    i am going to start a new build and am wondering if there is anyway to get components faster. i want to order a mcmillan htg stock with an adjustable cheek piece. are there any suppliers that have these on hand so i can get one faster than waiting the 6 months. does anyone else have this style stock that is of the same quality. i would even buy a used one do you guys know of any places to buy them used?

    You might try and pm Bailey 1474 or Lerch on this forum or call them (Ask for Bill or Steve 1-800-522-3314). I think they carry a few. Manners also makes some nice stocks.

    I will never deal with them again ,their customer service sucks !!

    I would recomend the Manners stock and the adjustable comb they use is far better than the one that McMillan uses
    Manners Composite Stocks

    I like the mcmillan stocks......and probably shouldnt say this, but robertson composits stocks are nicer IMO. Not to mention if I am not picky about color.....which I am not.....I get them real quick.

    I know it's already been mentioned. But, Manners! Great products, great service, and short wait.

    I would check Mcmillans site under Specials. Otherwise 4 or 5 months is definitely worth the wait!

    I own stocks from McMillan and Manners. I like them both; the wait for a McMillan is too long - but that is just my opinion.

    Manners does not currently make an HTG with an adjustable cheek. If that is what you are looking for McMillan is currently the only place to get it.

    Look at what Manners does make, the KMW-designed adjustable cheek gear is excellent.
