Not built, but under construction as we speak 17 rem on a rem action with a lothar-waltar barrel and a russo stock.
Fergal white is building it for me. I saw one he had just finished last week on an Accuracy international chassis with a huge stainless barrel, absolutely stunning.

Lads do any of you have a Karsten adjustable cheek piece on your rifle. They are easy enough to fit but are the good. Don't have the money at the moment to get a custom job done (yet) so need something to do the job for the moment. Its to go onto a Savage FTR i have on the way.

Or any advice on any alternatives.

Was going to ask about prices on the stocks but 8 MONTHS. No thanks. Too long to wait. Okay if you have the patience or are hugely into your hunting/target work but i'm afraid its too long for me.

Out of curiosity, (pm if you like) what would be the average price to have a cheek raiser and adjustable butt plate put onto a factory rifle.
