Just finished fitting a new Yankee Hill forerail and Magpul stock. Thanks to Clayo for supplying the rail.

It's a SGC cast in a bucket of sand receiver.
Note the solid trigger guard



Fat Bob upper and lower, just like mine, made by pixies in Cornwall


ETA but it still looks a nice bit of kit

Metallurgy 101:

You use castings in compression, and forgings in tension.

Fat Bob thinks he can ignore these simple truths…

<Fat Bob Customer Mode ON>…Oh fuck!!!! The end of the lowers dropped off!…<Fat Bob Customer Mode OFF>…

I can't really see that a casting is going to make any difference in an AR lower (non-Military version)... There's not much compression or tension involved! You can get them in plastic after all...

The only broken SGC lower that I've seen pics of was damaged in transit by the courier. There could well be others though...

Where the lower rises up is were they will break… there is a lot of leverage on that point with a nice take down pin hole to focus the force. It's simply bad engineering to use a cast part for that.

Engineering plastics have similar properties to a forged part.

How often does this happen in the SGC guns?

Personally I just liked the look of it. I found it on an italian site whilst I was looking for something else and as the price was pretty resonable and I was looking for a new stock I went for it.

I used it for the first time today on the range and I was really pleased with it. I didn't realise they were that popular.

I've seen a few rifles with this stock on, and to be honest i quite like the look of it myself, I've got a stock ready for my 6.5 when i get it , but i might even get one of these myself.

I just don't get it


Apart from any 'tacticoolness', I guess it would be its adjustability - ensuring exactly the correctly cheek weld and LOP can make a big difference (hello, Mr. Tikka....)

Sorry Mark, I missed this. That's the saftey that it came with, I didn't realise that it was different. I know the previous owner had replaced the barrel and trigger so I guess he must have changed the saftey at the same time.

It has a certain appeal but I can't see myself shooting speed steels with it.
