Bell & Carlson makes this stock for Weatherby. In other words it is the OEM stock Weatherby offers on their entire Mark V and Vanguard line-up. Mark V owners can buy the 6963 and fit their barrel or select from available contours, your choice depending on inventory on-hand and your time requirements. Rem 700 LA owners buy the 2963 for a drop-in on sporters, fit your magnum barrel.
At a weight of 2-2 1/4 lbs. (depending on model and barrel channel) and the full length aluminum, they are ideal for extreme, hardcore hunting situations. My rifles have remained zeroed in them literally for 5+ years and thousands of miles.
As with all Medalists, Uncle Mikes™ swivel studs are included as is the beautifully fitted Pachmayr® brand Decelerator® recoil pad, arguably the best pad and studs money can buy.

With an aluminum skeleton running not just the length of the action but from the bottom of the grip to the forend tip (the forward swivel stud actually threads into it), these are possibly the finest aluminum-bedded hunting rifle stock on the market today, and certainly the best value. Reliable over a temperature range of -50ºF to + 140ºF and covered by a limited lifetime warranty. Warranty card is included in the box with your purchase. Drop-in fit for most standard sporters, minor barrel channel or other modification may be necessary in some cases.
Stocky's take: As you can see there's a size listed to fit just about every Weatherby, if you don't see yours there call. For older German Mark V's, you'll have to special order one with the German Weatherby Lug Modification or do the mod yourself. If you own a .378 or .460 with the extra barrel lug (take it apart and look) we can order one to fit, please call or email. In short, if it's a Weatherby we can fit it with one of these, just have to let us know up-front about any special characteristics.
Weatherby Mark V 6 lug vs. 9 lug: These are the locking lugs on the front of the receiver bolt. They keep the cartridge locked in the chamber. Remove the bolt and count them if in doubt. Anything from the .257 Weatherby on up is 9 lug.
Six-lug receivers are thinner than 9 lug receivers, not shorter (I measured them at a recent SHOT Show), 6 lug units are standard diameter rounds like the 30-06, .240 Weatherby Mag, .22-250, etc.., but please do take a moment, remove your bolt and simply count them.
Weatherby Medalists come in several versions & barrel contours: #1 Contour = 6963 ; #2 = 6349 and #3 = 6500 for example. All of these units have the pressure pads in the tip per Weatherby spec. #1's are easily adjusted to #2 and #3 with ordinary sandpaper (instructions). 6963's are therefore especially popular for those that prefer to float their own barrel. Similarly, if we are out of 6349's in the color you want and you don't want to wait, get a 6963 and float your own barrel. If you don't see the specific unit listed you need please call.
Most folks with Rem 700's are considering these, the Classic Checkered Style units, the Ultra-Lite Riflestocks and the H-S Precision Pro-Series Sporter stocks when an aluminum-bedded composite is in the plan. Standard chambered long action models drop-in for the most part, magnum barrels and the fluted sporters must be fitted (they have a magnum taper), the channel is a bit to tight, but that should be little effort. Not for Sendaros or varminters, the H-S Precision PSV107 we carry is the ideal stock for your 700 LA hunter with a thick fluted barrel. I'll give you the advantages of this stock and you make the call: 1. These are slightly larger yet seem to weight a bit less. 2. They fit large hands better. 3. They look better with big objective scopes than the thinner B&C checkered units. Bell & Carlson
