McMillan TPR?

Anyone familiar with the (new?) McMillan TPR (Tactical Precison Rifle) stock?

Thoughts?

    Really? What do you not like about it - what things are not attractive?

    I'm on the other end of the opinion continuum - i actually like it's appearance a lot, but i'm sorta 'eclectic' in my preferences

    For me, i want a pistol-grip for the great ergo's, butt-hook sorta thing for helping stabilize and a more useful fore-end for more varied use in field-shooting positions.

    I just dont like the "lines" on the forend and the cheek piece sticks out like a sore thumb unlike the A-5 styles. The stock doesn't look TERRIBLE like the howa 1500's stocks, but I just prefer the the other McMillan stocks. I will admit that it isnt as hideous as the A-TH stock they have... I almost puked when I saw it.

    gotcha. I'm not much a fan of those myself. However, they will be hidden under all my ghillie-flage so i won't notice them

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I like some pretty "ugly" stuff and you never know. I may try a TPR one day. Ill take function over looks ANY TIME.
