A3 Sporter? Anyone have one?

I've posted something like this before, but it was a long time ago. Thinking of building a .260 on one with RV barrel contour, 700 SA, etc. I really like the look, but wondering what you guys thought about it. I love the normal A3's!

No, but I sure want one. I had the pleasure of getting to mess with one in a 700 LA rig a couple of weeks back and it just made me want one all the more.

They look like they would be the best of both worlds for hunting, tacticool, etc. They have the high comb, wide forend, but not bulky. Just about perfect.

I've got one that I can get very soon, just wondering what you guys thought!

Between it and the Bell and Carlson M-40 it's a real toss up for me. They are both fantastic stocks for someone like me who just feels more at home with a tactical stock yet needs a good hunting stock as well.

If you like a Sendero stock, you'll love either of those even more.
