The Bansner Classic is made for those looking for traditional styling and a full length forend. There’s no reason fans of classic sporter style stocks need to settle for stocks with lines and edges that look like they spent too much time in the sun and melted. The Classic has crisp, clean lines and defined flutes for a bold and refined look. All the style in the world means little if the stock can’t handle a hard hunt in the back country. Like all of our stocks, The Bansner Classic is constructed of a combination of fiberglass, carbon fiber, and epoxy. This construction produces a resilient, lightweight, weatherproof, and high strength stock.

This model is designed for the pre-1964 version of the Winchester Model 70.


Some Key Features:

  • Over 50% stronger than our previous models while shaving off ~5% of the weight

  • High-strength fill for increased rigidity
  • Carbon fiber & fiberglass shell construction
  • High-strength integral pillars and recoil lug seat
  • CNC machined inletting for precise fit

Stock Installation Services:

We offer two complete installation packages: Signature and Essential.

Our Signature Stock Installation Package includes one of our lightweight, hand-laid fiberglass and carbon fiber stocks, a Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad installed to your length of pull, and our Signature Bedding which creates a full length stress free and precise metal to stock fit with a free-floating barrel enhancing both accuracy and aesthetics. We then finish the stock with hard-wearing epoxy paint in a tri-color speckle pattern and the metal in your choice of Cerakote to complete the package. This installation package will completely transform your rifle.

Our Essential Stock Installation shares all the same features but differs on the type of bedding. The Essential package replaces the full length Signature bedding with a “spot” style that includes bedding epoxy at the recoil lug. This ensures enhanced accuracy but lacks the aesthetics of a full length custom fit.


Stock Fit:
Our stocks are designed to accommodate factory and some aftermarket components and you’ll find they fit very precisely in most cases.  With both Gunsmith Fit and Drop-In Ready Stocks variations in models, production runs, and the installation of aftermarket parts can prevent the stocks from achieving the perfect fit out of the box.  While we do our best to ensure an excellent fit across the broadest range of components, we can’t guarantee perfection. For example: you may find that your barrel points more to the left or to the right in the barrel channel. Threads on the action or barrel that wander even slightly can easily cause this and isn’t something we can control. A great solution to this is bedding. As custom gun makers we carefully bed all of our rifles. In order to get the best fit we recommend you do the same (or have us do it!)
