Fit is key to downrange accuracy on all firearms. This past week in the NRA Women’s Network, Tips & Tactics, I discussed some considerations to make when evaluating rifle fit. One of the barreled actions that I used in the tips was set into a Magpul Hunter 700 stock.
I am a big fan of the Hunter 700 stock for many reasons- first, the length of pull (LOP) is easily adjustable from 13.0-15.0” with .5” spacers accommodating nearly any sized shooter. My LOP is actually 12.5” but the 13” adjusted LOP is still short enough to allow me to consistently mount the rifle for increased downrange accuracy.
The cheek comb height is adjustable as well allowing the shooters eye to be properly aligned with the mounted optic. The stock comes pre-fitted with a .25” riser and includes the option of a .50” and .75” to adjust weld locations for a multitude of shooters.
The stock is a true drop in fit for standard Remington 700 short actions with stock Remington hinged floor plates. It is light weight at 2.9 pounds making it a great fit for your mountain rifle.
