Default B&C Medalist

Well I just ordered a new Bell & Carlson stock for my Weatherby .223

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 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!

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..

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..

Default 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.
