Does anyone have any experience of these stocks?
I am very tempted to get one for F Class / tactical competitions and like the modular design but have still to see any on the competition circuit in the U.K.
I would be using it as part of a custom Remington 700 build.
Any information, good or bad will be appreciated,

I use mine in F/ tr. You have to like an ar-15 style grip; which i do. Put any grip that fits your hand. Using the recommended torque on receiver screws I can see no issues with the fit. I have done no skim bedding at all. Also bought the flat fore end for a front rest which I use when shooting my 6br bbl. Because of making weight I use a med. palma taper in .308. So far I'm very pleased with it.

So far I like mine very much. Utilized primarily as an F-Open stock (see the pictures on the shooting bench for an idea as to how I have it configured for that) it tracks *very* straight in the bags - I was somewhat surprised the first time a 17# 6 Dasher came zipping back and bopped me in the face when I tried to free-recoil it!
I should get some pics of it as used on the ground, etc. Haven't had the time/inclination thus far <shrug/>

I find the Accuracy International grip too small for my hands and like the idea of having the option of several AR type grips to find one that fits.

One thing to be aware of... the 'block' that the grip attaches to and the two bolts that hold the buttstock in place screw into... uses 1/4-20tpi for *all three* holes. Normal AR grip bolts use 1/4-28tpi as near as I can tell. Trying to screw an aftermarket AR grip on there with its associated bolt will lead to some bad words if you aren't aware of it - not something I thought to check in advance, rest of the known world sticks with 1/4-28 for AR grip allen bolts, etc. A quick trip to the hardware store to get an appropriate length 1/4-20 bolt will be in order.

I like mine but the folding stock version makes it easier to clean the rifle. My cheek piece and butt stock are set very high for prone work. I have to remove the butstock to use my cleaning rod. Just remove the bag bar and 2 bolts but a pita just the same. I did skim bed mine but I did not see any difference, it shot very well from the day I bolted it on.

i shoot a mcree variant and like it very much - to the point that i have 2 more variants - one for t/r.
i have changed the 'rider' bar [rear] for a smaller one - to fit bag better.
only have a 'pistol' grip on the f-t/r gun and find that it's to small for my hand. when i have time, i will replace it with something bigger??!!
as monte touched on - screw size.
i found for f-open, 'screws' didn't hold up! could never keep them tight when your shooting fast. [ i have shoot 17 rds in 4 1/2 min].
i have replaced 'all' screws with 1/4x20 SS bolts and nylock nuts. --- problem solved.

Might try a Sierra Precision grip (Sinclair Intl/Brownells/Midway should have them) + a grip extender. Assuming you have proper-sized hands like me it should put the pad of your trigger finger right on the trigger bar.
Another option would be a Tubb grip.
If you are going to Cascade this weekend, I have a large laminated wood grip you can look at. I paid way too much for it considering its condition, but it might be an option for you.
