    Just wanted to bump this too the top... Also what is the deal with getting one out of the states, could I bring one in my checked luggage on the plane without permits?

    They are sooooo damn good, my t3 is an entirely new beast. On the win mod 70 they came standard for a while. I have just tried to order one to upgrade my mod 70 and it will take nearly a year for it to arrive. Stocks in general are in high demand at the moment.

    I understand they are available in NZ but as with many things they are about half the price in the US. As a gun part are there any export import problems?

    Available yes, in stock potentially depending on rifle, order time 12 months or so.

    Hi i put my Parker Hale 30-06 in one not long ago. I got mine through Craftys in Hastings. Not sure where he found it but Dave is very helpful. Give him a try.

    Just got one for my T3 7mmRM. Dropped straight in. Not a lot of clearence around the barrel but still floating. Groups the same as before, but now holds the same impact point off the bipod, bags, and off the day pack with a sling. This is a big improvement. A little heavier than the original plastic stock, but this is not a bad thing on a magnum.

    My father pimped his 7-08 tikka with one and as others have said it changed the whole rifle, i reckon it points nicer and again as mentioned by others is far more rigid, the difference in weight? I'd liken it to a wood howa or a weatherby vanguard, so a bit more weight but as a trade off your shoulder won't feel it as much. I've got a b&C on my weatherby 308 and i used to flinch on a 7-08 but as yet can shoot tight groups... just goes to show what abit of hardening up and stock design can do for ya! thats my 2 cents anyway! hot barrels and stay safe during the roar
