    Review Choate New Tactical Stock - Rem 700 Tactical

    Choate's New Tactical 700 BDL stock.


    The Specs:

    The stock is made of Rynite polymer and is injection-molded around a precision CNC machined full length aluminum bedding block makes a solid rigid stock. The action is rigidly held by the V-shape aluminum bedding block, the barrel floats freely and it features a 1.25" thick rubber recoil pad that has two LOP adjustment spacers. The two removable .25" & .5" spacers enable increasing the length of pull from 12.5" to 13.25". The forend has a 1.25" (3.2 cm) barrel channel for custom bull barrels. The bottom forend is a wide 2.4" and has a 10.5 rail that accepts a bipod adapter that's supplied. Recessed Uncle Mike's sling swivels are incorporated on both sides of the forend and both sides of the butt stock which provide for a number of practical carry modes. Retail price around $225. Also offered for the Savage 10 DBM rifles. Will not fit the AccuStock rifles unless you do some widening of the trigger guard inlet.

    Weight: 3.7 lbs

    Pictures, a Few Thoughts & Facts:

    There are not any good pictures available on the net that shows what this stock really looks like in person. The pictures that are available make it look thin, cheap & unappealing. It's far from it in my opinion as you will see by the pictures.



    Choate Tacical stock, Remington 700 SPS Tactical 20" bbl, 308, Sightron SIII 6-24X50 LR MD, Burris XTR Low rings, EGW 20moa base, Harris Notched Leg 6"-9" bipod, BlackHawk cheek pad, Arms Tech LLC Mag Xtender.



    The Stock was a drop in fit and it took less than 5 mins to install. No fitting was required and the aluminum bedding block didn't need any clean up that is needed on some B&C and HS Precision stocks. Fiberglass molding can be very messy. Weather this will be the case with all of them, only time will tell. One problem I did run into is, the stock is thicker in the rear and will required a longer screw. Luckily I had a B-Square 700 BDL/ADL replacement screw set. It had a longer rear screw that was a perfect fit. This is an issue that Choate needs to address by offering a longer screw with the stock because the rear factory screw is clearly too short for this stock. Overall the stock was a nice fit and the back of the recoil lug fit snug against the Aluminum block, which is what you want.






    A top view of the stock shows the with wide 1.25" barrel channel and very thick sides. This stock is well made, heavy & built like a tank as you will see. I gave the butt of the stock a few good whacks with a hammer with no damage what so ever. Try that with a fiberglass stock.




    A view of the bottom of the forend with the 10.5" rail & bipod sling adapter supplied. The adapter slides freely in the channel and is locked down when you attach a bipod and torque it down tight in the position you prefer.




    A look inside the at the V-Shape aluminum bedding block. It naturally centers the action and makes sure the action has full contact with the block. It's also great for those who would like to bed the action. The V-Shape block would be excellent for holding a good amount of bedding compound for a perfect fit.




    SxS look @ the Choate Tactical beside a $400 HS Precision vertical grip stock. You can see that the grip of the stock is very large and some may find that it is a little too large for their liking. This is something to consider before purchasing.




    Another view of the two stocks SxS. The middle of the grip is about the same width as the one on the HS stock. It's the bottom of the grip that is much large where you put your ring and little finger and this makes the grip feel larger. Notice the thickness of the Choate stock compared to the HS stock and the HS stock is no wimp in it's on right. The thickness of the tough Rynite polymer it's made of makes it virtually indestructible. The Choate Tactical stock is well made & built like a tank. Choate Stock Weight: 3.7 lbs - HS Stock: 2.5 lbs




    The last view of the Choate stock on a 700 Tactical. The recoil pad is nicer than most pads that comes on much more expensive stocks.





    Final Thoughts:

    The New Choate Tactical stock is well made and offers a lot for the money. It is made of virtually indestructible Rynite polymer. Being a plastic stock and heavy will turn some people in the other direction from the get go. This stock is different from other plastic stocks as shown. The lower cost of the stock will offer a good alternative for those on a budget. I feel for the most part Choate did a very good job on this stock.

    I would be willing to bet that Savage will be offering these stocks next year on some of their tactical precision rifles, maybe even Remington.

    Thanks for posting the review. I think I may give this one a try. Worst case scenario I can always sell it. Where did you get it from? If you don't want to say please PM me.

    Kind Regards,

    It was purchased directly from Choate. Check the net also because I have have seen them for sale for around $175 with shipping. That's cheaper than I can sale them for.

    Thanks for the great review Max. I'm having a Savage built on the Choate tactical stock by Oneeyedmac, so it's comforting to hear that it's a decent stock. I see what you mean about the thicker grip, how comfortable is it to shoot?

    Overall I like it and plan to keep it on my rifle. In my opinion, the Hook on the butt is a little far forward and the grip is a little wide. It's a heavy stock but that's OK because the 20" bbl 700 Tactical needs a little extra weight.

    I think you will be very pleased with it unless you have very small hands.

    That's a very good price.

    That's good to hear, I have relatively large hands. As for heavy, it remains to be seen how she handles with a heavy 20" Mcgowan.

    It seems like Choate likes heavy stocks huh? I handled a folding choate 10fp, and that thing was surprisingly heavy..

    Thanks again Max, and I'll post pics and review mine when I get her

    Hi:
    What magazine is in the bottom of your rifle? And how much does the
    stock weigh in at?







    Thanks

    wow, adjustable rail and all. it can't be hard to take a 1/4 inch off that stock with sandpaper and then texture it or something. if you say it is durable and well made, than well... it could be something to look into. I do wish the HS vertical grip stock had a butthook.

    I haven't weighed the stock but the Rynite (sp?) is a good bit heavier than fiberglass. It's similar in weight to an Ultimate Sniper. I like it.
