Timeless classic "CDL" styling with checkering panels on the sides of the forend and grip. 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 -50°F to + 140°F and covered by a limited lifetime warranty. Warranty card is included in the box with your purchase. Drop-in fit for most sporters, minor barrel channel or other modification may be necessary in some cases.
Stocky's take: Most folks with 700's are considering these, the Weatherby 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 long action 700 sporters drop-in for the most part, magnum barrels and the fluted sporters must be fitted (they have a magnum taper), but that should be little effort. Not appropriate for Sendaros and varminters. I'll give you the advantages of this stock and you make the call: 1. These are the only ones that are checkered. 2. Recoil reduction is better due to the added 1/2 pound.
It's the best aluminum bedded stock on the market for L/A Brownings and all sporting 96/98 Mausers. All Winchester 70 and short action A-Bolt owners should take a look at the Ultra-Lite Riflestocks also. If you have a commercial large ring '98 Mauser sporter get the 2197, military Mauser owners should get the 2193. This stock is not appropriate for varmint-weight or Palma barrels even if modified. This stock will not work with a Mauser K98.
ATTENTION BROWNING A-BOLT OWNERS: Please Note that some short action cartridges are chambered in long action rifles from the factory so you must measure! Long Action Fits All Known Long Action Chamberings PLUS many short action chamberings. Use the 2131 If Your Receiver Measures 7 7/8" Between Takedown Screws.

- This aluminum bedded Medalist is not only accurate, it is also a great value. This is the only such stock available for Rugers, Brownings, Mausers, etc., and is an excellent upgrade or replacement stock. (Posted on 1/7/2015)
