New personal record (PR)

Today was the first match of the year and first match with my new stock. Over the past weeks I’ve only been able to get a live fire practice about 3 times, including a match practice the day before.

In the last match before changing the stock I managed to shoot a new PR of 599.2, it gave me some worries that with a new stock I’d have to really learn how to shoot again, and over the 3 practices and some dry fire ones I seemed to have managed to adjust the stock to my liking.

I adjusted the sight cant, I adjusted the trigger position, I adjusted the trigger shoe angle, I adjusted the cheek piece and buttplate, my posture among other things.

All the small adjustments seemed to have made a good impact, as I shoot a new PR today with a score of 604.7, improving my old PR by 5.5 points, which landed me in 4th place overall.

New stock – Tesro Evolution 10 Pro

Decided to go with the Tesro Evolution 10 Pro mainly due to it being at half the price of the going stocks for 1807 (1918 and Mec Mark I), I was a little worried and hesitant due to it being not used by any top shooter (that I was able to find atleast) also when I mentioned it to few shooters here I got the “who?”.

Ordered the stock from http://www.buinger.com/ GREAT service and great people. Took within 4 weeks to arrive from the German manufacturer, to Buinger and to me.

The inletting they did for the Anschutz 54 round action is ambidextrous, so a right handed 54 could be dropped into the stock with out a problem also. Not sure if this is the case when ordering a right handed stock or of it’s the same with their Evo 20 stock.

The forend is hollowed out with minor structural ribs to keep it solid and not flexing, also has went slots on the sides.

Unboxed it and first impression was that it is a solid stock, looks great, and the laminated wood grip and cheekpiece look awesome.

Original buttplate position is very low and might be fine for 3 position when kneeling or standing but the buttplate guide can be inverted to get the buttplate up high enough for me when shooting in the prone position.

The cheekpiece is made ambidextrous and can be adjusted in multiple ways, tilt, offset, twist and height.

I brought the stock home and took the action out of the old stock and directly into the new one and took it to one of the clubs to try it out. I made some initial adjustments, took 5 shots made more adjustments, 5 shots and more adjustments.

After about 20-25 shots I may have it in a way I want it, only time will tell now.

Last 9 shots of the evening after adjusting the stock. Did not adjust the sights.

In conclusion I really like the stock, did not see many things that this one is has or doesn’t have that the big names have.

Things I would like to change: More grip options, adjustment end-stops similar to anschutz, buttplate guide able to directly accept other buttplates.

The original buttplate was just a tad too small and slippery for my taste and without the hook, it felt like it was slipping on my shoulder, so I used my machining skills and made some changes to my 4765 carrier barĀ and mounted it to the Tesro guide plate.
