The McMillan Group, known for their high-end fiberglass stocks for bolt-action rifles has announced the formation of a new company, “Grayboe”, to offer high-volume high-value stock systems for the consumer and OEMs.

The new company is launching with three stock types:

“The Outlander” is a traditional hunting type stock. Designed for the Remington 700, the stock is originally released for long-action receivers. The stock can accept barrel profiles up to #5. It is available now for $299, with the short-action and various colors to be available later this summer.

Up second is “The Renegade” which is designed for “tactical” applications. Unlike the Outlander sporter stock, the Renegade includes a built-in pistol grip and is patterned similar to the well known McMillan A5 stock. It features compatibility with heavier barrels and has a flat fore-end for bench rest / target applications. The Renegade is available now across a both Remington 700 long and short-actions priced at $349.

Rounding out the trio is the Fusion, which as the name implies, fuses the features of both the Outlander and Renegade. The Fusion maintains a pistol grip, but instead of the tactical-style stock, goes for a standard shape with raised cheek comb. The forearm is rounded, but maintains an oval shape for use in a myriad of situations. The Fusion is listed for $329 and will be available later this year.

Phoenix, AZ– June 22, 2016 – Ryan McMillan and the McMillan Group, worldwide leader in firearms industry innovation, announces the launch of Grayboe Stocks in association with the McMillan Group of companies. Utilizing new materials and processes, Grayboe continues the legacy of industry leadership that the McMillan Group has pioneered for more than 40 years while advancing stock technology throughout the entire firearm industry.

“When running the rifle company, we saw an opportunity in the mid level price range of stocks that are available to gun builders and OEMs.” Said Grayboe CEO, Ryan McMillan. “We had conceptualized the idea of creating a high quality, high volume, and low price stock in the past, and Grayboe brings that conceptualization to reality.”

“We have worked for several years to provide the industry with an affordable off the shelf fiberglass and epoxy stock.” Said Kelly McMillan, CEO McMillan Group International. “It took Ryan’s background education and experience in the firearms industry to perfect the process and bring it to the market.”

The idea behind the creation of Grayboe began over a decade ago when McMillan Fiberglass Stocks realized the need for a more efficient and cost effective way to make high quality epoxy based stocks.

Grayboe is the culmination of two years of intense R&D, which began by building on McMillan’s earlier successes and research. Having adapted cutting edge engineering and materials from various industrial sectors, Grayboe innovations led to the development of a manufacturing process that produces rifle stocks unlike any others before. The completely new process has established a high benchmark of strength and stiffness that others will want to follow. This newly developed method of manufacturing brings together high volume and low costs to the well established Epoxy based rifle stock market. Thru these efforts, Grayboe has revolutionized the way in which thermoset stocks are produced, filling an industry void that has been left empty for decades.

Grayboe Stocks cannot be equaled in durability, accuracy, or price.

    I before E except after T? It still rhymes, but that’s not it at all… 😉 You have the word tier spelled incorrectly in the title.

    • Alex

      Unbelievable, If you read the press release, the product is called Grayboe, not Greyboe (spelled with “a”, not “e”). That is three mis-spelled words in the title (to include the company and the product itself)

      • PK

        I didn’t see that before the edit, it wasn’t as glaring as the other two typos. All three are easy to understand for an early morning article, it happens!

        • Charles Montgomery Rockson

          FAIL in my book – won’t buy a product with such a crappy marketing campaign…. imagine the precision of the product if people can’t even spell.

  • DanGoodShot

    In other words… We found a cheaper formula= cheaper to make stocks=higher volume=lower prices =lower sales price=higher volume in sales =bigger profit. Hopefully. It sounds like a win win. Now, all I need to do is buy a 700…

    • PK

      “We had conceptualized the idea of creating a high quality, high volume, and low price stock”

      Sure sounds like it. Good! McMillan stocks are fantastic, if they can reduce the price and simplify them a bit for ordinary users, I’d own more of them.

      Frankly I’d love to own more of them right now, but they’re prohibitively expensive, so I tend to go with walnut or maple.

  • Gary Kirk

    That camo… Oh well, that’s what rattle cans are for. Can the renegade be used with standard floor steel, or does it require that magazine?

  • Drew Coleman

    Hopefully they’ll support other actions like Tikka or even Ruger

    • Harry’s Holsters

      I’d be down for one on a Tikka!

    • MeaCulpa

      Mauser 98 action would be sweet, there’s a whole world filled with used excellent muster 98 actions that could do with a modern stock.

  • Gary Kirk

    And is it Greyboe, or Grayboe??

    • iksnilol

      Graybae

  • Harry’s Holsters

    That’s a great looking stock for the money!
