The A-3 Sporter is a variation of McMillan’s A-3 tactical stock but with the drop-at-heel lowered from 3/8″ down to 1″ for better stock position on the shoulder for offhand and sitting use. The forearm has been curved in at the top to a “semi-beavertail” type for a more positive grip when hand holding the rifle. The pistol grip is the same as the A-3 and Adj. A3-5 stocks. The A3 is an ambidextrous stock and the forearm can be inletted for sporting barrel contours up to a Remington Varmint or #5 Douglas type contour. It is an excellent stock for general hunting and field varmint use with the famous “A” series type pistol grip.
