Thread: Bell and Carlson stock importer.

  1. #1

    Bell and Carlson stock importer.

    How does one acquire a Bell and Carlson stock (for a Winchester 70) at a reasonable price these days in the UK. Can only find one at Brownells UK but prices are ridiculous.

    403.60!! you're not wrong there. I have been looking for a new stock for my Tikka Tactical and a B&C is on the short list. These guys have a great range (not B&C) http://www.jacksonrifles.com/inventory.htm

    You used to be able to get them from RedHawk rifles in the US. Good bloke to deal with. Not sure if you can get them through him anymore.

    Redhawk rifles don't export to here anymore. Looks like it's going to be difficult or too expensive. Was also considering a Hogue stock (with full length bedding block) which you can order through their website. Any thoughts on those?

    I have a B+C from my Mod 70 7mm mag,I replaced it 1/2 a doz years ago with another one (B+C)in a diff colour.
    They are good honest stocks too.
    Dont dither,take the shot!

    Finally got hold of a B&C stock for my Winchester (Profit River Firearms in Canada will ship to the UK, 305+70 VAT, import duty and handling fee this end). I must say it's beautifully made, solid and light. Also it fits like a glove so no alterations required. My rifle was 10lb empty (with factory wood stock), now 8.6lb. Very happy, now to shoot.

    That's a real beauty. Glad you were able to source one.

    Yeah, congratulations - I tried to get hold of a McMillan stock a while ago and gave up when I found I needed in Import license to get it past homeland security... I admire your persistence!

    Took a bit of doing, I ended up contacting Bell & Carlson who put me onto the (very efficient) company in Canada. Haven't shot it yet but the reduction in weight was the main goal and will be a major bonus on a long day on the hill.
