Stocks? which one?

Hello all.
I recently bought a Remington 700 SPS Tactical and want to replace the stock but I'm still up in the air about which one.
My question is: For those who has a 700, which stock did you go with? Why did you choose the one you have, and what are the pros and cons?

Any info will be greatly appreciated...

Jimmy

700 stock

I left the original stock on my 700P (for now). I do however like manner's stocks...

I really like the MCS-GAT for a thumbhole tactical stock... and the MCS-T for a more traditional tactical stock.

Mcmillians are always good too.

Went with it because I found it cheap, adjustable LOP and cheekweld. plus it makes the rifle look soo badass

All the above are good. Keep in mind though, if you hunt with it, in rainy weather...sooner or later, it will slip out of your hands. There are after market adhesive/removable pads...for grip, or you can go to a wood stock...nothing like it! Good luck, and good shooting!

Wood stocks suck

It's a bolt rifle. Wood stocks swell and contract with moisture, potentially changing point of impact. Synthetic stocks are better than wood in the wet anyway, as the clear coat of a wood stock gets more slippery than an overmolded stock. Don't know what someone would be doing that causes a bolt rifle to slip out of their hands, but since this thread is over two years old, I doubt it matters any more
