B&C Medalist
 
Well I just ordered a new Bell & Carlson stock for my Weatherby .223 :cool:

I chose the black and gray spiderweb Weatherby style Medalist, as I like the shape, balance and feel of the factory stock, the only problem being it flexes unbelievably, especially when I carry it with a sling. The aluminium bedding block in the Medalist should prevent this, making the rifle more accurate and easier to shoot with a sling as well as a bipod for when we go spotlighting (yes, it's legal here :))

The price will probably floor you guys, it will end up costing $410 shipped however as evidenced by some of my earlier posts, the prices down here for anything firearm-related can only be described as extortion :mad: Even so, I'm happy with my purchase as it'll improve shooting as well as dressing up a pretty plain (if workmanlike) rifle. And don't worry, I'll make sure I post pics as soon as it arrives!

Ouch! $410?! You do not want to know what they cost here. Ha.

But it is a great stock. You will love it once you get it set up. Are you gonna bed it? (hint, hint)

I've seen what they cost there! :mad:

I'm thinking I will bed it m14s, only after a flurry of PM's being sent I'm sure! My only worry is whether the glass bedding on top of the aluminum block will be worth it though.. :confused:

Congratulations Aus. :cool:

How are folks recovering down there?

Thanks CA, everything's going well.. Our national budget is going to be back in deficit for a couple of years, although by all reports we should be posting surplus budgets again by 2013/14..

Did you glass bed on top of the aluminium bedding block Lon??

RE the other picture, if I could've found the black stock with red spiderweb I would've jumped on it, my mate has a custom Weatherby with one and it looks amazing..

No, I didn't glass bed, bro.

Bell and Carlson makes great stocks.
 
They are local to me but they don't have a show room so I bought my B&C Tactical from an outfit on Gunbroker (called direct and got a Harris swivel bipod too). This is went on my Rem 700 AAC SD project:

I'm still waiting on optics to arrive and drawing up a Legal Trust for the suppressor is starting in the works. So far the stock feels very nice by most importantly it locked up and bedded solid when I torqued it down. The full length aluminium bedding is FAR better quality than the OEM craptastic Hogue Ghille Green stock that flexed at the forearm when I held it... Talk about junk... The only downside could be that they are heavy; which for me is a +. Anyway, enjoy your stock and rifle (from across the pond). I know I'll enjoy mine for ages.:)
