Good looking gun. I've been wanting to get a new stock for my model 93r17G. I like the look of the leopard stocks but from some of the reviews I've read make me wary.

You will not be disappointed. Mine is under a MK II FVSR, and shoots tacks. It has 100% sold me on the ergonomics of the gun, and I will be getting a AICS 1.5 for my M700 Tac. rifle that is in 6.5 Creedmoor.

I recently put one on my Savage Mark II and I'm a convert as well. Mine came to me used and finished, so I don't know about the need to do fine tuning as some have reviewed, but once it's installed, it makes a very nice bench stock.

Can't view your image, I'm afraid. What is the weight of the rifle with that stock, now, though?

I couldn't get a picture either. I'll bet it is like this FVSR below.

How are the mounting points done?. Are the action screws simply acting on wood...or aluminum pillars?.....etc. Maybe post some pics of an empty stock "from above" so we can see? Thanks.

I did not care for mine when I had it at the time and sold it. I prefer a a scope as low as possible to the gun but here is a bottom pic of the bottom. If one were to go deep in an advanced search you will find all the photos of an unfinished stock from all angles.

We are developing a new check rest so that you can get lower.

We also just switched to a new CNC operation for inletting and its a bit different now with better accuracy and consistently thicker wood under the mounting points. I will try to get pics posted after Christmas.

I think we are very close to having a stock we can hold in inventory and slot it for either the left action or right. Our previous attempts at left actions were not the best.

Thank you! It's a pleasure to have a company own up to a problem with their product and take steps to correct the problem. Sounds like a company I want to do business with.

I can't say when but sometime in the next year or two one of my rifles is going to be sporting one of your stocks.

Will I be able to upgrade my cheek weld? Also, I tried to pillar bed the gun. I know that it is not your fault about the action screws, but is there a way you can toughen the area around the screws?
Lastly, will you be making one for CZ 455 Varmits? I'd buy one in a minute.
Thanks

One more thing, could you add a side to side adjustment like the AICS stock fo the cheek weld, so we can get directly behind the scope?
Thanks

We do now have a much thicker section of wood around the action screws. Its as thick as we can get which I think it around .4" thick.

Eventually we will get all the Cz rifles.

Not sure about the side to side ability on the check rest, that is tricky to do and keep the cost down. Looking at your picture I dont think you will be able to retro fit them as everything is now on 2" centers.

Thanks. When you get one for a CZ 455, I'd be one of the first to buy it!
