At 22-24 oz., the McMillan Ultralight Benchrest EDGE LV is 1/3 lighter and much stiffer than a traditional benchrest stock. The outer shell is 100% graphite for low weight and stiffness.
The EDGE HV is made with traditional fiberglass cloth and will have a minimum weight of about 2.5 lbs.
The EDGE's radical forend is engineered like a structural beam for extra stiffness in the vertical axis. A molded-in barrel channel increases stiffness. Oversize siderails resist torque and improve tracking in a front rest. An ultra low center of gravity improves stability. The adjustable weight system in the buttstock lets you fine tune weight and balance, but is not designed for converting from light varmint to heavy varmint. The receiver area is filled with a new, lighter but stronger material than before. The barrel channel will accommodate the largest legal benchrest contour. There is a 1/2" flat on the buttstock, which is tapered to meet the minimum angle required by both the NBRSA and the IBS. Stocks are available inletted and un-inletted. We have two molds - one for Remington style tang receivers and one for square tang receivers (Panda, Viper, Nesika, Grizzly, Hall).
