KRG Whiskey 3 Chassis stock review

Recently KRG sent me the new KRG Whiskey 3 Chassis Gen 3 folding stock to test and review. I spent some time with it using a Remington 700 short action. This is a very nicely made unit, please click below to find out more info.. The KGR Whiskey folding chassis stock features an all aluminum construction, is compatible with AICS mags and is well thought out and executed. It uses a channel Vbedding system for maximum contact between receiver and stock for an ultra rigid platform for your action.  Stiff and solid are good for accuracy.  There is no need to bed the action to the stock, simply drop in and tighten the two action bolts down. You can adjust your length of pull, check rest height and cant on the butt plate.  There are numerous threaded holes on the stock for attaching accessories. The unit offers two grip sizes and I received the standard one, it had good ergonomics and worked well for bench or prone shooting positions. I was able to quickly get the stock dialed in to fit me right and it proved to be comfortable and provided a solid and consistent mount with regards to cheek weld and I always felt like I dropped into a good position. The folding mechanism was easy to use and transitioning between open and closed was a no brainer.  Most importantly to me was that in the shooting position the lockup was tight and there was no play. All in all I would give the KGR Whiskey 3 chassis folding stock high marks and I can not think of anything that I would tweak.

    Awesome stocks, I’ve got one on a 700 Remington short action. By far the Most comfortable stock I own, I’ve also got Manners, and ACIS. This KRG is my favorite so far.

    I do have a observation. Today I recieved a spicket mount, and a couple of sling inserts. I discovered that the screws used are ” button head” what the F–K is a bottom head. I also noted a very tight screw hole, which is likely going to require me running a ” tap ” to clean the threads up, so I don’t bogger the screw hole up.

    These stocks are clearly able to except a lot of attachments, which is fantastic, to a point. Which leads me to my observation. How much is enough. I realize that question is subjective, and we all have specific personal needs for what we hang on our rifles stock.

    I’m excited about KRG, and the fellas doing the R&D. What I’m currently dissappointed in, is having to tap a screw hole,on a new stock, and cheesy button head screws. I’ve now got to go out and purchase ANOTHER set of drivers. That will cost me at least another 75.00 as I will only purchase quality tools.

    I concede that these are truly minor issues, it’s just that when I spend this kind of money on a stock, I expect it to be rock solid from the bottom up.

    So now that I’ve pointed out minor issues, I’d like to offer solutions. Upgrade the screws to something solid, like torex, or Allen heads, something the common man uses.

    I used a torex driver on the screws, as I THOUGHT they were torex tips, I screwed up the heads, which leads me to believe a very soft screw is being used. Against for the money being spent , high quality is what the consumer pays for, and is paying for.
