Hunting Stocks

ELITE HUNTER SERIES

Introduced in 2014, our line of hunting stocks, called the Elite Hunter Series, was developed to be as light as possible but still maintain the ruggedness, stability, accuracy and ergonomics of the rest of our lineup. To accomplish this, we went back to the drawing board. In the past, the composite industry was driven by aerospace technology, but in recent years, there have been quite a few advancements in the wind energy market. Off-shore carbon fiber wind turbine blades are now being made longer than 110 meters.

We took some of these advancements in materials and ideas and developed a new process for this series from lay-up to fill. To start, all the Elite Hunter stocks had to have a 100% carbon fiber shell. The second step was to develop a super light fill that would still hold up to any magnum caliber that you could throw at it. We still had to use our full sized 9/16" pillars, lightweight fill in non-critical areas and heavy fill where needed. Because the heavy fill adds weight quickly, we developed a process that can precisely control the amount of this material and place it only where it is most needed (e.g., the recoil lug/front pillar area and web area in front of the trigger).

We started this series with 5 stocks: 4 Remingto- based and 1 Tikka lite based stock. All come standard with a full inlet, ½” or 1” decel pad and a solid painted finish of your choice. The exception to this will be the Tikka T3 based stock, which comes with a hardened stainless steel recoil lug made by KRG instead of pillars. Based on the design and inlet, this lineup weighs approximately 22.5 to 26.5 ounces. There will be more to come over then next few months, including a youth stock, a safari stock and other versions for various action inlets.

MCS-EH1/1A

This stock was designed for the long-range hunter. Depending on the inlet, the standard weight with a ½” decel pad is 26 to 28 ounces. The EH1A comes standard with the KMW Terry Cross cheek hardware. We do offer the LRI cheek hardware as an option. The EH1A comes in around 2.7-2.9 lbs with a 1/2" pad. The forend is 1.75” wide at the tip and rounded to a beaver tail that is flat and wide enough to accept a #8 barrel which is about 1.125″ diameter at the tip of the stock. The grip on the stock is more of a vertical, tactical style, longer than standard with a small palm swell and overall smaller grip than our MCS-T4 stock.

The bottom of the butt has a flat that is about ¾” wide and is true running with the sides of the stock. This allows it to ride very straight and true when using a rear bag. The EH1/EH1A is designed for Rem 700 style actions, but can be inletted for Savage short actions with the Savage BDL mini chassis and other actions.
