McMillan marbled stocks + camoflauge
Posted 06 April 2008 - 01:50 PM
I have been trawling the net to find a suitable marbled or camouflage patterned style stock and thought it might be a good idea to save all the pictures I found. I have purposely stayed away from bright coloured stocks as this is a varmitting site. Where possible I have put above the picture the colours and the % used, on others I have made an educated guess (McMillan are very helpful in telling you the colours and % if you show them a photo)
The first batch of photo's is of McMillan marbled stocks, the second set will be of McMillan, GAP and LTM (both durocoat I think?) camouflaged patterns.
If anyone has any pictures to add then please do, if possible please include colours and %
The third if it proves popular and if I'm not taking up to much bandwidth will be of a few stocks that caught my eye, either for good or bad reasons
50% olive 25% black 25% gray
50% light tan 25% olive 25% medium tan
60% black 40% olive
70% olive 30%black
60% tan 20% light tan 20% dark tan
50% olive 25% black 25% tan
60% black 20% olive 20% light gray
colours olive, white and black % not known
olive and white, 50/50% guess
olive and black 70/30% guess

with some trepidation I placed an order for a McMillan A5 for my Sako 75. When it came to the colours I did not know what to do so, off the cuff, I chose Black, Olive and Tan as the three colours to be marbled... Seeing what you have all posted, particularly those with the combinations on the colours I chose, make me rest at ease that the rifle will look excellent with the (random) choice that I made!
Looking forward to the stock now (won't be here this side of September...) and when I have it I shall post some pictures too!
Better have a gun and not need it, rather than need it and not have it

Some of them marble ones look ok. But the ones with the big jigsaw type patterns and strips are bungee crap .Who would do some of them things to a perfectly good rifle . Call me old school but them look like the SAXOS AND CORSAS THAT THE YOUNG TEAM ARE RUNNING ABOUT IN UP MY WAY.
I was never a fan of camo/digital/stripes until I saw the GAP camo (top photo) but that is one I would consider, however some of them do look like they have been painted with a sharp stick
Finman what % did you go for?
