the area in the lug for the taper to fit. Also some work is required for the remage nut. Not a really big deal as long as you have good sharp carbide cutters ( one rounded and one straight) for your dremel tool. Just make sure you have the stock secure, in a vise, and it will turn out just fine.

I have a Stockys Long Range Composite. It is like a mix of a Manners and Mcmillan in design on a .243 with a PTG action and Shilen Rem Sendero 26" bbl . The forearm is very cool with the barrel insert. I planned to shoot it from a bench or bipod. It is a good pound heavier than a fiberglass or Kevlar stock, but I wanted the weight to reduce recoil. It is super stiff. I cannot flex the forearm with any kind of reasonable weight. It does not flex whether on a pedestal rest or bipod. There is enough free float clearance that the forearm would never touch the barrel. What do you think you're going to do with your stock mounted to a barreled action anyway? and with a $1-3K scope on it! You'll probably be pretty careful. You can't lose for $200

BTW. I put a Timney Calvin Elite Trigger in this set-up and set at 1# it is amazing. The best timney yet.
Also, the PTG action... the fluted bolt was terrible and I asked them to replace it with a sold bolt. Save your money and buy a defiant action. OR, truth be told... I was at the shot show and tried virtually every action I could, the defiants felt the best and the Remington 700 in stainless steel with an engine turned bolt was practically right there and the Winchester 70 with Jeweled bolt action was also right there. The HOWA 1500 stainless action was not far behind. and I tested them in magnum length actions to try to get them to bind when starting to close from fully retracted. The defiant is ridiculous good and so is the Remington. I hated Remingtons for the longest time, a diehard winchester fan until I got the new stainless Long Range 5R, I highly recommend it. Get it in a 6.5 if you must, a 264 Win Mag if you want to kick ***. Put a brake on it. FWIW.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
