Owners Manual

Custom Collection® Hunting Rifle Q&A:

1. If you have an older McMillan (G.Mac/Harris) etc. that needs repair, can it be sent in for gunsmithing services?
Yes. Older McMillan rifles will be covered under their original warranty with the exception of rifles produced between 1987 and 2000.


2. What is the difference between the Dynasty®, Prodigy® and the Legacy?
Each model is designed with a specific use in mind for the rifle. The stock design and calibers offered are chosen specifically to match the concept we developed.


The Prodigy® is our “lightweight” mountain rifle. It is easy to carry, easy to handle and lightweight with calibers perfect for goat, sheep, whitetail, and elk.

The Dynasty® is our “magnum” rifle. The stock is designed to reduce felt recoil. This rifle is chambered in magnum calibers from 270 WSM to the 338 Winchester Magnum.

The Legacy is a classic traditional American hunting rifle with straight comb and shadow line cheekpiece in standard hunting calibers. It’s a rifle Gale McMillan would own.


3. Which is the lightest rifle?
The Prodigy®, Dynasty®, and Legacy all weigh the same provided they are in the same caliber. Although the Prodigy appears to be the lightest, each stock is made with the same amount of material and all three are identical in weight. The difference in weight is attributed to the length and contour of the barrel and the length of the action.


4. What kind of barrel do you use?
McMillan uses Schneider or Lilja match grade stainless buttoned barrels. They are the best barrels on the market. We don’t distinguish between the two, and we use both to insure we always have a steady supply of the finest barrels available. If we made our own, we would not be able to make them any better than the two we use.


5. What type of trigger do you use?
Jewell. They are the finest triggers on the market and the quality is indicative of what we expect of a McMillan rifle.


6. Can I get a rifle in a caliber other than what is listed for each model?
We are currently transitioning away from being a custom gun builder. We chose the calibers that we offer because they are tried and true and offer the best overall performance in accuracy and dependability. Because we keep these rifles in stock and have an inventory, we have to be very particular about the calibers offered. Each caliber added increases the number of rifles we keep in stock by about a dozen. However depending on the caliber, it may be possible to order a “custom build” for a little while longer. At some point, we will not take any more custom orders but for now, we can check and see if we can chamber in the caliber you are looking for.


7. Can I order a different contour barrel or can I get a fluted barrel on a Legacy?
Because we build these rifles to specific specs, the barrels are ordered months in advance and are ordered to specific specs and calibers. Changing barrel dimensions or fluting a barrel constitutes a custom build and we do not offer this option at this time.


8. Can I get a molded in color on my rifle’s stock?
No, because our Custom Collection® stocks are made with EDGE® ultralight graphite technology (except for the Heritage and Prestige) and are 100% carbon fiber/graphite, molding in color would add 3-4 ounces of weight to the stock and would defeat the purpose of using graphite to reduce weight.


9. Can I get a muzzle brake installed on my rifle?
Yes. We can install a muzzle brake on any of the rifles we offer; however, because the muzzle brake needs to be installed prior to metal finishing, it may take anywhere from two to six months to get your rifle. If we have a like rifle in process as an inventory gun, we will put your name on it and finish it as soon as possible. If we have to start from scratch with the rifle, it may take six months.


10. Why do your rifles cost so much more than a Remington, Winchester or even a Kimber?
Each of those is a production rifle, mass produced by the hundreds if not thousands. Every McMillan rifle, though we offer a line of rifles produced to specific requirements, are all made one at a time. Each bolt is fit to a specific receiver and hand lapped. The firing pins are fit to each bolt. The cocking cams are filed and fit by hand on each receiver. We make our receivers in lots of 50 at a time, not 500 or 500 thousand. Each receiver is subjected to and passes six different quality control examinations.


11. What accuracy do you guarantee?
Our guarantee says you will be happy with the way the rifle shoots. If not, we will inspect the rifle to see if there is anything we can do to make it shoot better. If we find something, we will fix it with no charge. If we don’t think we can help, we’ll give you a full refund. In addition, we guarantee that if you are unhappy with the rifle for any reason, return it to us within 60 days and we will refund your money. In terms of group size, we shoot every rifle for accuracy using factory ammo, and we won’t let a rifle leave the shop unless it will shoot 1” or better at 100 yards. If a rifle will shoot 1” at 100 yards with factory ammo, the rifle will shoot ½” groups for those who hand load and are willing to tune the ammo to the rifle.


12. What is the difference between the LRH in .338 Lapua and the TAC®-338 Lapua?

The TAC®-338 has an adjustable cheekpiece, spacer system and a detachable box magazine and weighs about 11.5 lb. The LRH has no adjustments with a fixed length of pull and a standard floorplate and weighs about 10 pounds.
