My AICS Stock on my Remington 5R

I just had to give everyone a sneak peek! I swapped the Remington stock with the Accuracy International stock tonight. It was pretty easy, with one exception – the safety. I’ll tell ya all about it tomorrow. I have to get some sleep! Sweet dreams… (I’ll be dreaming of long range targets.)

    Pardon the stupid question, but is that eye relief correct? It looks awfully close to your eye??? Which is NOT a good thing on the higher calibers…

    • Old NFO, you have a great eye! Last night I shortened the stock by removing about 1″ worth of spacers. I put the scope where it had been before I did so. I am kinda lucky, because a friend is lending me a Night Force so I can practice with a better reticle. Anyway, I did not spend energy on the scope last night because I am just going to change it in a few days.

      So – your question is legitimate!

  2. [...] I showed a picture last week of the new Accuracy International stock I put on my Remington 5R. If you have ever used an Accuracy International Chassis System (AICS) stock, you already know why I decided to make this change. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity, let me see if I can explain.  It is not only a tactical stock, but an advanced chassis system that will provide a stable platform and improve accuracy. The chassis is very sturdy aluminum, it provides a detachable box magazine, mounts for both Harris and AI type bipods (I have a Versa Pod I want to use for this rifle.), it has an adjustable cheek piece and and adjustable butt pad. The sidestocks are polymer, providing a better grip.  They are durable and and easy to clean. The main reason I swapped the stocks is to have more options than the factory Remington stock allowed. The AICS stock gave me a magazine, options to adjust the length of pull, an adjustable cheek piece, and the ability to use a Versa Pod.  I can really make this rifle mine now. [...]
