Thread: Synthetic stock

    Synthetic stock

    Hi all, firstly I'd like to apologize if this post is not in the correct section (maybe in gunsmithing).

    The thing is I'd like to buy a synthetic stock for a Winchester 70 cal. 270WSM, because I want to use it exclusive for stalking (I have another rifle for driven hunts), and a synthetic stock should stand better the bad weather conditions than a wood one.

    I've been looking around and found 2 alternatives:

    - McMillan HUnters Edge: About 600. Very light and has a good reputation among stalkers.

    - Bell&Carlson medalist Ultralight: ABout 300. Heavier than the McM. Aluminium block from grip to forend. Some people says the B&C flex at the tip and that affects precision.


    I'd like to read your opinions/experiences. Thanks!

    Try Jackson rifles. He always has a good 'stock'. I think that I would get a firmer stock that is not prone to flexing and suffer the slight weight increase.

    Cheers

    I like the thumb hole stock in my gallery sourced from these folk - http://www.hollandguns.com/

    The following link shows what Jackson Rifles have in stock - http://www.jacksonrifles.com/inventory.htm

    I had a problem with my Winchester 70 .270 factory synthetic stock flexing. I posted a similar thread and ended up keeping an eye on evilbay.com (the american site) after a few weeks ended up winning an as new B&C Medallist for $138 add shipping and duty and for under 190 ended up with this, And although a lot of listings say no out of US posting most will if you ask before biding

    Thank you all for the replies. I guess I would finally order a B&C stock and would save the difference for a hunt.

    Thar, I'm from Spain so I'm a little too much far from your stock. Thank you anyway!

    Cheers!
