    Post Greyboe Stocks

    Hi all,

    Has anyone had any experience with these, thinking it might be a good cheaper option to a McMillian?
    Or does anyone know where I might be able to get one from and if its overseas will I need a permit for it now?

    Cheers

    Not sure sorry, watching with interest though. Are they NZ based?

    Edit: just text read your message and it appears you donít know. All good

    Yes you will need a permit.
    I like the look of them, and now they also have their own DBM's.
    I wrote to them about a year ago and they were very responsive.
    You could try one of the McMillan agents such as Dean Maisey, alternatviely just order from Brownells, or do a special order through them, would be the easiest, but you may need to have a few stocks to offset the export fee.
    McMillan are very nice, i have an A4 stock on my M40A5 clone.

    Out of the States you will need an export permit, you should need an import permit to get it into this country now

    Grabbed from Rifleshooter.com

    GrayBoe was founded by former Navy SEAL Ryan McMillan. Ryan isn’t a stranger to the stock market, McMillan’s family is known for making some of the finest fiberglas stocks on the market. Ryan sought to lower the price of quality rifle stocks and spent two years developing the proprietary construction process they currently use. According to Ryan, “during that time, we had searched in every place we could find for some company, in any industry, that would give us some insight on how develop this process. We found no company that had anything close, so we did it with nearly no guidance. To this day, the process is so proprietary, we tell the world very little about how we are able to make stocks the way we do.”

    You’ll notice the external appearance of the Renegade matches that of the McMillan A5. Even thought McMillan and Grayboe are different companies, they do share a lot of common history together.

    Here is another McMillan company.

    MC3 Stocks

    https://mc3stocks.com

    Guessing that TPIM = thermoplastic injection moulding or thermopolymer injection moulding.

    Thanks guys, sounding like it might be easier to just save a bit more and get a McMillian.
    I haven't attempted the export papers side of things from the us but I don't imagine it'll be too easy.

    (AKA Ken of NZAR15 rebranded, for those that missed it. He's a great to deal with)

    Yeah I have since seen on the good old book he is going to be getting them.
    Looks like that's solved my dramas, time to pick a model and send him a message.
