Well, this wasn't the original plan, as I just wanted to buy a 300 wsm and shoot it!!
However I have been forced into re stocking a brand new rifle As the supplier has absolutely no customer service what so ever,
the rifle was purchased at the beginning of May and to date the composite stock still has two large cracks at the recoil lug area and in the action bedding, and is flexing badly.
so I contacted 3 companies, one of which I have left over 10 messages and e-mails and have never had a response !!!. Another wouldn't entertain laminate, and once again was made all sorts of promises but then never contacted me with a price or got back to me after the initial consultation.
i wasn't asking for anything that they didn't advertise as doing on a standard basis, but this seems to be the way the uk is going.
So I said b******s, I will have to do it myself! can't rely on anyone else! obviously.
so after a lot of searching and talking I purchased a blank from Boyd's.
Well after blanking it out, I found some bits of Ebony off an old stock, by the time I had sanded, I thought I would send it for an adjustable combe and recoil pad,,,,,,,,,,
then i I thought, no s*d it, in for a penny! I made my own adjustable raiser metal work, cut the stock, ordered a but pad and then fitted it.
bedded throughout with devcon, and now shoots 3 x 180 grain into a tiny clover leaves all day if I do my bit.
it weighs in at 10 lb exactly , as you see it.
so the moral seams to be , if you want it done,,,,, Do it yourselve!!!!!
