I am considering to try a benchrest stock from Richards microfit gun stocks.
How good are they, should I consider them or should I stay away from them?

Any info welcome

Thanks

And be prepared for a long wait. If you want one, and they do have a real good selection of designs to choose from, order it and "forgetaboutit"! When it shows up it will be a real surprise. Plan on doing a lot of wood working to get it to where you like it or you might luck out and get a nice one. 50/50 chance. Some come out looking pretty good and others look like they were cut with a chainsaw. Barrel channels offset, holes drilled in the wrong place,colors not like the pictures they show. Just minor stuff like that. And did I mention the long wait? Just don't plan on getting it real soon.

Hi Eddy,
It's been a while, and it will be lots longer than that before you get a Microfit stock.
The good news is I heard they changed the chain in the chainsaw
Email Russo for a nice stock with great inletting, and all the holes in the right place...

Strike 4 for Richards.

I have a "Tactical" model on one of my Savages. While I really like the way it feels(now that it's done), it took 18 weeks to get, came about 80% inletted(if that), had the wrong barrel channel cut, and the cut was pretty rough(although not as bad as all the other horror stories out there). Add in the fact that I paid 250 for it and it didnt even have any pillars in it, I woulda been way ahead of the game to spend the extra money and buy one from Stockade, Russo, or Sharpshooter Supply.

I dont know what you're putting the stock on, but I will recommend any of the 3 I just mentioned. I just got a laminate from SSS, and it is 100% inletted, only took 4 weeks, and was final sanded and ready for finish. All I had to do was just about 10 minutes with some 600grit paper and it was ready. What a delight(especially after it took 2 weeks to sand my Richards stock).

That being said, now that it's done I really like it, and they do have alot of great designs. They just need better customer service, and better blades on their saws.

Good luck

And some of the guys have lucked out and got a real nice one. You pays your money and you takes your chances.
The first one I got from them was for a blind mag Savage. Had to send it back because it was cut for a removable mag.
The second one I got showed "blue" on the website and it was green. When I called them on it they wern't very nice so that was the last time.
Call Joel Russo and get a "good" stock. Just make sure it isn't "Pink". People will give you funny looks.
Here's your "pink" A5L from Joel.
The brown Wildcat Camo is a Richards Micro Fit but Joel has the same design with a 100% better fit.

Hi P.

As stated I'll stay away from Richards'.

Maybe I'll check with Russo. I'm not in a hurry

Thanks again
