    I am building a switch barrel setup using a Bighorn TL3 and Proof shouldered prefit barrels. I have yet to decide what the best lightweight stock or chassis is for hunting. Vertical grip and adjustable cheek piece are a must. McMillan? Manners? AG Composite? Chassis systems? All input is appreciated!

    Manners EH1 or AG Alpine hunter. Iota also makes one in a light weight version now but I have no experience with them.

    Ag adjustable alpine hunter. Or get a manners eh1 from Ryan Pierce with his new adj cheek hardware, only adds like 3 oz. I just picked up a krg bravo for my bighorn origin 25 creedmoor build, I really like the ergos of the stock and it only weighs 2.9# for chassis. The rifle will be 17-18# when done for prs/nrl stuff so it's NOT a hunting setup. However I did drop my lone peak ti action that has a proof sendero lite 24" barrel in, weight 7#6oz with scope rings.

    Cant' go wrong with any of those but you can't match the McMillians without spending quite a bit more.

    I have a AG alpine hunter and really like it! (not adjustable cheek)
    That Mesa arms Altitude looks really nice too!

    Maybe MPI in Vancouver, Washington has one. Lisa took over the name and started her own thing.

    There was a post in the last week or so indicating new ownership.

    Lisa is the owner, she is very helpful and was timely on e-mail communication--I have an older stock that I am working on right now and quality seems good--her quote to inlet, pillar and glass bed are very reasonable--the onine prices are for a blank, but she will also complete it if you send her your barreled action -- OP, her email is [email protected] if you want to contact her--not sure of her turnaround time right now though but she does offer some very light stocks

    Pretty good shape for stocks currently. I have one MPI from back aways, but have kind of followed the story from a distance.

    What to you is light weight? Manners, McMillian have some lighter products but haven't seen a chassis system that competes in weight to carbon fiber or Kevlar.

    A manners mcs-eh1a with a mini chassis looks like an awesome option also. 3 + pounds though
