Will the Ridgeback be available with the Tikka t3x long action any time soon?
Its looking like by the end of this year.
How much torque should I put on the front and rear action screws of my Bergara Premier Ridgeback?
We recommend 45 in lbs.
If I choose the 1.250” straight barrel option, does it mean that I can run almost any barrel contour up to 1.250” even with a barrel nut, like the Phoenix?
Will this fit a 7mm mag Winchester model 70
Unfortunately our stocks don't fit Winchesters at this time.
Was wondering if I could fit a savage impulse on this...
Unfortunately at this time our stocks don't fit Savage rifles.
I need your Grayboe Ridgeback stock for the Howa 1500 Long Action the fact that Howa offers 300 PRC and Lapua now offering 300 PRC brass. I would think the need for your stocks to have a Howa inlet would be highly appreciated.
We will eventually have inlets for the Howa 1500 for all our stocks. just don't have a hard set date on when that will be just yet.
I'm going to get a vortex viper pst 2 5x25x50 scope for my 6.5 Creedmoor. The scope is a 30mm tube. What rings would you suggest? Thank you
I would suggest rings from Vortex or Talley manufacturing.
Does this fit the Terminus Zeus action?
yes it will fit. The ejection port on the Zeus is .100" larger forward and rearward but this is purelyl cosmetic. Your action will fit and function perfectly in the Ridgeback stock.
Looking to get a defiance ruckus action in .300 win mag with a proof pre fit carbon barrel. What bottom inlet would be best for that? Also, not sure how to figure out the shank size or if it would have a barrel nut or not?
Do you have a bottom metal for it yet? You could select a BDL floor plate or if you wanted magazine fed you could get the stock inlet for a Grayboe DBM like seen here, https://www.grayboe.com/collections/accessories/products/grayboe-dbm-remington-700. You probably don't have a barrel nut that screws the barrel into the action, whoever installs the barrel onto the action would tell you if they are putting one on or not. Please email email@example.com and we can send you a picture of how to measure the finished shank length on the barrel.
Do you make a stock for howa 1500 with heavy barrel 6.5 creedmore
Unfortunately at this time our stocks don't fit Howa rifles.
Can you install a monopod at the rear of the stock? I see a black circle at the bottom of the rear of the stock but not sure if that’s for a stud or rail?
Yes you can. First, you'll need to install a flush cup stud adaptor into the flush cup like seen here, https://www.grayboe.com/collections/accessories/products/flush-cup-stud-adapter. Then you can attach a stud mounted monopod.
I have a bergara premier approach. Will the barrel and action fit in this stock?
Yes it will. For action inlet select "Bergara Premier". for Bottom metal inlet select "Factory Bergara Floorplate". For barrel select "Bergara" and contour # select the number 5. Hope that helps!
Does the seekins havak brovo fit tight with your ridgeback.
yes the action will fit. The bottom metal will fit if its an M5 footprint bottom metal. The barrel will fit if its similar to a Remington Varmint contour.
My buddy is planning on getting a chassis system for his Bergara Premier Rifle with DBM Chambered in 6.5 CM. I have a Remington 700 5r Chambered in .308, and it was my understanding that both rifles have the same footprint, I'm just curious if that also applies to the DMB, or would I need to purchase a different bottom metal? Thanks
The actions are the same footprint but vary just slightly as the Bergara has a side bolt release. The bottom metals are the same if you have a Bergara Premier Ridgeback rifle with the Grayboe DBM currently on it.
Hey guys. I recently received my Bergara Ridgeback and was disappointed to see the bubble level was discontinued. I emailed them with no response. Anyway, do you have a recommendation for adding one to the stock behind the bolt similar to the original design? I tried one on the scope rail, but it is blocked by the scope and I don't care for the tube mounted versions. Thanks for any assistance.
we level it off on our mills and machine the slot for the bubble level then epoxy it in place. we could also put it in for you. shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Need a ridgeback to fit a fierce edge in woodland camo, how much and how soon.
I believe the Fierce acions are a sako 85 foot print receiver. Unless they have changed the design and its now a Rem 700 clone? If its not a Rem 700 clone, unfortunately it won't fit our stocks at this time.
I have a Remington 700 ADL Tactical in .308. What barrel contour would I choose as it appears my rifle has a heavy threaded barrel?
you would select factory varmint.
I have a Christensen arms ridge line with a stock component will it fit in this stock
yes it will. for action inlet select "christensen arms ridgeline". for bottom metal inlet select "BDL style floor plate". We are not 100% sure on what contour the ridgeline barrel is as we have yet to see one here in shop at Grayboe but we believe it will drop into a Remington Varmint barrel inlet stock so you could select "factory varmint".
Do you have plans for a Ridgeback that is fully compatible with the Impact Precision 737R trigger hanger?
yes, as soon as we are able to get an action here in shop to create the programming to inlet a stock for that hanger we will be able to offer it.
Is there an ETA for when stocks will be available for tikka rifles? Specifically the ridgeback
we'll have the phoenix stock ready in a couple weeks, the ridgeback will probably be around the beginning of 2021.
Hey, do you plan on making stocks compatible with tikka action soon?
Yes we do. Should have the Phoenix stock ready for the T3 in a few weeks. Then we will work on offering the T3 in all our other stocks.
Where do you get the tripod?
I don't believe they are in production anymore but its a DLOC Head-S. ZRODelta carried them. This is all the info i could gather from the photographer that took this shot.
Hello, I have a Impact 737r action. I was curious if this will fit in the standard Remington 700 inlet on this stock and work with the greyboe bottom metal.
yes it will fit a Rem 700 inlet Ridgeback stock and is compatible with the Grayboe bottom metal. However, the stock will need to be slightly modified for the trigger hanger on the impact action.
I have a ruger m77 mark1 7mm flattop. Any chance for a stock?
Unfortunately our stocks don't fit a Ruger M77 at this time.
I’m left handed. Your stock is labeled ambidextrous but the comb seems to be relieved for right hand
the stock is ambidextrous but for left hand shooters we recommend removing the knob that adjusts the cheek rest and using the flush mount screw provided with the Ridgeback stock. This way the adjustment knob won't interfere with your cheek.
Will the Ridgeback fit a B-14R rimfire using the factory DBM?
It will but will require modification. The bottom of the stock will need to be opened up to fit the Bergara magazine system. We can do that mod for you if you'd like, email email@example.com for a quote.
I already own a ridgeback stock. If I wanted to use a 26" MTU barrel in it, would I need to have the inlet opened up? If so, what would be the rough cost to send it to you for that procedure?
Yes the barrel channel will need to be opened up. You can sand it open or we can machine it. Cost will depend on what finish you currently have on the stock. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get you a specific price quote.
Can this stock be adjusted to fit a Tikka T3X action inlet?
currently no, it only fits Remington style actions. this next year we plan on offering different action inlets to our line of stocks.
what stocks would you have that would fit a seekins havak ph2 short action
The Phoenix stock would work, the only mod may be where the bolt handle closes. The ridgeback would also work but you may have to open up the stocks ejection port for it to look cosmetically perfect.
Will this fit a Bergara B14HMR barreled action?
yes it will, however if you have the factory bergara plastic bottom metal it won't fit as its larger than a M5 DBM profile.
Can you esitimate the overall length of a Ridgeback with a Remington 700 short action with 18" barrel ?
The overall length of the Ridgeback with 4 spacers is 32.25". Not sure what an 18" barrel from muzzle tip to end of the butt stock would be.
Will the Magpul dbm work on this stock with the M5 cut
to my knowledge the magpul DBM has its own foot print and won't work on a stock cut out for a M5 DBM.
Unclear what is meant by the bottom metal on the Ridgeback? Remington BDL Floor plate vs the M5 box magazine? I'll be adding this to a Remington 700 SPS Varmint. Which should I choose?
I assume your Rem 700 rifle has a BDL hinged floor plate on it already? If so, when ordering the stock select "BDL floor plate". This way your factory Rem 700 floor plate will drop right into the stock. Only select M5 DBM if you want to switch to a detachable magazine fed rifle. Which then you'd need to purchase a M5 style DBM for that.
I have a savage model 110 fcp in 338 lapua. Do you have a ridge back to fit it?
at this time we do not, we are working on having stocks that fit the savage 110 by the end of the year.
What is the recommended action screw setting?
we recommend 45 in lbs.
Will the Ridgeback fit the marksman contour barrel?
It will but the stocks barrel channel cut out will need to be sanded open to free float it.
Will the ridgeback fit the m24 barrel taper #8?
It will fit the M24 taper but the stocks barrel channel will need to be opened up to free float that size barrel as its currently inlet for a Remington Sendero barrel. You can also order one direct from us already inlet for that size barrel through our custom shop in the "custom inlet" section.
I called and talked to Ryan about a Ridgeback for my Remington 300 RUM Sendero. I had a million questions and Ryan was very patient and knowledgeable. By the time I was done talking to him it would have been impossible to buy anything from anyone else. When the stock and bottom metal arrived the first thing I noticed was how well it was packaged. My barreled action dropped right in and the rifle not only looks great but it shoots fantastic. I have a 775 yard range at my house and the gun performed perfectly. I couldn’t be more satisfied. One last thing, I have been shooting and buying for over 45 years and when I say this was my best experience ever.......I meant it. Thank you for making a great product and for great customer service.
Very wel km made stock. Even paint everywhere. Seems hard to flake off. Very well balanced, but not insanely heavy. Fit seems very nice. Had to inlet a little behind lug when bedding because of lug thickness, bit had anticipated that. Also had to clear out a tiny bit on side of bottom metal to clear bolt release on jewell trigger. Nothing out of the norm though. Will definitely buy another grayboe!
Perfect fit for my match rifle! No bedding required and added some much needed weight and balance. Put everything together the day before a match, shot a quick ten rounds to adjust everything and shot a match the next day. Couldn’t be happier. Only wish is for a couple built in QD sling points on the forend but it’s super easy to add a couple MLOK sling cups. Great product and will be buying another!
I've been all over the map with bolt action stocks, save the aluminum chassis systems. From bargain priced to high end - I think the Ridgeback is a great value for the cost. The adjustable cheek riser, Mlok attachment locations, and the option for a drop in DBM sealed the deal for me - couldn't be happier with how it turned out!
I was unsure of the stock and was basing the purchase on the recommendation from a tactical officer. He was correct in his evaluation of the stock. it seats the action well and the barrel is free floated. Due to a really bad wrist my shooting has been few and far between. The drop on the wrist allows me to comfortably hold the stock and the group size is consistent with the factory 700 stock. The adjustability makes the Grayboe comfortable to shoot. I expect groups to continue to shrink as I spend more time with it. I purchased the DBM and it is really nice. Feeding is flawless and you can still drop a round in the open action and chamber the round. No more rounds caught up in the bolt lug recess. Both are definitely worth the money.
