The McHale stock was originally designed as a competition stock for use with a number of custom actions with thick benchrest type rear tangs. The generic rear tang area will require some fitting when used with most actions. It has a high, straight comb without a cheekpiece so the stock can be shot from either side. The belly of the stock is parallel to the top so it is best suited for a blind magazine or single shot rather than with a floorplate, which requires some taper to the belly. This stock works well with most Nesika Bay, Stolle, Hall, BAT, and other benchrest type actions which do not have the normal Remington/Winchester tapered style rear tang. It can be inletted for the CZ-550 Magnum with heavy target type barrels at some sacrifice in cosmetics. The McHale can be inletted for both right and left hand actions. It is not recommended for Remington or Winchester type actions.

COLORS AND FINISHES
For the finest presentation-grade surface, we suggest a painted finish. Six solid paint colors are available.
A new speckletone granite finish is also available. Choose any solid base coat color and specify either one or two speckletone paint highlights to create an attractive custom finish.
When you order any paint finish, the underlying stock is hand-sanded, primed, and painted to eliminate all surface imperfections. This is the finish most manufacturers specify for the McMillan stocks that are sold with their custom shop rifles.
The paint we use is an industrial grade, non-slip pebble finish similar to that found on power tools, office machines and industrial equipment. This polyurethane paint is the most durable we can find and is suitable for conditions found from the Arctic to the tropics. However, any painted finish will scratch when dragged over rocks, limbs and other hard surfaces. It is impervious to most gun cleaning solvents, but harsh solvents should be wiped off immediately.
Repainting an existing McMillan Stock
We can repaint any McMillan stock for our customers at a nominal charge.

Molded-In Colors to Create a Unique Marble Pattern.
Molded in colors are the most durable finish we offer. With a molded finish, the color is impregnated into the gelcoat, or exterior surface layer of the stock. All of the molded-in finishes below should be considered utility-grade. Mold lines, sanding marks, fiberglass cloth and small imperfections may be visible.
Molded-in stocks are provided with a matte finish to minimize light reflection. After receiving your stock, some customers take it upon themselves to further wetblock sand and buff the surface to achieve a polished, warm luster finish. This is particularly attractive with marble patterns.
A molded-in stock will weigh several ounces more than a painted stock due to the additional resin material that is used.
We do our best to make your particular finish as attractive as possible. However, we are limited in what can be accomplished with molded-in colors. Solid colors, especially darker ones, produce the greatest challenge, whereas the camouflage patterns tend to look better because the various colors and shapes hide imperfections. Marbled colors offer the best choice for creating a finished look with a molded-in color.
A marble finish is created by swirling two or three different colors into the surface of the stock. The result is a beautiful effect that is unique to your stock. McMillan pioneered this finish, which has become a familiar hallmark of our brand.
Choose any 2 or 3 of the molded in colors to create a unique swirled marble pattern finish for your custom stock. Literally thousands of different patterns can be created, including any you see on our website.
No two stocks are ever made alike as the marbling action is totally random in occurence.

The most popular marble finishes are shown here. Virtually any color combination is possible and some color combinations are inherently more pleasing than others.
Note that a marble finish can be used as an effective camouflage pattern when using olive green, black, gray and other common camo colors.
Each finish is done by hand and it is impossible to duplicate any particular marble pattern. Because marbling is created in the mold under pressure, patterns are random and not controllable. Specific vertical or horizontal patterns are not possible. Also, colors will change shades somewhat due to the mixing of colors while the swirling is done. Marble stocks may not be returned because of dissatisfaction with the color. However, you may opt to have us paint the stock at our regular price.
The colors on the right are used to create molded-in swirled marble and camo finishes. Solid molded in colored stocks are not available from McMillan.
McMillan Uses Molded-In Colors to create a Unique Camouflage Finish
Standard Camouflage Patterns
Eleven basic camouflage patterns are standard order items. The colors are not painted on the surface, but are molded into the stock for durability when used in extreme environments. Many military units specify this finish for their tactical stocks, with the choice of colors dependent on the part of the world where the rifle will be deployed. Custom camo patterns of any three or four colors are optional at no extra charge.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Standard – The majority of our stocks are filled with standard fill, also called sporter fill. It is composed of fiberglass cloth and solid fiberglass throughout the forearm and action area. A dense 2 piece foam is used in the butt stock. This fill is used for all calibers up to and including .300 win mag.
Magnum – This fill is used for heaving recoiling and magnum caliber rifles, mainly on hunting stocks. It constructed the same as a standard fill except heavier, thicker and more dense fiberglass is used in the recoil lug and action area to withstand heavy recoil and be easier on the shooter. It will add about 6 ounces of weight to the stock. It will be used for anything above a .300 win mag caliber.
Sniper – This fill is mainly used on magnum calibers on our tactical stocks. It is the same as magnum fill except there is lightweight fiberglass in the butt stock, not foam. This is so hardware for adjustability can be installed onto the butt stock if so desired. With the fiberglass being in the butt, it also helps to balance out rifles with large barrel contours. It will add about 8-10 ounces to the stock.

On our website just click on “stock pricing” to see the current price list. Our price list is broken down into two basic sections where most stocks in that group are all priced the same. For the “Hunting and Sporting” type stocks look in the “hunting” section for the current price for a fully inletted blank. This price includes the color and finish of your choice. Now click or look in the “stock options or accessories list”. You will see many optional items here and the price each option will add to the base price. For a hunting stock you can choose from two different recoil pads and specify the length of pull. Just add the price of the pad you choose to the base price. Now for sling or bipod attachment points you can choose standard sling studs or flush cups for flush applications. Just choose what you want and how many and add those prices to the base price and pad price to get a total price for the stock.
In the Tactical and Competition stock section, look again to see the starting base price. These stocks typically have a more solid fiberglass filler material which requires slower inletting speeds and more inletting for stock options and accessories and are priced higher than the hunting stocks because of the increased CNC machine time. Again the base price includes the color and finish of your choice. Go to the stock options and accessories list. Not all stocks have all the options available for them so check with us if you have questions. If you want an adjustable cheekpiece, pick one of the three types available and add that price to the base price. Choose what you want on the butt – just a recoil pad or one of the adjustable butt assemblies and add that price. For sling or bipod attachments choose standard sling studs or flush cups and how many and add those prices. Decide if you want optional accessory rails and bipod studs and add the price. If you want pre-installed machined-in metal pillars around the guard screw holes just specify that and add the price. Now add everything up to get a total price of a stock equipped just the way you want it. In the accessories list you can order different sling loops, or a hand stop, or any of the other accessories that we carry. See, it’s really not that complicated once you work through it the first time.
