Where is the best place to get a stock for this rifle. I have a SPR and it has a Mcmillan stock on it but they are really expensive. Looking a good stock for the PBR XT 20" barrel action I am getting. Also if anyone would like a DBM set up instead of floor plate set up I would like to trade feeding parts including the magazine. Thanks.

for an inexpensive stock i like the houge stock that comes with the PBR. a mcmillan or manners is really the only two other stocks i would consider for a tactical rifle.

how much do you want to spend? what will you use the rifle for? what don't you like about the houge stock?

I don't know much about

the hogue stocks they are supposed to come with. CDNN did not have any in stock..... So I was looking to see what else fits. If you have the hogue stock is it pillar bedded or full length pillar bedded and what kind of recoil pad does it have? I am going to use it for a 600 and in gun. I have a 6X IOR I am thinking about putting on it or a 1.5X6 Burris I have not decided yet. IOR has great glass but not a variable. Thanks for any information you can provide.

Yes there are 2 kinds of stocks from hogue

I guess I will wait and see what kind of stock CDNN is selling next week. Is your stock sturdy enough for a little abuse? CDNN has a lot of barreled PBR XT actions that were made in the CT plant brand new but since they moved to SC they got rid of all the CT barreled actions and CDNN bought the whole lot. Good prices also for anyone that wants a PBR barreled action all is needed now is a stock.

Just google

cdnn and get their number to call up and ask for Ken he is a good guy. They are selling the ones marked CT since they are in SC now. They are the fluted barrels also in 20 and 24 inch. I am willing to give the Hogue stock a chance after reading your post. I thought about a Mcmillan but remember they are not pillared or bedded. Check out snipershide they have a big thread on the firearms for sale listing.

i saw that sale and wondered the same thing. i really am looking to get on but want a more adjustable stock than the hogue stock. i was looking to see if the would fit any of the hs percision stocks.

arent these actions based on the wichester model 70 actions? and if that is the case will they fit on stocks made for the model 70?

i have a pbr with the hogue stock, it seems to be alright but the front of the stock flexes alot. it is full floated and does not contact the barrel but i don't really like the flex.

I have the floorplate bottom metal now

I ordered a Ross thumbhole laminated stock unfinished for $114 shipped. I will have to inlet it for the bottom metal but I really like it and it will give me a good project to do this month.

I picked up one of the FN PBR XP barrelled actions in 300 WSM from CDNN.

I got a Hogue overmolded stock for a Winchester Short Action. This has a box mag instead of a detachable mag.

The Trigger and Floorplate assembly area on the stock had to be inletted a good amount to get a flush fit and to get the action to bolt in.

I would say I removed about 3/16" from all of the contact areas including lowering the aluminum pillars in the stock. Took me about two hours of very slowly adjusting and fitting and adjusting to get it right.

Once I got the trigger and floorplate assembly properly fitted it all went together perfectly.
