XM25 Stock pictures

For those of you interested in the XM25 and the progression of the McMillan stocks, here are some pictures.

First one is the original all black. It is very heavy compared to later models. Notice the swivel studs front and rear.

Here is a later version. Notice the camo colors, still has a front and rear swivel stud, and the Pachmayr buttpad glued on.

This is the what I would call late "production" version, from McMillan for 10th group rifles. Note the camo change and the fixed rear swivel and front stud and swivel. These were screwed into a "retainer bar" in the forend. Early retainer bars had four holes, later revised to three holes. The glued on Pachmayr pad remained standard on XM25 stocks. This was a Kapp requirement from the start.

A few more pics. And, yes, this is a Brookfield built XM25 on a commercial SAI receiver. There is a non-hooded aperture on a NM2A base. Barnett medium weight barrel with Brookfield mods, Brookfield modified gas cylinder, Brookfield gas piston, op rod spring guide, with liner and retainer bar awaiting bedding to complete the build.

One more quick question,were the XM25 Mcmillan stocks produced without the cutout to accept a standard M14 buttplate,or were they cut down and then the pachmayer pad installed.

Hmm interesting,so to be a original XM25 stock it would not had the cutout on top to accept a Std M14 buttplate,that makes sense seeing you would really have to take alot off the stock to Elimanate the cutout for the hinged buttplate.I think this will verify some members here who think they have real XM25 stocks when in reality they have Big Gun or Long Range Shooting team Mcmillans with the cut out for the hinged buttplate.
Also noticed real XM25 stocks had a rear stud not the Std swivel and a front stud not the Std front swivel that's riveted in.

I agree that this definitely helps verify a lot of information. Thanks for sharing M1AOH6!

Great pictures! Thanks.

I always find it interesting how many variations can be found on one particular rifle. What I have found to be true across the board is depending on who is building the XM25(army, navy) it had one common denominator " THE BROOKFIELD STOCK LINER". If you don't have that, you don't and won't have an XM25....period!

Seems like if you don't have the Pachmayr buttpad, you don't have an XM25, too.

M1AOH6, thanks for the post. Very, very cool.

Thanks from forceman, hytekrednek and XM25Ren
