    The rifles that I sold had Mcmillan stocks. They couldn't supply me w/an aluminum plate or recommend a vendor. I finally
    had one made locally. I never found anyone on line that even sold a close to fit blank. LDS

    Hey as much as you put into painting that stock, it would be easy to get a piece of aluminum and make a butt plate.

    HOZ53 You are so right. I called my son and he's going to cut one out of 1/2'' aluminum on the waterjet and I'm going to shape and polish it. What was I thinkin. ;}

    thanks for following. Don

    I've made these for my last few builds. Much easier to fit, albeit, this one isn't perfect...and it saves almost an ounce of weight, fwiw.
