    Does their DBM work with a standard BDL inlet?

    It does. But, some inlets have a slight over cut for the floor plate to register in. This is how my stock is. So it would show a white line around the DMB metal in the box area. This line could be filled or simply color matched and would be mostly hidden then.

    Similar question. I'm excited to see your project build is using the same stock I want to use for my build. For the DBM, what inlet do you specify when ordering the Manner stock? CA is not an option in their ordering tool. Thanks!

    The inlet is the same as the 700 DBM with the exception of the relief cut for the floor plate. I would make a phone call to the stock mfg. I am sure this cut can be easily omitted.

    The other thought would be to just paint the relief cut to match. Then both options would always be an option.

    Jeff how did you get 30cal 9 twist barrels from CA. They only list 10 twist on there site. I called about an 8 twist in 7mm a while back and they said they only did 9 twist and had zero intention of doing an 8.

    They do make a 9 twist in 30 cal. However, it is special order and did take a while to get. Another reason I ordered two. As they accumulate orders they do a 9 twist run as I understand it. We talked about this in a meeting with CA at shot. I offered to them that the 10 twist in a 30 for long range was becoming a thing of the past and they took note and may be stepping up this option. We need to remember that the largest group of buyers are not the long range community. But also we as a group need to do what we can to educate companies like CA as to our needs. When the need is large enough we will get what we ask for.

    Interestingly enough, we also discussed the use of zero cant rails on their actions with integral rails. I offered that no one needs a zero cant rail. Most every scope today will zero at 100 with a 20 moa rail and the 20 moa rail will fill the needs of the LR shooters better. The president of CA then told me they had visited this many times. The larger majority of buyers out there do NOT want a 20 moa rail even though we have explained to them it will offer no adverse effects. This is why CA only offers the 20 moa rails on their LR rigs. And also offers rifles like the Ridge Line and Mesa that come with no rails so you can add your own. So what does all this mean? We need to keep educating the general public buyers to the good in these options. And, keep asking CA and other MFG's for our wants and needs. They do listen.
