User name is IanB I think :) I have a massive post count of about six, but read the forum pretty much everyday.


Word of warning to anyone choosing colours from the McMillan website, some of the colours on their colour chart are not what you get in real life, as I have just found out.

I saw my A5 the other day and had it marbled in medium green and light gray, the light gray looks very close to off white on the McMillan website, but believe you me it's very very gray. My stock looks hideous and will be going to see Mr Clark for a bit of a make over, if I manage to get some photo's of it I will post them on here.

hi ian thinkin of a new stock,in 70% medium green and 30%grey as seen on page 4of this topic
what is the best way to order percentage of colour?ie send photo .i dont want to order stock
colours and wen it comes,is completly different to what i have ordered. many thanks LEE

If it was me , and I wanted a nice looking , green / grey mable camo , I would copy the Canadians ( C3A1 ) , and go 70% OD green & 30% Grey and be done .

50% olive 25% black 25% med tan 4 hours with 1200 wet&dry 5 minutes buffing and a liberal spray of back to black, not to mention a four month wait and a 400 bill, was it worth it, hell yes ;)

Mods any chance of making this a sticky?

Hi Elwood, I have just ordered an almost identical stock to yours. Would you mind explaining how you acheived the excellent finish please?

Hi,

I came across this blog post showing a lot of McMillan patterns. Thought it would be a good addition to this post.

Hey, I just finishing compiling a massive photo gallery of over 200 McMillan stocks to help people find their perfect color ratio. I thought you guys might find it helpful.

Cant understand why people camo up there rifle but leave a big black scope on top what's the point you might as well not do the stock in the first place

Hi folks, thinking of ordering a McMillan Stock with a swirl. What do we reckon about 50% olive, 25% Medium Tan and 25% Dark Grey?
