what your opinion of them
I have two.
Top shelf from top to bottom.
A+work. And you won't deal with a nicer guy
Absolutely outstanding work! Alex has bedded every one of my rifles for the last 20 years.
I generally use McMillan stocks (which he beds for me), but I have had a few of Alex's stocks and have seen many others. His stocks and stock finishing are top notch.
One of the best if not the best.
His bedding is beyond belief! He is the one I use for major tournament stock work.
A true “Master” Craftsman, and all around great guy also as anyone who has dealt with him will attest.
They are Outstanding .. Alex is a Gentlemen's , Gentlemen .
I concur with all above and will also say Alex genuinely cares about how the stock fits and that it's working. I have had one (of several) for years and when my body type changed he said send it back. We'll adjust. This was just in the course of conversation while I was ordering a Claro wood stock that turned out so nice I never take the rifle out of the safe.
You won't find better.
You might wait a while to get your stock built but it's worth the wait, No one can build a better stock than Alex and the quality is the best you will ever see. That's why I have 6 of his stocks. After the first I knew that's the only way to go. Later
Alex is great to deal with.
Just had Alex bed a GRS stock for me. The workmanship and business elements were both excellent. For my next build I will seriously consider one of his stocks.
Here is a picture of the one he just finished up for me this spring I’ve got another one on the way. Absolutely incredible American craftsman will not find any nicer or better person or work!
i don't own one but a friend does and its really nice, i recommend it to myself and others.
I Dont have one of his stocks, but he did a McMillan xit for me, and the bedding, fit, and finish are nothing short of spectacular! Plus, Alex is an awesome guy to deal with.
"what your opinion of them"
The fit of the adjustable cheek piece, rail, and butt plate on my prone stock from Masterclass is excellent. I purchased mine as a partially inletted stock, Alex did the barrel channel and installed the butt plate, Anschutz rail and cheek piece. I did the pillars and bedding, finish sanding and a satin oil finish. The stock fits great and will be a keeper.
You won't be disappointed. Don't know what his backlog is but his workmanship is worth the wait IMO.
Have two of his "Masterpieces" ... and absolutely The Greatest Guy to work with. IMHO The Best of the Best !!
Love my Masterclass!
