I hope this may help a few people when trying to decide on colours.

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 :rolleyes:

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. :)

This is EXCELLENT, chaps!!

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!

best wishes,

Finman

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?
