SHOT Show Report: McMillan’s New A3 Sporter Stock

McMillan unveiled a new stock that should appeal to readers who like McMillan tactical stocks but want something with greater versatility for sitting, kneeling, and standing shots. The new McMillan A3 Sporter combines the popular features of the A3 tactical stock with a redesigned fore-arm, plus a buttstock with more drop at the rear. For a tactical shooter, the feel of the handgrip and comb will be familiar. However, the buttstock will fit the shoulder better when standing. Also a flared beavertail has been added along the fore-end to provide more secure placement for your front hand.

McMillan’s Dick Davis explained: “Our tactical stocks — the A2, A3, A4, A5 — are designed as prone stocks. The comb is very high and very straight, and they have very little drop at heel. They’re made to shoot when laying down on the ground. They don’t shoot well standing up offhand as a hunting stock”. Davis added: “The tactical shooters have been bugging [us] for years for a hunting stock they can shoot offhand”. For its new A3 Sporter, McMillan has modified the butt and the fore-arm to create a better platform for hunters. Now, Davis says: “We have a good off-hand stock with a vertical, tactical-style pistol grip that the tactical guys are used to shooting”.

Benchrest Stocks — Good for Varminters As Well
In addition to the A3 Sporter, Dick Davis explained some of the differences between the older style McMillan Benchrest stock design, and the more modern Edge stock. Both stocks can work very well in a competitive benchrest gun, but they can also function very well for a varmint rifle shot from a front sandbag or pedestal rest. For a varmint gun, we actually really like the older benchrest stock. It has a comfortable hand grip and the round toe on the buttstock works well for bag-squeezers. Davis confirmed that this stock is quite popular with varminters: “Over 1/3 of McMillan benchrest stocks are used in field varmint rifles”. Shown below is the original McMillan benchrest stock.

Field Test Review of New Savage Edge on Gunblast.com

Last month we profiled the new, affordable Savage Edge hunting rifle. Though starting MSRP is just $329.00, this new Savage has many nice features, including a detachable box magazine, free-floated barrel, and handy thumb safety on the tang. The bolt copies the Savage 10/110 floating-head design and the Edge uses the familiar Savage barrel nut to secure the barrel and set headspace.

Jeff Quinn of Gunblast.com got his hands on the new Savage Edge. He was impressed with the gun, which he called “an excellent rifle at an amazing price.” Despite its low cost, Quinn’s test gun delivered sub-MOA accuracy with a variety of .243 Winchester factory loads: “Several [three-shot] groups were fired that measured under one-half inch, but the five-eighths inch group shown was typical for the day. No groups measured in excess of the magical one-inch mark.”

Overall, writer Jeff Quinn praised the Edge as a good, solid hunting rifle that offers great value: “There were no surprises in the handing of the Edge; it balances and handles very well. There were no surprises in the accuracy of the Edge; it shoots where you point it. There were no surprises in the reliability of the Edge; it fed, fired, and ejected perfectly. The surprise is in the price. As of this writing, the Edge has an MSRP of only $329 US. For only fifty bucks more, you can get the Edge with a 3 to 9 power scope already mounted and bore-sighted.”
