My .17 Predator

by Dave Affleck

The Rifle – Stock
In recent years I’ve been using quite a few rifles all setup in the same stocks, using the same barrel contour, same scopes and same trigger settings.  I’ve just found a basic hunting rifle setup that works very well for me, and by having these rifles all setup very close to the same, I’ve found it easy to switch from one rifle to the other and without the need for getting “reacquainted” with things like stock fit, eye relief or trigger pull.  The result, for me, has been better shooting in the field with a variety of calibers. 

The stocks on these rifles are the Remington Classic factory pattern – both in synthetic copies by McMillan and original factory walnut versions.  The factory  Rem. Classic stock fits me well, and fits my style of carrying and shooting a hunting rifle in the field very well too.  So a call was made to the nice folks at McMillan and another Rem. Classic pattern stock (in desert camo), inletted for the Model Seven action and bottom metal was ordered.
