    XBolt Southfort Carbon Stocks

    Ive just packaged my XBolt Stainless 270WSM (22") barrel and action for a trip to Southfort for some pioneering surgery.

    They have developed a carbon stock for the XBolt. This will be one of the first fittings.

    I'm very pleased because I like this rifle but have always felt it needed to be lighter. Im not aware of any other after market carbon stocks for the XBolt anywhere else in the world. Go us Kiwis!

    What stock are they basing it off @Tahr? I liked the NZ Hunter one I had from them but I loathe the other more popular one that has a pistol grip made for a giant

    Yes, I must. We have a good load for it. And actually, I have a featherweight Mod 7 glass stock but you would have to have it first and bed it.

    I like to 7mmsaum/300saum and 270wsm because I think they are my comfortable level for recoil (suppressed and unsurpassed) in a light rifle.

    To be honest, Im not certain. I will check now that you have raised it. I think just the standard Tika/Rem one.
