AG Composites is a veteran-owned company that designs and manufactures advanced composite products in Owens Cross Roads, Alabama. The company uses modern design software to create Computer Aided Design (CAD) models and quality carbon fiber, epoxy, and paint to make its line of rifle stocks.
While factory stocks come in a one-size-fits-all configuration, custom stocks often feature adjustable cheek pieces, ergonomic grips, upgraded recoil pads, and a design that helps reduce felt recoil despite weighing less than a standard stock due to using carbon fiber materials instead of traditional wood or fiberglass. A custom fit aids in achieving consistent accuracy while solidly housing the action, bottom metal, and precisely free-floating the barrel regardless of barrel contour.

AG Composites offers custom stocks with a host of options unique to each build. The AGcomposites.com/stocks website has a builder tool. Starting by choosing one of eleven base models, each stock is customized for your action size (long or short) and inlet type, bottom metal, barrel type and taper, color or camouflage, and finish options such as accessory rails, sling attachments, and texturing.
“We use modern design software from Solidworks and AutoDesk to create Computer Aided Design (CAD) models of every stock we manufacture,” Tandy said. “Our design engineers bring their aerospace industry CAD modeling experience to every stock we design. In addition, we use only the highest-quality carbon fiber, epoxy, and paint products to manufacture our premium line of composite rifle stocks. And, our proprietary manufacturing process is the ‘secret sauce’ behind our ability to produce best-in-class stocks with delivery times that are a fraction of our competitors. Consistency, efficiency, cost control, and frequent quality control checks are the primary drivers of each step of our manufacturing process. Our goal is to give our customers outstanding value and superior performance, and be the best in the business.”
Every stock is tested with the selected action, bottom metal, and barrel hardware before it ships to the customer with a typical delivery time of a few weeks from ordering. AG Composites and their custom stock builder is online at AGcomposites.com or by calling 833/AGSTOCK.
