    Default Suggestions for a new light WT Synthetic Stock

    I want to replace the stock on a Remington Alaskan Ti 30-06, it is the older style with the thin barrel, and currently has the original bell and carlson stock on it. I really don't mind the stock, I just don't like the cheek piece on it, and it's not possible to sand or grind down. Was looking at High tech and Summit but wondering if you guys know of others that are lighter but stronger than the Summit.

    I have same exact rifle and was contemplating same kind of stock upgrade.

    Also considering rebarreling as well.

    I haven't pulled the trigger but was looking at a McMillan stocks.

    The High Tech stocks are weighed before pad installed, bedding/bondo, paint, etc is applied, fwiw. Have you looked at Manners stocks? I know they are making a light one now. I personally see no reason to look past McMillan anymore, unless you need a stock right away and don't want to deal with the 6-8 month wait.

    A Brown Precision kevlar will come in under a pound with a pad installed. When you get the box in the mail, you'll think it's empty.

    I have a Brown Precision graphite stock for a Remington 700 long action that is new. It weights less that 23 oz. It has a Pachmayr Decelerator pad and is ready to paint and bed.

    If you are interested in it, send me your email and I can send pictures. It weights less that 23 oz.

    McMillan has a 6-7 month wait.

    While I'm a big fan of the High Techs, I will say that a buddy ordered some of the Wildcat Composites blanks the other day and they are nice. No more work than a High Tech, which is about half of a MPI or Brown, and they are a few Oz lighter. They are also cheaper by a few bucks than the High Tech and a whole bunch of bucks cheaper than a McMillian. I've got stocks from High Tech, B&C, and Brown and work with many others at my job, I prefer the High Tech for cost, strength, weight, and wait time but there are many other good options available.
