Here's my 6.5-06. It's a Remington Classic style and the recipe is 60% Burgundy, 20% Dark Grey and 20% White. Mickey Coleman put it together.

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.

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.

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="" />

If it is a short action let me know when you get ready to sell it.

Hondo- I gotta say that "red" rifle of yours looks right up my alley and has gotta be a shooting son of a gun!

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.
