First Look: McMillan A-10 Rifle Stock

posted on January 22, 2019

Interest in the sport of Precision Rifle Shooting (PRS) has recently boomed, and McMillan is one of the most-trusted names in the precision rifle game. New for 2019 is the company's A-10 stock designed for women and shooters of smaller stature who want all the benefits of McMillan’s popular line tactical stocks but in a more-compact format to facilitate their ergonomic needs.

“We consulted many of the top shooters in the country throughout the research and development process of the A-10," said Britainy McMillan, McMillan VP of Operations. “We wanted to know what the pros would like to see in a precision stock, and the result is the A-10. We feel this is the optimal rifle platform not only for women and other small-stature shooters, but especially for the youth shooter.”

The overall design of the A-10 stock, along with the full adjustability in length-of-pull and cheek piece height, provides younger shooters with a stock that can grow into and use all throughout their life.

The A-10 combines a thinner forearm similar to the McMillan A3-5 models with a butt hook that is similar to the A-5 stock along with the sleek lines of the A-6 into a well thought out and well-balanced tactical package. The vertical grip is positioned further forward than other A-series stocks, which allows for a more relaxed, 90-degree trigger finger placement and a shorter trigger reach, making it perfect for shooters with smaller hands.

The grip on the A-10 also has a small shelf that works as a hand stop, allowing for lower fatigue and consistent hand placement. The adjustable buttstock of the A-10 can be shortened to a length-of-pull of just 12 inches, which another accommodate to smaller-frame shooters, and an adjustable cheek riser ensures optimal head alignment no matter the size of the shooter.
