The perfect hunting rifle stocks, our bestseller MCS-EH1, and the all new MCS-UC Plus.

The MCS-EH1 hunting 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. 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 #7 / M24 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 new MCS-UC-PLUS rifle stock has all the great features as the MCS-UC with the added ability to accept a Remington 700 style long action and up to a Proof Lite Sendero barrel profile for that perfect starting platform for a classic lightweight magnum mountain rifle. Our aim was to produce a stock manufactured by modern technologies and material for durability and accuracy while still maintaining the custom feel and shape of a high-end, handmade, classic wood stock.

MCS-LRH (Long Range Hunter)

The new MCS-LRH stock was developed for the modern long range hunting enthusiast looking for the ultimate light weight adjustable hunting stock.  This is the perfect platform to start that dream precision hunting build or for competitors to build that light weight competition gun for the new long range precision matches like the NRL Hunter Series.

This stock is fitted with a hybrid version of our popular light adjustable spacer cheek system. While not quite as adjustable as our standard KMW adjustable hardware, you still have the ability to fine tune the stock for that perfect cheek weld while saving almost a one pound on the total build weight when compared to a EH1A stock.

  • The average weight of the stock is 30 to 33 ounces with standard configuration of ½” premium, lightweight recoil pad and 3.5” ARCA rail. The weight will vary depending on inlets, additional hardware and recoil pad options.
  • All LRH stocks come standard with 3.5” ARCA rail mounted in front of mag well to achieve optimal balance
  • Full 100% carbon fiber shell
  • Narrow low-profile fore-end, accepts up to an M24 barrel contour
  • Available in all elite and standard camo and finishes
  • The MCS-LRH is designed for all Remington-based right hand actions, it can also be ordered in left hand version with a reinforced traditional bolt notch.

Another main feature of this stock is that they all come standard with a 3.5” long arca rail. The fore-end of the stock is actually designed around the Arca rail. The rail is mounted on the bottom of the low profile fore-end directly in front of your M5 style bottom metal of choice. It actually wraps around the nose for a perfect show-line. By doing this it allows the rail to sit as far back and as close to the bore of the rifle as possible, this makes for the perfect balancing point when the gun is mounted on a tripod in the field for taking precision shots while still allowing the extraction of a detach magazine.

The action area of the stock is lowered so there is no need for a port or side bolt release cut to fit most actions. By not having to cut the port or side bolt release out of the shell; we can maintain maximum strength while still keeping the overall weight super low.

  • The new MCS-LRH also features a molded in bolt notch. By doing a molded in bolt notch we are able to reinforce this area of the stock for maximum strength while still keeping the overall weight super low.
  • Stock has dual ambidextrous thumb shelves
  • Greatly reduced overall size of the grip. The overall thickness of the grip was reduced while building up key areas in the palm swell to make it very comfortable for even the largest hands.

ELITE HUNTER

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 Remington 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.

The forend is 1.75” wide at the tip and rounded to a beaver tail that is flat and wide enough to accept a #7 / M24 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. For a complete list, please check out our online stock builder »
