Mine still hasn't shipped yet

It said to allow 10 days when I ordered it but don't they know how impatient I am!?

Well my stock has finally shipped (they debited my account, so I hope it has!), so I should have a brandspankin Medalist within a couple of days. Only problem is, I don't know when I'm going to be able to get home next to shoot I work over Easter, and with five days being public holidays I can't really afford to take them off.. I'll just have to wait I guess

Auslach,Don't you just hate waiting for a new toy.

Hopefully it will be just what you want,when it arrives.

I hate it with a passion! Even worse will be the fact I probably won't even be able to fit it to the rifle for at least a couple of weeks

Checked in at the post office today, guess what I found!? (Please excuse the crappy iPhone pics)

Initial impressions out of the box were good, the stock felt light in my hands but still very sti... rigid at the same time. (I know where that was about to end up!) It has no checkering, however the stock's texture should still provide a firm grip in all weather conditions. The B&C does not have the same 'give' in it compared to the Weatherby factory stock, and feels firmer. There is absolutely no bend or flex allowed in the forearm.

The spiderwebbing is tastefully applied over the top of the synthetic finish and although you can feel some of the larger globules, I think it just adds to the texture.

One thing that surprised me was the finish inside the stock where the bedding block was. From the factory the cutout is obviously sanded away, and the inside of the stock looks almost hollow, exactly the same as an 'Aero' chocolate bar.

The bedding block looks as if it should fit perfectly, although I'll have to wait until I'm home next to check the fit, hopefully it'll be within a couple of weeks
Uncle Mikes sling swivels are installed, as is a Decelerator recoil pad (not that the .223 kicks much anyway!) The stock shoulders nicely, and the extra give in the pad allows for a very steady hold.

Initial impressions have me very happy with my purchase, it should hopefully tighten up the groups on what is to be honest a pretty accurate little rifle already, and dress it up a bit at the same time.

Nice, really nice. It'll take you about five minutes to swap it out.

About the same amount of time it takes to slip another shrimp on the barbie.

I knew it. Time goes by faster down under. So a Metric minute is roughly .62 of an American Standard minute.

Exactly, its the same 5-to-8 ratio that we use to convert miles and kilometers... Oh and BTW Lon, the 'shrimp on the barbie' thing is just the same as the Fosters beer myth; no one down here drink that sh!t or calls them that..

They're prawns
