I'm sure this has been asked or discussed before. But I'm stuck between two stocks. Both Manners, I'm stuck between the T4 and T5. I plan on going with mini chassis. This gun is used for hunting and some target shooting. I have no real way to get behind one in my area. So if you have one of these or have shot one please give my your feedback on it or why you would choose one over the other. Is the adjustable cheek piece worth the weight? She weighs 12.2lbs right now. Thanks in advance. Here is the rifle
I have a couple Manners Stocks. I own a T4 and a T3. I have shot and handled the T5.
My first comment is that Manners builds first rate stuff. Having said that, all of their stocks shoot and handle well. The T4 is what I have my competition gun in. I would not personally want to carry it in the hunting woods. Though hunting is different for everyone. Where I hunt is between 8200-9200 ft altitude. No motor vehicle access. Foot or horse only. Thus, I'm not particularly thrilled with the idea of carrying a 15 lb rifle and 50lbs of gear in a pack. The T4 and T5 are both great stocks, but they are not light weight.
I ordered a T3 to build my hunting rifle. It's a more traditional look and feel, but shoots great and is very well built. It's significantly lighter and I have a lighter profile barrel in it. It's more carry friendly for 3 hour hikes to the ambush spot.
Good luck. You'll be happy with whatever stock you buy from them. Worse case scenario, you'll put something else in that stock, buy another one and build a different hunting rifle..... I wouldn't be all broke up about that!
