    The subject is the stock. Like I said, not used by ANYONE worth mentioning. Now, I am not saying that a department in Woodbine Iowa is lower on the totem pole then LAPD. However, they have a tighter budget and have to bargin shop. I will reitterate my comment:

    Buy quality, cry once

    Ultimate Sniper Stock

    Gentlemen,
    I joined this site because it was founded by someone who operated as a sniper. If any of you are complaining about the weight of this stock have never obviousely carried a U.S. Millitary issue sniper rifle. Millitary sniper rifles are designed for function: Accuracy and durability the weight of the rifle is one of the last things to be considered if it is even considered at all. A USMC M40 A3 rivals the weight of most light and medium machine guns depending what optics that you are issued.

    I am not trying to make this a pissing contest about who carried what in the line of duty but if you like to fancy yourself a "Sniper" then stop complaining about the weight, bulk and the looks of something and let an honest review of a product be done.
    If you are too weak to carry around your equipment then stay back at the bench and punch paper with your Gucci Kit and keep your mouth shut.

    I am not endorsing this product by any means I just want to see an honest review done by someone who has operated as a sniper.

    A buddy of mine has one and he likes it for the price, but he is just a paper puncher. He is also a big guy, real big guy actually. I shot it once and was not impressed with it but I don't like pistol frips on a rifle. To ber honest IMHO you need to feel this one for yourself because everone is diffrent about this stock. It is NOT a McMillan stock but again you are not paying McMillan prices for the thing either. From my limited time with it it seemed sturdy, but i am far from being a trained sniper. IMHO it will get the job done, but there are better stocks out there. I wouldn't buy one because it does not fit me. Before you buy one you need to actually pick one up and see how it feels to you. If it were my choice in that price range I would go with something else.

    choate

    I have noticed i a lot of pics that a ton of people on this site are useing the ultimate sniper stock amd again I understand that most of the time it is personal prefrence in the end. I like the way the reviews are done on this site. I am actually considering buying a Choate Tactical Bolt Action stock for my rifle if they come out with one for a Savage Long Action in a reasonable amount of time. I recieved an email from Choate today stating the stock will be available by the end of the month... Lets see if they keep their word. i am expecting to get my barreled action back from Mcgowan back by the end of febuary. If the stock I want isnt available by then I might order an ultimate sniper or a B&C. I used the McMillan A1 and A3 in the Marine Corps, Great stocks, not in my budget right now and like everything else for the price there are better out there.

    Cut and pasted from my answer on a different thread about this stock, I thought it would fit in here

    Quote Originally Posted by docv_73

    Cons:

    Lots of seams and gaps in the seams, that if it bothers you need sanded or filled before painting

    the injection molding around the v-block leaves lots of little plastic fins/tails that should be trimmed

    there is A LOT of play in the action, in side-to-side fit of the Stevens 200 (I skim bedded mine in part because of that)

    The front action screw in your stock Stevens 200 may not be long enough to tighten down the fron of the stock - or even contact the threads - I had to cut down a longer one made for pilar bedding. This may be due to a bad stock that didn't recess cut in the front pillar area as a QA issue with THAT ONE stock, or it may be a QA issue with their measurement of the front recess being off

    It is a v-block - I am not a fan of v-blocks, which is the other reason I skim bedded

    The fit at the rear tang, near the safety, was a bit loose - I had to add bedding there just to get the tang to make contact with the stock

    The interchangeable cheek welds are only offered in 2 sizes, and the HIGH one is about perfect with low rings - don't what you'll do with med or high rings

    with the cheek weld in the middle or front position (you have three front to back placement options) the bolt cannot be removed on a long action rifle - probably OK in the middle for short action, but would still prevent removal in the front position

    you can combine length of pull inserts to customize that, but the screws are not long enough to place all 3 at the same time - ok unless you have really long arms like I do

    Needs to be primered with a plastic specific primer (i.e. Krylon) for the paint to adhere and wear well


    Pros:

    It is cheap

    light weight - if you like that, or want it for a field rifle...

    if not, the grip and the butt stock are hollow so weight can be added - I added a lead-shot and epoxy slurry to fill both compartments, making the finished rifle approach the 20# mark - I like heavy rifles (another discussion there is no room for here)

    3 different length of pull insert sizes, which can be combined

    2 different cheek weld pieces offering two heights, with three available front-to-back postions

    LOTS AND LOTS of great features...

    removeable Harris style bipod attachment, so you can have multiple attachments with different bipods to quickly interchange for shooting styles or positions

    ambidextrous SIDE sling mounts - I didn't like that at first but the first time I carried it like that I absolutely fell in love with it.

    hollow body and grip for adding weight

    very comfortable fit and feel

    FULL LENGTH aluminum bedding block

    injection molded around the block...

    allowing it to have integrated pillars

    good fit for the thickest barrels and thick untapered match/competion/target recoil lugs

    the vast majority of the negatives are very easy fixes, or just minor annoyances

    Overall I like it a lot, and as long as you are aware of the negatives, I highly recommend it. The extras make up for the minor annoyances, in my opinion. ESPECIALLY if you are planning to do a skim bedding anyway, it is an unmatchable stock for the price.
