You can order the w3 back bone with the bravo.Any issues with going the KRGB with W-3 lug size? This is just in case I go bigger lug later on? Will it fit? Any issues with using the bigger W-3 lug slot with smaller recoil lug?
ARC's barrel nut system fit in the KRGB?
I saw that it wasn't included so I purchased it separate, along with the hook cover as well.I had the same experience as you this weekend...the offset seem bothers me. I emailed KRG, and they said its normal.
Did you happen to have the mag latch button included? Mine did not and KRG said that is not standard.
Their website has a LOT of information on it. I'd say almost too much information, or at least it could be organized a bit better. But I do recall seeing in the "detailed information" section that the extended mag release was optional and available in their accessories section.Well that would have been good to know, guess I'll have to pay for shipping twice.
it's the TRG folder. same thing as W3 folderOn the latest Precision Rifle Podcast, Howa's Matt Hornbeck said he was testing a Howa Bravo with the Whiskey 3 buttstock. I don't see the buttstocks listed separately on the KRG website but my wallet is morbidly curious.
Especially if you could mount a folding buttstock on it, that would be pretty slick. Would there be any practical difference between the Whiskey 3 and Bravo main and foreends?
I just wish KRG's Order Dept. would answer my email ! I want a Bravo with the LH Whiskey 3 base so I can make a LH Bravo chassis. I sent an email to their Info Dept,they answered by referring me to email the Order Dept.
It's been a week,and no response yet?
See my post #120 on page 3. The lug recess is pictured. It's 1/2" wide and will take a pretty big lug before the space runs out. That part of the chassis can be dremeled if that's what you want. It won't be seen on the outer skin.Newb question here. I just have a stock 700SA so I just got the regular bravo. If I upgrade the barrel etc later and get one of the bigger lugs that don't fit the regular bravo can I just clearance the stock with my dremel to fit or is it something that requires precise machining?
They are making a Tikka specific cheekpiece and it wouldn't take much work with a mill to open the magwell for CTR mags. It is tapered for AICS mags and you would need to take the taper out and use a different release lever if I remember right. There has been talk on here about a CTR mag version from KRG.Seeing mixed stuff here and I'm not too familiar with these. Looks like they do not work with CTR mags, and the Tikka bolt will run into the cheekpiece if you have it raised very much? Is that accurate?
If so, are they actually planning on making a version that works with CTR mags and where the bolt won't hit the cheek piece? I'd pick up one of those in a heartbeat. Probably not gonna spend the $ unless they come out with a direct fit like that though, especially since the Magpul mags apparently don't work either?
Thanks for the reply. I will probably hold off til they make a CTR mag version with a Tikka specific cheekpiece. These would be incredibly popular with that configuration.They are making a Tikka specific cheekpiece and it wouldn't take much work with a mill to open the magwell for CTR mags.

German Gun Stock, McMillan, Bell and Carlson, and several other stock makers do CTR mag inlets so you can use your factory bottom metal. I think Manners makes one that uses factory bottom metal too. McCrees made a CTR mag chassis, not sure if it is still available.I don’t think they have any plans to make anything for the mags.
Cheek riser - yes
CTR mags - probably not
Does any chassis out there actually take ctr mags? I think you’ll either have to stick with your ctr stock or have something like a manners inleted. If you want a chassis, you’ll likely have to ditch the tikka mags.

Where are you guys ordering your GGS? Their website or another one?McRees is a chassis. My GGS has an aluminum mini chassis in the stock similar to Manners. Pretty good deal for the $$, 3.5 lbs, no bedding required, and I used the factory bottom metal and the 2 extra mags that I picked up for $130 for 2.
I bought mine direct from them. Thomas is a good guy to work with once you get through the language barrier. $800 +/- delivered depending on how many flush cups and sling studs. If I were looking at a lighter hunting stock, I would consider their Ranger.Where are you guys ordering your GGS? Their website or another one?
You can have the mag well machined to fit the CTR mags. I believe you will need the KRG TRG mag catch also. Massoud should be able to answer this.If they don't make a model that's compatible with CTR mags, it effectively adds $75 to the price of the stock for every CTR owner. That's probably a deal-breaker for me, especially since I like the CTR mag so much.
Unless I'm just horribly mistaken about the price of AICS mags.
