Frequently Asked Questions

These are the questions we are asked the most. If you don't see your question here, don't hesitate to contact us.

Q:  How tight should I tighten my action screws? 

A:  When you order your Pro-Series® stock, instructions will accompany the product. On most stocks (Remington 700 BDL models) the front and rear action screws should both be torqued to 65” lbs. (front screw first; rear screw second). If you have a model with three screws, the smaller screw can be hand tightened as indicated on the accompanied instruction card.

Q:  Do I need a gunsmith to install one of your stocks? 

A:  No; our stocks are all designed to be a direct drop-in fit without any modification.  If you can tighten a screw, you can install one of our stocks.

Q:  What happens if my stock cracks or develops a chip? 

A:  Please give us a call (605-341-3006) or contact us here to get your return authorization number and send it back. Our stocks have a lifetime warranty. 

Q:  What is the stock made out of? 

A:  Our stocks are made of a dense polyurethane foam, Kevlar, woven fiberglass, and unidirectional carbon fiber all surrounding a 7075 aluminum bedding block.

Q:  Will the aluminum bedding block help my accuracy? 

A:  Yes, the aluminum bedding block is CNC machined to the exact dimensions of the action ensuring a perfect fit that provides a solid foundation for your action while your barrel remains free floated. 

Q:  Do H-S Precision stocks come with a recoil pad? 

A:  Yes, a 1″ recoil pad will come standard on all of our stocks. A 1″ Pachmayr Decelerator is available as an upgrade recoil pad option.

Q:  Are your magazine conversion kits a direct drop in fit? 

A:  Yes, dimensionally they are the same as a factory hinged floor plate.  However, minor sanding is generally required just forward of the trigger guard area of the stock.  Watch our instructional video to see how simple this process is. 

Q: Will the magazine conversion kits fit AICS mags?

A: No. Our kits are a proprietary fit to H-S Precision magazines.

Q:  I have an aftermarket barrel installed on my rifle, will your stocks accommodate a larger barrel contour? 

A:  Yes, the majority of our stocks are designed for factory barrel contours. However, we do offer a variety of stock options that will accommodate after-market barrels with little to no inletting on the stock. 

Q:  Do you still offer the older style Gen I boxes? 

A: No, they have been discontinued. 

Q:  How can I tell if I have the Gen 1 or the Gen II magazines and floor metal? 

A:  The Gen II will have a polymer boot around the bottom of the magazine box and will also have a four-digit number stamped on the side of the box.

Our History

Tom Houghton Sr., a former Army drill instructor and passionate benchrest shooter with a background in chemistry, combined his diverse interests to establish H-S Precision in 1978. After working for a chemical company in New York State, Tom and his wife Vivian sold their farmhouse and invested every dime into starting the company in Prescott, Arizona, diving headfirst into the firearms industry.

Known as an innovator, Tom Sr. revolutionized the field with his creation of the first fully synthetic rifle stock, featuring an integrated aluminum bedding block. This invention provided a stable shooting platform, propelling H-S Precision to the forefront of the industry. His pioneering work, which earned him several patents, also established strong connections with defense and law enforcement agencies.

Today, H-S Precision stands as the world's leading supplier of ballistic test barrels to the firearms and ammunition industries. It is the only company that designs, engineers, and manufactures every component of its sporting and tactical rifles, marking its unique position in the industry.
