can the mcmillan stocks be inletted further to accomodate a bigger barrel? I noticed that jwprecision has the a5s but they're for varmint contour and I know when they leave the factory it has an enamel around the fiberglass. Will milling into this enamel compromise the integrity of the stock?


also can a limbsaver grind-to-fit pad be installed on an adjustable system?

    Just do it yourself. There is nothing in the barrel channel after inletting so opening it up isn't going to change anything.

    Some will use a dowel, some sandpaper, and some elbow grease. I have also seen some use deep well sockets and sandpaper.
