Looking at buying a few sets and considering PTG. Any thoughts for or against? Anyone know if Callahan is getting their bottom metal from PTG? Still undecided on Aluminum or steel.

I've used two of their aluminum units and have a third in the closet for my next build. Very nice stuff. The one I had on my .257 Wby in a factory LSS stock rode just a little (maybe .080") proud, but was not enough to bother me. The one I had on my .308 in a McMillan Remington Hunter stock was a perfect fit.

You guys running the Oberendorf style or standard? Does the Oberendorf have a different inlet?

I called 2 weeks ago to buy LA aluminum Oberendorf style and the lady told me 2-4 month waiting time, so I too am interested in this topic.

I am disappointed, first off I had to call them 3 times because it didn't show up after I ordered it 2 weeks before, then I get it and its in pieces. so I put in the roll pins and the roll pins are really really tight to get in, so I hammered them in none the less. this made it so the floor plate was very very stiff to open and the spring latch would not return to closed because of the tight roll pins. so I returned it and said send me another that is assembled, got it back shortly and this one still has the stiff floor plate, I guess I will roll with it. BTW this is a short action oberndorf unit.

build guaility is decent, however the bare aluminum looks kinda not right they did do a tumbled finish. I would recommend the black coated unit.

Depending on the dept of the BLD inlet, the Oberndorm might require some minor inletting as the floorplate itself is a bit wider at the rear than the factory unit. I think the Oberndorf is a big improvement over the factory.

Anyone know if Callahan is using PTG stuff and selling it under their name?

Are they similiar in dimensions to a William's bm? I'm thinking about trying the aluminum piece for my 7mm wsm.

rrconductor...I just ordered one LA and one SA Oberndorf both aluminum and they have them in stock. If you are still interested you might want to give them a call.
