Silhouette stock for hunter rifle.

Post by nemo »

Greetings all,

could you please suggest several producers of stock that could be inletted for a Remington 700 action?

Based on the dimensions measured on my air rifle, I appear to be a mutant and would like to find one that is as close as possible.

Kindest regards,

M

Hi cedestech,

eventually, I will. But first, I am trying to find the manufacturers so I can find the different dimensions and compare them with my air rifle dimensions, to select the closest fitting one.

Kindest regards,

M

nemo, most air rifles are not close in dimension to a Rem 700. It's kind of an apples and oranges thing. I can't think of two rifles in my collection that are similar in their feel except my Ruger 77/22 and my Ruger M77. Are you starting from scratch or is this a modification of a gun you already have?

I believe he means a stock that will fit him AND is capable of being inletted to a 700....

What are your requirements that are so odd? 12" LOP with 10" drop at the butt or 15" LOP with 2" drop? There are a lot of stock that fit many people.

What air rifle? 3P type stock?

Hi Another Dang 9,

thank you for the reply. As cedestec noted, I want to stock that will fit him and is capable to be inletted for a Remington 700 action.

Hi cedestec,

thank you for trying to help. I have made the (perhaps incorrect) conclusion of having odd requirements by comparing dimensions taken from my air rifle with dimensions of and by actually trying some hunting/varmint rifles. None of the ones I had an access to were even close.

The length of pull (from the butt-plate to the trigger is 12.5 inches and the drop (from the bottom of the butt-plate to the top of the cheek-piece) is 9 inches. The drop is the bigger concern, the length of pull I can adjust.

The air-rifle is Walther LG300XT in aluminum stock for 10m standing, but as you noted, I mentioned it only for disclosure how I arrived with the dimensions.

Kindest regards,

N

When I get home, I will measure the drop of my two Wooster stocks at 12.5" for you. I was thinking of selling one, and it is already inleted for a Remington 700

Thank you for that cedestech

On my smallbore rifle, with Wooster's Pharr type stock, there is ~7.0 inches of drop at 12.5 inches length of pull.

My 700 stock I got used and was sold to me as his version of a hunter style stock, but I am not sure he made it. On this style hunter stock, inleted for a Remington 700, I am measuring ~6.5" of drop.

I am listing 12.5 inches to the beginning of the trigger guard since the Remington 700 stock has no trigger to measure to.

Send me a PM if you are interested in the 700 stock and I can send you some pictures.

No one makes a stock with 9" of drop (at least not yet) because up until a few years ago, drop was limited to 7 inches by the rules.

HI ALL ,

I am not sure IF you know this ....
you go center of bore horizontally AND then perpendicular to THAT you measure down to the toe of that stock .
7 inches SHOULD be sufficient ...

the length of pull may STILL be short - 12.5 inches if need be ...

I for example require 13.25 even though I have long arms BECAUSE I have short fat fingers
I hope this was helpful

Hi GSL,

I am rather confused. I measured the way you described to arrive with the 9 inches, and I still have the center of the peep sight 2 inches above the center of the barrel if I keep my head up. So, maybe I am a mutant after all.

Kindest regards,

M

memo,
I've been following this and wonder what you meant by "the peep sight" is 2 inches above the center of the barrel. You're going to put a scope on this, right. The scope can be at a height as described in the rules which would be considerable higher.

Hi ppkny,

indeed I will use a scope. What I was describing was the dimension taken from the air-rifle. Since for the High Power Hunting Silhouette Rifle the bottom of the scope can be at 1.5 inch, and considering a 1.0 inch diameter scope, the center of the scope will be at 2.0 inches, just like the peep-sight.

Does it make sense?

Kindest regards,

N
