    Default Mcmillion model 70 FW stock

    Has anyone purchased one of these stocks? I'm looking at replacing the wood stock on a stainless wood model 70 that I have. I really like the feel of the FW stocks. I just wonder if it really is a true drop in stock. Any experiences with these stock would great.

    I do not have a Featherweight McMillan, but I have a few other McMillan stocks for Model 70s. I have Supergrade McMillan, a Hunter's Edge and a HTG. Both, the Hunter's Edge and HTG are their Edge fill (graphite rather than fiberglass) and they weigh 22 oz and 27 oz respectively. The Supergrade is their magnum fill for heavier recoiling rifles and is about 36 oz ready to go. All 3 were drop in & ready to go. I've left the Hunter's Edge as I received it from McMillan, but keeping thinking I should bed it. McMillan provides almost a limitless number of options and colors for their stocks, but for a FW contour the Hunter's Edge is a near perfect combination. For a standard barrel contour I'd look closely at the Winchester Hunter. As a general purpose stock it is very tough to beat.
    Foolishness is a moral category, not an intellectual one.

    They are a true drop in. It doesn't hurt to bed them, at least the recoil lug. I think, as 1stCor says, that the Hunters Edge is just about perfect for a FWT.

    I agree, I have the Hunter Edge on my 300 RUM. I'm only a 30 minute dive to the factory so I paid a little extra and had them bed it. The attention to detail, craftsmanship and fitment is perfect. I also have the A-5 on a long range rifle. The fit, feel and function is perfect.
