I've known Rick for 25 years and have worked with him in the past. He is a wizard when it comes to fiberglass stocks and building custom rifles. Beautiful rifle you have there!

Agree on both points ...... A full stock rifle w/o sights looks like an unfinished project. smile

Now that has me thinking about a M-78 I have here in 308. A 20" F/S rifle in that stock would be nice.

A modern take on the 6.5x54 Mannlicher-Schoenauer 1903, such as carried by W.D.M. Bell.
A fine idea!

Rick does awesome work. He turned down a barrel for me on a model 70. Nobody else would attempt that project, but it came out great. Awesome looking rifle!

I have a handful of mannlicher rifles, but no synthetic stocks. Yours is beautiful. I'm curious how much furniture like that will set someone back.

I have a 20" 7-08 Turkish Mauser that I was thinking about migrating into a full walnut stock. However, the synthetic could be an option.

This has really been eating me up since seeing this thread. I remember seeing some information on the MPI stocks in the past, but I thought that I had read that the original owner passed and they were no longer doing mannlichers. There's very little information online regarding them, I'd be very interested in pictures to see the quality work. Ricks website has some good general pricing information, but also no pictures.
