Great ideas but Im hard on stocks and I would hate to scratch a nice wood stock. Case in point I have a wonderful old Winchester shotgun with a factory diamond grade stock that was my great grandfathers. If I scratched it I would feel like s--t! So I'm going to go with a composite.

On that note anyone have a Manner and what do you think?

Thanks again

    I have a Manners CF stock on my 1K Light Gun that was built to the SG&Y print(Speedy built several prototypes) and I love it. I have a call into him right now about a sporter for my 300 Jarrett that I am going to build. I have the action, barrel and reamers -- just need a stock now!! May still do a AI on a Screwbean blank I have but the CF is calling me pretty stong!!
