I didn't opt for the folding stock as it just seemed mostly pointless, but now I'm wishing I had because the Ax stock would have been worth it for sure.

Ok you talked me into it. I need to sort out pricing and delivery after I get back from vacation one week from now. I know they will not be cheap so be prepared.

I was going to come post the link to the Sporting Services product page, but it looks like davidwiz beat us to it! Here's some pics... Looks like it is happening - at least on the other side of the pond.

I got a response from MHSA:

"We do not have the conversions here and they are not importing these to the united states. Sorry for the bad news."


I guess that answers that....we are SOL it appears.

It appears that MHSA didn't do their due diligence in researching before responding to my inquiry.

Sporting Services gave me a contact at AINA who responded:
"These will be available in the US, likely during the first quarter of 2018."

ETA: They aren't actually being imported from the UK. They will be made in the USA like the R700 chassis according to a subsequent e-mail.

Any word on the price and how/where to send for the swap?

I will be purchasing one when they are offered without question! So there is one more sold if Mile High or Euro Optic is listening...

One would have to assume since the stock is the same, that this will be compatible with the pre-2014 AX?

I wrote to Mile High a couple of weeks ago. This was their response:

They are on order, but we have no specific delivery time as of yet

I don't see ant reason they cant be converted over at the end user level. I think they are just pinned with a roll pin and bolted with 2 bolts if my memory serves me.

It is some form of an epoxy, I don't know exactly what. But a little heat and careful use with a very thin blade like a putty knife or similar will do the trick. Then when you assemble it use a high quality epoxy in the joint, its not rocket science.

Well....maybe Im not missing anything. I figured it would be around $600 or so but not that much. I guess i'll stick with the pre2014. Toolless adjustments is not worth that much to me especially since i can't see adjusting the stock for me. Not too many people shoot my rifle so set it and forget it is where I am at.

I enjoy the old thumbhole skins, so the AX buttstock is out on that alone for me. But $900 for the conversion? That's halfway to an AMG, or a crap ton of ammo or reloading supplies. I think you're on the right track.

Toolless adjustment isn’t on my list of needs either but having a captured bolt and thinner profile for packing is nice to have.

Wonder how much it’s going to cost to have it installed?

So who can update this thread with photos and end user reviews???

I have just picked up a non folding AT and think this is the way to go.
That’s actually a good idea. Buy a non-folder AT and save $400 vs a folder, then buy the AX conversion. After install, you’d probably only be looking at $600 more for the AT-AX than a regular AT folder.

The stock can be removed from a non-folder? I thought non-folders “couldn’t be converted”.

I guess one would have to confirm with AI or Mile High, but I was under the assumption that everything from the pistol grip forward was the same on folder vs non-folder. Meaning the way the buttstock assembly fits into the main chassis behind the pistol grip is identical. I believe both buttstock assemblies fit in and are bonded the same way. I could be wrong, but I guess I’d be surprised if a non-folding AT actually had an entirely different chassis than the folder.

What’s also weird is that the ATAICS fixed chassis are slightly different. The short action 223 and 308 fixed chassis do not have the flush cups above the pistol grip, so I’m assuming they would not have the through holes. However, the 300 and 338 long action fixed chassis DO have the flush cups, meaning the AX stock upgrade (or the thumb rest lol) would work.
