Thread: M595 Mcmillan fit

  1. #1

    M595 Mcmillan fit

    Ive got a Mcmillan for my M595 and it seems tight on the front recoil lug. When I tighten the front action screw it is a resistance fit with the stock and to remove the stock I have to "wiggle" it free.

    Is this as is should be? Am I not used to precision fit or is it too tight?

    My 590 fits just right in the SH McMillan stock I picked up. Don't have to prise it out of the stock at all. Not sure if the stock has been adjusted at all and the rifle isn't with me at the moment to check.

    Cheers,

    IMHO they should never be 'wiggle' tight, that might end in a split stock. they should fit perfectly, not lose and not tight. the front action screw should screw losely until it meets a firm final resistance, a gradual tightening means it's not 'stress free'.

    I suggest you either glass bed it yourself, but learn how first! or get it glass bedded by someone who knows..

    Just IMHO.

    Ive tried it on the .243 and 7mm08 and they are the same. Like I say, a resistance fit but a fit nonetheless.

    The one on my 17 rem fits a treat. Mind on my stock its done away with front recoil luck and a pillar is bedded in the front

    A snug fit should be fine. I've bedded my 270 m695 mcmillan at the reciol lug and used chemical metal, the recoil lug sits very snug within the stock and bed, essentially doing exactly the same job as a pillar. great accuracy from a simple job, and done mainly to keep the barrel well away from the forend due to extra weight of moderator.

    both my 595, Mc stocks on both the 6mm br and the 6ppc where all a tad tight but both are still fitted and being used daily,

    no issues at all.

    What macmillan stalk is it that fits the m595? I have a 243 m595 and always thought about a stock upgrade. But could never figure out which macmillan stock would fit. Any help?
