NRA 2014: Hands-On with the SISK STAR Rifle Stock

IMG_2036

I was able to go hands-on with quite possibly the most customization precision rifle stock ever. The SISK STAR starts as a base receiver upon which everything is bolted on separately. The fore-end, stock, and other pieces are all additions to the receiver. Each piece is fully customizable. The stock is especially notable for its options including length of pull, cheek-piece height, and interestingly – cant.

Sisk has detailed videos of the adjustment possibilities on their YouTube portal. 

Constructed of CNC’d billet aluminum, the stocks are rigid. Made to the same design specs of their $6,500 complete STAR rifles, I would expect the accuracy to be well worth the money for those looking for it. Adjustments are very easy, using large checkered wheels to loosen and tighten the various adjustment points. When clamped down, there is no play between the components.

 

As a bonus feature, Sisk is offering a fore-end that can adapt any AR-tube to the platform. Additional foreend options include space for tactical lights and lasers. With anodizing, the STAR can come in nearly any color.

Currently offered for only the Remington 700 (long and short) actions, the STAR has a retail price of $1,349. The rifles will ship broken-down into a ammo container.

    For $1350 I would expect a nicer/fancier adjustable cheekpiece. Lookd like they just slapped a $60 Karsten kydex cheekpiece on.

    A nice overall design, but not for $1350! The open cheek piece should have rounded front and rear, and I’m not a big fan of the bolt heads being exposed on the shooter’s side. With the rifle resting on the cheek there is still a lot of face to rest on the stock, and although rounded those bolts stand out as a rough experience.

    I’m also wondering how the sharp 90-degree angle of the pistol-style grip would affect the shooter’s grip. Most LEO snipers I know prefer to rest their thumb on the tang to avoid a potential counter pressure squeeze if the thumb is wrapped around the grip. This form doesn’t seem to provide for a rest like other stocks with a more rounded top to their pistol grip.

    $1350 for that! Thats more than Accuracy International’s AX chassis.
