Bonded to the outer shell and working in tandem with a set of aluminum pillars, this slip of carbon takes the place of a much larger and heavier aluminum bedding block. The RSCL allows recoil impulses to transfer directly from the recoil lug of the action to the outer shell of the stock, enabling the use of lighter weight fill material throughout the stock shell. This lighter fill is just one reason the Blacktooth is the lightest production carbon fiber stock on the market.
Available as an upgrade to the Blacktooth stock, the second generation 3DHEX recoil pad kills recoil unlike any pad on the market today. The first recoil pad to employ additive manufacturing at the production level, its interlocking series of 3D printed structures give its interior a distinctive honeycomb look. This set of collapsible voids function to stretch the time component of recoil, deadening what would be a sharp kick with other pads. Another benefit of such an open structure is the 3DHEX’s light weight when compared to similarly-sized pads.
The Blacktooth’s grip combines a relatively thin wrist with a healthy ambidextrous palm swell and a substantial thumb groove to promote proper form while shooting.
The minimal yet versatile forend of the Blacktooth employs a 1” flat along its entire length, allowing for stability whether being shot from sandbags, a pack frame or other hasty support. A standard QD sling stud enables the use of a bipod and/or sling, and the nose of the stock has been trimmed back to remove excess length and weight.
With a blend of weaves and styles of carbon fiber, the Blacktooth’s outer shell lends extreme strength to the stock while comprising less than half its total weight.

Weatherby wanted the lightest backcountry option possible so they used the Blacktooth stock.
