The Universal Concept stock from Esprit Carbine in France builds on the MEC Project, which we sold for a number of years prior to it being discontinued.
One stock provides two methods of attaching the rifle:
- The traditional method of connecting the action of the rifle to the stock with bedding bolts is available, and the stock is delivered ready to accept either a Bleiker Challenger or Grunig & Elmiger R2/R3 straight out of the box. Adaptor plates provide the ability to connect other makes and models of rifles, and the list of currently available options is shown below. New options will be added as they become available.
- The alternative method of connecting the rifle to stock is provided by barrel clamps, which lock the barrel in two places, leaving the action free-floating. These clamps are adjustable, and a wide variety of rifles can be attached using this method.
We have received an initial delivery of stocks, and pictures of some of them are shown below. There are more pictures of the stocks, and some of the other features, on our Facebook page.
A wide variety of finishes and colours are available, including the colour options shown below. We have the following stocks available immediately:
- Matt Black
The Red stock has some marks on the inside of the accessory rail where a handstop was attached and has been discounted to reflect this condition. All of these stocks have the multi-adjustable grip and we can supply them immediately with the double retaining rings, or without barrel clamps.
New for this year is the addition of Hydrographic options, with a huge variety of designs which can be added to the stock - click here to see the many options.
We can further customise your stock by requesting different colours for the trigger guard, the panel protecting the cheeckpiece and butt plate mechanisms and the adjustment knobs. Â There are too many options to make online ordering sensible, so please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Also new for this year, a Basic grip - which provides vertical and lateral adjustment - has been introduced. The multi-adjustable grip is familiar to those who have seen earlier iterations of this stock, adding a ball-joint at the top of the grip to allow for far greater adjustment.
