I saw this on Sniper's Hide and just had to look at it. An aluminum modular rifle chassis.

After reading that review and reading the other thread on that board. I think I have finally found the stock solution that I have been looking for. :-D What are your experiences with this stock? Thanks guys!

Yeah what he said (points up) They are working on it as we speak, as for listening to the end user, I went through a thread where Scott, Owner, really does take everything that you say into consideration, for suggesting future development and options. That's why I have to say that if anyone is getting my business for a stock, it will be him at the top of the pack.

Just so we are clear, are you an employee of said manufacturer?

I doubt it. Scott Mcree and mcree precision is a one person operation AFAIK. He bought one of my shooting mats I was selling and we had a pretty in depth conversation. He is one of those guys that will listen to the user, and almost immediately implement changes. He's a good dude.

I've been on cal guns for a while now. To answer your question no. I'm in Poland right now working on my medical doctor degree, but have been researching a build for a tactical rifle that I am going to work on with my brother during the summer when I come home. My brother and I have settled on a Remington 700 action, with the donor rifle being a yet to be purchased SPS Varmint in .308. I posted a thread the other day on the build that I was going to go with, which was going to be an AICS 1.5 Remington 700 action, problem is that I am a lefty, and AI isn't making left AICS yet. Point is that I stumbled on to McRee's stocks while trying to get peoples thoughts on my build over on Sniper's Hide. I was just so stoked about reading the review by Long arm on Sniper's hide that I spent the next 3 hours reading up on this guy's stock design and going through google reading reviews, which is bad because I have a quiz I should have been reading for in Embryology and an exam to study for, our Gross Anatomy final.

Point being This guy's stock has the adjustments that I personally view are important in a precision rifle stock as well as durability and modularity for adaption to "mission specific (tacticool ninjas feel free to chime in at any time)" requirements. I had been thinking long and hard about the stock because I did not want to bed the rifle as I was planning to keep this rifle project as a diy as much as possible. That pretty much eliminated the McMillian and HS Precision stocks from the get go for me. The McMillian A4 is still one nice looking stock though. The option that I like best, that remained was the AICS system. It's chassis does not require bedding and it has a DBM set up without me having to buy bottom metal for my Remington 700 action. If I had money I would just get a custom action based off the 700, but medical school is kinda stifling in the financial aspect, hence the SPS varmint donor action, trigger, and barrel. This stock has the advantage of not requiring bedding like the AICS, the modularity that none of the other stocks on the market have, and can be made for a lefty. Or in my case I think I might have both sides inleted so that I can place either a left or right handed 700 action in it. I am not sure on that though as it may weaken that area of the stock.

I hope this clarifies the fact that I am not an "employee as it is 6:06 am in Poland and I need to read the "male reproductive system" for embryology. No being a male has no real advantages as I do not know the specific cells and tissues that are in the reproductive system... I just thought that the Cal gunners in our rifleman's forum deserve a look at this different stock system.

p.s. this is a the thread that I had posted in sniper's hide and here on the previous build options that I was going to go with:

http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=87309

This thread was of one that got me into long range shooting, I read an article by Zak Smith on the .338 Lapua and I still want to have a .338 rifle, but just too expensive to shoot as a beginning long range rifle.

oh just an after thought, putting a MMG or a ERGO Tactical DLX Grip w/ Palm Shelf seems pretty cool :-) this grip reminds me of the PSG-1's grip. Too bad we can't get a PSG-1 here. oh well.

haha thanks, It'll be an EU degree, with the option of going back to the states after I take my USMLE's. It's cheaper than the states and it's a whole new cultural experience, and all the girls in Poland think it's cool that you're from Cali too!

I'd take an SR-25 over a PSG-1, as much as I love HK.

Why are you so against bedding the rifle? It's not that hard of a process and a good smith can do it fairly cheap. I bedded a target .22lr and it wasn't bad at all. It's not permanent, either. If you ever want to switch actions, you just grind it down and bed again.

I personally do not have anything against bedding. I just feel that it's on additional step that can complicate things. I like doing things right the first time and doing it in as little steps as possible. Bedding requires some form of mixing, and applying and requires some sort of artistic talent of which my genes seem to be missing. I have the Sry gene (dictates gender on the Y chromosome), I can work on things that require a wrench, hammer, and power tools, but applying an epoxy substance to a fiberglass glass stock is just asking for trouble on my end.



Ahh the SR-25 That is in deed a nice gun :-) We can not get that in Cali either I believe.

It sucks.

Building a highly accurized rifle takes more than putting action + barrel + stock, even with good parts. I would suggest hiring a competent smith, otherwise you're wasting money on parts that won't perform to their potential.

Step 1: Spec the rifle to a gunsmith and pay the man.

Step 2: Pick up complete rifle.

Thats about it.

I'd have preferred you invent a step 3, but yeah, I agree. ;) Maybe step 2 is wait patiently.
