High Tech Specialties, Inc. Custom Stocks

About our Product: All stocks are handcrafted by skilled technicians using formulated epoxy resins selected for maximum strength and durability. The stock is made with continuous multi-stage layers of “e-glass” fiberglass with graphite reinforcement in critical areas. The action area is a solid epoxy and glass composite yielding very high tensile and compression strength. The stock is made by pressure lamination with mold parting lines on the top and bottom. The surface finish is intended to be painted or finished in some manner. Structure urethane foam is used in the butt and forearm to reduce weight and increase strength. We emphasize “quality”, not quantity. The end result is a stock that looks, feels, fits and performs like it was intended. Each stock is individually “handcrafted.”

Design: Stocks have a slender wrist section, “Classic” dimensions, with as high a comb as possible and very little drop at the heel – average 9/16 of an inch.

Installation: Our stocks are intended for gunsmith installation and in order to achieve maximum accuracy, the rifle must be glass bedded. Our tolerances are kept to a minimum which means that fitting will be necessary. Our stocks are NOT a drop in fit and require significant work to produce a final product.

Glass Bedding Our Stocks: Because our stocks are made with epoxy resin, epoxy glass bedding kits and/or materials will bond both mechanically and chemically to our stocks – no need for anchor holes. The expansion coefficient of the stock and the epoxy bedding material are the same, therefore, temperature and time will not affect the bond.

Recoil: Due to the internal construction of our stocks, they do not transmit energy in the same manner as wood or injection molded stocks. The structural urethane foam making up the inner core changes the time duration in which energy is transmitted. If you spread energy transmission over a longer period of time, you will feel less of the recoil.

Length of Pull: Our stocks are 13-7/8 inches in “LOP” without the recoil pad installed. They are intended to be cut to a desired length and a recoil pad installed.

Sling Swivel Studs: Our stocks are factory equipped with quick detachable sling swivel studs. These studs are backed with internal steel anchors molded into the stock for maximum strength.

Returns: If you are not completely satisfied with our product, return it UNALTERED within 10 days of receipt, and we will refund your purchase price (less shipping and handling). No returns accepted after 10 days.
