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 in this catalog or on our website. No two stocks are ever made alike.

And here is the camo chart for those of you who want a molded-in camo finish:

Don't need no pics, need recipe. 50% tan, 25% Olive, 35% black as I recall. Or is that another rifle?

Since you asked so nicely, seems to me the bomber is 50 olive, 25/25 Black/tan.

Mine is 50 Dark gray, 25/25 Black/tan...

Steelhead ... you can lay claim to whatever you want concerning "da bomber" ... I was just trying to help the guy out with the "recipe" he asked for ...

Having said that, I'd to your recipe WAY before the other ... I just can't like gray as the base color for a stock ... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

I get enough queries about this color scheme to warrant posting it. When I ordered it through Mike Bryant, I specified 80% dark red, 20% black. After discussing it with Rick Bin and looking at the color chart, I think McMillan used Burgandy where I requested a dark red, since they technically don't have a "dark red." In any case, I was extremely pleased with how it came out.

This one is SharpShooter's Nesika 6.5-06 put together by Charley Robertson of Score High Gunsmithing out of Albuquerque. Charley does extremely good work. I once shot a group with this rifle that measured .137" with 129gr Hornady Interlocks. Anyway, back to the colors. SS said it's a 50/50 red/black. This is the scheme I'm going with on my next project.

I thought that rifle looked familiar. That's the stock where the front action screw bushing kept sinking in and I had to repair it. Only glitch I've ever had with a McMillan stock but it's fixed now.

Are you guys sure about that?? John your stock looks darker to me. The stock in Doeslayer's post is "60% Burgundy, 20% Dark Grey and 20% White" and yours doesn't look as "purple" to me. Yours looks darker. Yours, I like very much BTW and may order one myself. Who is the guy from McMillan that post here, maybe he could help us.

60% Dk Blue, 20% White and 20% Black, i should take a better pic, like the combo but the stock isnt working for me, my hands are to dang big for them to comfortably hold the thin wrist of the Mountain Rifle Stock, going to replace it next year, to dang close to hunting season to do it this year <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

I'm new to this topic. How do you order these stocks or are they tuned up with colors in an after market way?
Do you all get them from McMillan just as you specify it in your order?
I have plans to let me build a custom rifle and I'm always interested in functional and good looking synthetic stocks.
Personnaly I have a Blaser R93 Professional with a synthetic stock in 6.5x55 Swed. Mauser.

Elmer,

You order them straight from McMillan that way. You just specify the color mix you want. I'm only on my second McSwirly, but am acquainted with several. McMillan does a great job of getting you what you ask for - just be sure you ask for what you want. I absolutely love mine, both of which are in this thread.

Uh, let me correct that a bit. The purpose of this thread is so that you can order them anywhere, but especially right here at 24hourcampfire:

https://www.24hourcampfire.com/cata...;osCsid=d275d5cb63a46893511cde6624bc33f7

where you will get them for a significant savings over McMillan retail direct. grin

We at 24hourcampfire are authorized McMillan dealers and have MANY McMillans in stock, and also handle hundreds of custom orders per year, includling molded-in colors as above.

We also do specialty and custom painting on McMillans, as so:

https://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbt...showflat/Number/713395/page/1#Post713395

We does what we cans. Let me know how I can help, or PM DickD right here on this Board -- Dick Davis, the production manager at McMillan and a helluva nice guy to boot.

I think when Hondo said "you order them straight from McMillan that way" he was answering the question "are they tuned up with colors in an after market way?" and not suggesting to ORDER directly from McMillan and bypass the campfire. But to a guy who's not in the loop, it could be construed that way.

Has anyone have or seen a swirly flame pattern with olive/woodland beige/dark green or dark brown? I am trying to envision it as opposed to a regular swirly.

I wished McMillan would have multiple brown shades available so we could order a stock that looked just like fine wood.

Just got off the phone with McM and was told that they don't suggest doing white as the base color anymore as they have had complaints about it being partially transparent.

Have any of you experienced this problem?

I've long been fond of that color combo and have one that is practically a duplicate. I can't claim to have come up with the scheme, but I like it nonetheless.

BCBrian,

We do have multiple shades of brown, Light Brown, Med Brown and Dark brown. Those colors mixed with a marble or "McSwirly" look like wood.

JPro,

I followed dogzapper's recipe for that stock. I believe he calls it his "blue meanine" in 223AI?

JPro,

Ahh, nice rig. I think we have very similar color schemes. It looks like you used white whereas I used med. gray.

Does McMillan still offer the "Fibergrain" option or was that basically just a McSwirly in various shades of brown?

If it's just a brown McSwirly, what percentages of the various browns are recommended for a wood grain look?

Does anyone have any pictures of various wood-looking McSwirlys?

Thanks.

A Black and forest green combo catch my eye or both my eyes. Is there any combination that will make a .375 H&H hit harder?? ^^

Guys, I don't have time to read this whole thread.

Does anyone have a pic of a WHOLE stock in 'MARBLE'?

That one has possibilities.

Thanks

"Marble" or "swirl" is just the technique, not the color scheme. Look at the stickies at the top of the Custom and Wildcat forum for lots of photos.

Anyone got something like a 50% dark green, 25% black, 25% medium brown? Trying to picture how this combo would do in the pine forests around here.

This is the photo I sent McMillan for reference when I ordered my stock. I would have liked a little more of a "zerbra" stripe look, like the third one down. But I'm happy either way!

Cerakote has a color they call "McMillan Tan." Which tan is it? McMillan has several tans.

Separate question, because the answer may or may not be the same, which tan is this:

No trainer solution 9.3x64 next choice any of the .375s from H&H up to RUM or 378 Weatherby. Once you get a 286 - 300 grain bullet over 2500 fps recoil starts to get significant. Over 3,000 fps it starts to really get my attention and not in a good way. Careful what you wish for.
