Im about to start a custom 308 Remington 700 build and ive been looking into precision stocks, the J. Allen really has caught my eye. Does anyone have any inputs on this stock? or perhaps a recommendation for a different stock? Any help is appreciated

That J.Allen rang a bell....I thought he was a common user on LongRangeHunting.com a few years ago...might still be. His stocks are simmilar to Joel Russo's?

Or am I completly off!



Either way the first step to picking the stock you want for you is: You tell us what you want to do with the rifle: Tactical Matches, F-class...benchrest?

Use this search and look for:

McMillan
Manners
HS Precision
AICS
McCree



those should help you pick what you want the stock to look like....then pick a shooting style.

    It's not out yet. Last I heard, it was going to be the fall until they are finally ready.... but then again, people who have been waiting on them have heard that song and dance before.

    Questions about this stock have come up a lot lately. The short answer is that they have been "coming soon" for a looooooooong damn time now with no signs that they will be available anytime soon.

    My advice to you is look elsewhere...AI (chassis system), McMillan, Manners, the list goes on for a long while.

    Okay, well you're probably going to hate it as a hunting gun.

    The gun all loaded up with optic will probably be 16-19 pounds. I've seen some of the M14 stocks from them all loaded get to about 19 lbs before.

    McMillan, Manners, and Bell & Carlson are good resaonably priced stocks for a wide multitude of uses.

    The chassis systems can get a little on the heavy side for what you're looking for, but are still a viable and worthy option.

    that date has been moving for a couple of years now. The last I talked to Lisa it was going to fall 2010 and now it is 2011. I wouldn't wait on it if I were doing a build - Manners, McMillan or AICS is where I would go. Not to mention but the JAE M1A stock is one heavy bitch so I would only imagine the same would be of the REM 700 stock.

    It's a stock, how hard is it to get someone to make it? There really isn't that much to a stock.

    I dont think its all that special really. I handled it at SHOT show and I wasnt impressed. It weights a shit ton! They have been changing the date for years now. I doubt we will ever see it.

    I would go Manners. Or McMillan as a 2nd choice.
