Stock and Trade: New A5-7 Now Available from McMillian Stocks

Established in 1973, McMillan Stocks became an industry pioneer, as it was among the first companies to produce synthetic rifle stocks on a large scale. Its stocks have been employed on several rifles, including the M40A1, M40A3, M40A5, XM3, and Mk 13 Mod 0.

The late U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle earned distinction for his abilities as a sniper during the Iraq War, where among his rifles of choice was the McMillan TAC-338 rifle with the McMillan A5 stock with integral adjustable cheek-piece.
