I have just received the first Shrike Remington 700 Right Hand BDL stock from McMillan to address any minor changes in the inletting programs. I am very pleased with the efforts put forth by Dick Davis and the team at McMillan in regard to the making this mold and bringing this project into the next phase. The production of this stock has now officially begun.
This stock was specially designed to be used for the Remington 700, Right Hand, BDL action. This stock can also be used with the Remington 700, 308 length BDL actions. By the same token a variety of 700 variants actions such as the Borden, Definace, Stiller, etc can be used with this stock design providing the rear tang of the variant has a typical Remington rear tang configuration. Additional length was given to the left rear side wall to accommodate the extended length of some Clone receivers in this area using the newer bolt stop designs and housings. This added length can easily be removed and blended into the stock with a rat-tail file for the standard 700 action in a matter of minutes. The stock features right hand "Cast Off" at both the toe and heel and a straight comb that will just allow the cocking piece to clear the nose of comb.
The butt stock is designed with contemporary style cheek piece complete with a shadow-line. The stocks architecture mimics both my other Model 70 Legend Stocks in regard to for-end length, width and cross sectional shape. The grip however is geometrically designed to be ascetically pleasing to the eye as well as offer a proper hand weld with the Remington radial rear tang shape and tang angle into the grip of the stock. This stock is designed as a hunting/sporter stock, any tactical or target application will not apply. This underside of this stock will readily accept the Remington OEM, Williams or Sunny Hill floor-plate and trigger bow assemblies. However, the underside of the stock it is not applicable to Blind Magazine application. These stocks come out of the mold with a 10" for-end, 14" length of pull and with cast off at the heel and at the toe.
