Default Savage Ashbury in .308 finished

Hey All,

Well She's finally complete and ready to head to the range. 24" Savage Ashbury in .308, Magpul PRS Stock, Nikon M-223 mount lapped and carrying a 5-25x50 Zeiss Conquest HD5 with a Z1000 Reticule, a Precision Armament M11 Severe Duty muzzle brake and 9" Bipod. I can't wait to see how she shoots out at distance.

sweet looking rifle OP.
How much do you think the muzzle brake is going to help with the recoil?

That length of pull looks really long.

Not sure I do know it's the 4th best muzzle brake on the market according to the precision competitors I talked too. The others were nice but some of the prices were ridiculous and the others just didn't make me get a boner lol..

Length of pull IS really long not sure what I' am going to do there might just be an insert added I don't need. The buffer tube is the stock mil-spec carbine one not sure if it makes a difference. Maybe the A2 doesn't need the adaptor and might be shorter? Anyone else use the PRS stocks might be able to chime in.

I had the prs stock on my LR308 and took it off. It made the LOP too long for me.
I use the acs stock now on my LR308.

You could definitely change out pistol grip to shorten it up some

Yeah the LOP isn't so much the issue per se rather the eye relief from the scopes a bit far back. Will take a better look when I get home haven't had the time to take the stock off and screw with it. I do still have the stock CTR sans cheek riser but hopefully I can get the PRS to work.

LOP and eye relief are equally important. The rifle must fit you.

Adjust for the proper LOP because your body position and cheek weld on the PRS depends on it then adjust for eye relief.

The PRS is intended to butt up against the receiver, so that adapter and folding mechanism add length you don't want. You might have to saw some of that stock off.

Might be I' am just used to shooting the AR nose to handle so this is a bit different for me. From the pictures I' am seeing and talking to buddies the cheek piece is just that not an edge of your mouth piece like I shoot my AR if that makes sense. I can see the whole scope from edge to edge while on the rifle. LoP is pretty comfortable for me prone and on a makeshift rest.

As a side Not I disassembled the stock and see no way to shorten the LOP or adjust the cheek piece forward at all. It requires one of the included spacers and there's no horizontal adjustment of the check piece.

Isn't the butt stock replaceable, with any available AR stock?
That might be the easiest solution

It is... it came with a CTR but no riser. I' am not the only one that runs a PRS on an Ashbury or a RPR. I think most like me are just used to a standard long rifle stock or an AR. These chassis like the RPR are really a hybrid then add the folding mechanism. I finally got a chance to take it outside and it's nice . The rifle is comfortable both prone unsupported and on a pod. I do have to get up on the stock a bit but it probably starts about mid cheek. If only it had a vertical adjustment for the cheek piece lol guess that's gen 4 :<). What I get for getting a compact scope a bigger scope and more eye relief on it would help a lot.

Most folding stock chassis are designed to be used with a carbine length stock to be able to obtain the correct LOP.

Length-of-pull is measured from the front face of the trigger to the rear of the buttplate.
The pistol grip has no bearing on LOP.

The LOP is the problem.
The action has the scope mount on it in such a location that when the stock's LOP is correct, your eye relief can be adjusted to be correct by sliding the scope in the mounts.
Because your LOP is a couple inches long, you are not going to be able to get the scope close enough to your eye with standard mounts.

The solution is a shorter stock or removing the folding mechanism to get your long stock moved closer to the action.

Hey thanks could be why Savage went with the stock. Everyone was wondering why they cheeped out on the stock like that. I still have the CTR guess I'll get a riser and try both stock out on the range. Really the only way I' am going to be able to see if it's an issues. Remember this is strictly to bench and prone so. Appreciate all the replies surprised no RPR or Savage chassis guys have PRS stocks or Luth stocks on their rigs. I assume the Luth will be to long as well?

Luth makes ones designed for carbine buffer tubes, but it will probably still be long. They aren't intended to adjust with the AR stock position, they have extending buttplates like the PRS.

Hum really looked like with it set to the closest position to the bolt it would be much shorter than the PRS.

Thanks bud appreciate it such a shame the PRS is to long very nice stock. The CTR is doing ok got a .75 riser on it seems to be ok. Would still rather have a Precision Rifle Stock on her. Too bad they couldn't come up with one like the RPR. Wonder if the Ruger buttstock would fit O.o lol.

One other nice thing about Luth-AR stocks is they are a lot cheaper than PRS stocks. Should be able to find one under $150.

I personally didn't like my Luth-AR stock and I gave it away; got it free myself and it was brand new at the time.

There is another one I've heard about that is sort of a minimalist looking stock, although it has a lot of features for a hundred bucks.

One of these would be the perfect stock for you. I have one on my Stealth with their folder and it works great. I picked mine up used.
