Your gun’s action is housed in the stock. This is where your trigger components are, and where your receiver rests. A well-crafted stock is fitted to your gun’s trigger group and protects it from the rigors of use without interference. Your stock also holds your receiver, and has it firmly bedded in place to provide a rock-solid means of melding the two together. This precise fit and solid bedding are combined to enhance the shooter’s accuracy by providing a consistent interaction between the shooter and the gun.
Your stock must match how your barrel is intended to be set up. Some designs require a firm bed between the barrel and the forearm, while others need the barrel to float freely. In either case, your stock’s forearm needs to be rock solid. In the case of bedding to the barrel, the stock needs to be free from warping and must apply consistent pressure to the barrel. For a free-floating design, it has to protect the barrel from being touched and provide a solid place for the shooter’s hand or a bipod.
The stock is where the shooter holds the gun. For best accuracy, it has to fit the shooter and the gun both, and has to provide a solid, stable place for the shooter to grip the gun without interfering with the action or the barrel. Proper design ergonomics are one of the keys to ensuring that the interface between the gun and shooter is perfect, but unparalleled craftsmanship and materials are just as important.
