McMillan Fiberglass Stocks is known for making precision-driven custom stocks, and now the company is expanding its lineup of ready-to-install fiberglass stocks with the new Z-10 Bag Rider stock. 

The Z-10 Bag Rider stock is based on the company's popular A-10 tactical stock. The Z-10 replaces the A-10's familiar butt hook with a swept butt profile to more easily accommodate rear bags for bench or prone shooting.

Actions that fit the stock include models from APA, Defiance, Bighorn, Stiller, Lone Peak, Surgeon, Ultimatum, and more. The universal inletting makes the Z-10 Bag Rider drop-in-ready direct, right from the factory.
