IMO, they are the best. Yes, they are stiff, inletted close to perfect, finished better than anything I've seen and you can bolt them right up if you choose to. Only downside is the wait. Sometimes you can go to their website and find a ready made stock especially for something as common as the 700. Sometimes customers get impatient after ordering and back out and McMillan is already in the process of making the stock, so when they finish it, it goes into inventory for sale through their website. Lots are discounted this way as well. I have several and quite honestly I wouldn't buy another brand unless McMillan didn't offer an inlet for my application. Sky is the limit on color choices as well.
