Stocks - Arctic Warfare:


Can anyone out there tell me where I can obtain the adjustable stock which is like on the Arctic Warfare tactical rifle. Or is that stock style only available as a complete rifle?

AL, the way the AW stock is set up, you really can't use it on anything else without some major work. There is an aluminium block that the reciever is bolted to that extends foreward to the bipod and back to the butt plate. The plastic part that you can see is just something to hold on to. To use this on another rifle you would need to make one of the internal rails to fit your rifle as it's glued to the AW and is intended as permanent. I think GSI had replacement plastic pannels.

If you can't find what you want, get some of that pink building insulation foam board and make a replica of what you want and glass a mold over the top. disolve the foam with lacquer thinner and you are ready to mold your own stock pannels. The aluminium frame takes all of the stress so you are really just building a "handle" for your rifle.

Rich:

Accuracy International is now manufacturing their rifle stock to fit the Remington Short Actions. I had the opportunity to see this stock at the SHOT Show. I personally found this stock more comfortable than the UARS stocks. The stock is not cheap at around $700.00 with out the adjustable cheek piece. This accessory was in the area of an additional $150.00. Save up your money or buy a Mc Millan A-3 and have it properly bedded. Just be prepared to wait for stock delivery.

I had a conversation with the folks from Mc Millan. They have added a new inletting machine and expect to get the delivery time down to a more reasonable time frame. (Believe it when I see it.)

Bruce, thanks for the info. Al was looking for the AW stock, I'm not big on thumbholes...Thats interesting they are making the stock for the remmy, is it just a composite stock in their profile or is it like the AW rifles with the aluminium chassis and removeable stock pannels?

I did go ahead and order the McMillan A3...last august AL O told me that if I ordered then that I would have a nice christmas presant...yep, right around christmas I got the stock, only four months wait. I seem to remember it was around $400 for adjustable cheek and butt.

Rich:
The AI stocks for the Remington 700 are just like the ones on the AW, metal chassis and all.
