How much work has to be done to a Echols Shrike stock for a standard 700 action and magnum contour barrel?

The stock D’Arcy sent me was a drop-in. I didn’t keep it. Told him I didn’t want it because it had a cheek weld. He figured I’d change my mind. I sent it back. He still owes me “a stack of new dimes”. That was the bet.

Mine was completely finished, ready for use. But, it came from D’Arcy Echols, not McMillan.

Give D'Arcy a call and order it the way you want it, just like you would with McMillan. Only you difference is you have to order from from him.
He doesn't usually keep any in stock, all special order.

The way I get them is unfinished, full length and unpainted. I believe the stock D’Arcy shows on his site is unfinished for that money. I’d bet it’s double in cost for him to do all of the finishing, painting and adding a recoil pad. I’ve had mine sent to Kevin Weaver to be finished and bedded and they’ve came out pretty well so far.

He will custom order the stock inlet to fit your barrel contour. I'm pretty sure he can order them finished, painted, with pad, etc. from McMillan-- just give him a call. I've done three and all started out unfinished, I did the rest of the work myself.

I would also advocate calling Mr. Echols if you have questions. He is very personable and down to earth, on top of being very knowledgeable about his craft.

What is a cheek weld?

Both my Shrike and Legend were unfinished, uncut needing a pad, needed bedding. Love both of them.

I am fighting the urge to order an Edge Shrike for my old M722 40X 22LR single shot! grin At present it is being set up in a silhouette stock.

Would make a nice rifle that any self-respecting gopher would be proud to be shot with.


Anybody who seriously concerns themselves with the adequacy of a Big 7mm for anything we hunt here short of brown bear, is a dufus. They are mostly making shidt up. Crunch! Nite-nite!

That's one hell of a good looking rig, GSSP. Well done.

Cheek piece, cheek weld. What else do you call it?
