The free-floated barrel channel additionally looks to pull out as much accuracy out of your barreled-action that you drop into this gunstock as possible as well.
Spike camps in the backcountry are a strategic necessity to tipping the odds in your favor and allowing you to do more with less.

The performance of a free-floated barrel, standard sling studs, and a thumbhole grip give you everything you need to achieve success, and all while keeping weight and size down.
Aside from choosing the correct barreled action you need from the Boyds Gunstock Configurator on their website, you do have a few other options to select from: choice of color, optional pillars, and either a satin or glossy finish. You can upgrade to a 1″ recoil pad also if purchased separately of the Spike Camp gunstock.
