You say thats a 9-13" bipod it looks realy short at the 9" setting?
Man you have good eyes LOL. You are correct VHMan that is a 6-9 inch. I just threw that on for the pics I do have a 9-13 I use for hunting. The 6-9 was a little to short for hunting in higher hay fields. Thanks.
Beautiful!!! That really kicks it, I've got to replace my stock as well.

The best way to show that a stick is crooked is not to condemn it or berate it,
but to lay a straight stick alongside it.
Nice looking rifle. Is this the X7 or the Xs7 VH? Im alittle lost here. I did not know that there was any after market stocks made for the full size X7's. The XS7's yeah, but non for the X7's. It's been awhile sence I been on here so I might be missing alot.

Boyds' has the Classic, Featherweight Thumbhole, and Prairie Hunter models for both the XS & XL models. They don't have a version specifically for the heavy barrel yet, but patriot did a great job of adapting one for his X7VH.
Remlin decided to re-designate both the XS and XL models as X7.

That's exactly what I want for mine, or even a barracuda stock to match my 17 hmr. I ordered my x7vh the other day , haven't even gotten it yet an knew that was something I wanted to do to it. What did you use to enlarge the barrel chanell?
what did the whole set up cost if you dont mind me asking?

Nice lookin' set up!
Hi Goaty: I used a dowel rapped with sand paper to start then dremel with course drum to hog out the inside. Boyds has a lip on the inside like a barrel channel that has to come out for the VH barrel to fit proper.
Hi hcdistad: I'm guessing about $180.00 total. I did put a limbsaver recoil pad on which you really wouldn't need also pillar and bedding which would be optional. You would want to get the metal trigger guard when you switching to your wood stock.
