I really do not need the corrosion resistance of the Weather Warrior, but if the accustock will make an appreciable difference that is likely the way I will go.
Well let me put it this way. A lot of people spend a serious amount of money to get the advantages that the Accu-stock offers. That is an aluminum bedding block specifically designed to fit the rifle of your choice that it is offered in to provide the most accuracy possible from a factory rifle. With that said, a buddy of mine has their normal synthetic that just uses a pillar bedding system and shoots very small groups. I could do the same with my VLP. His only complaint (accu-stock corrects this issue) is that the fore arm is very flimsy when under pressure from a bi-pod.
Some people don't like the feel of the plain synthetic offered and I have to agree, but the rifles are still accurate. I upgraded to a Bell&Carlson A2 Medalist to get the aluminum block bedding that comes with the Accu-stock. I also wanted a pistol grip type feel when I lay prone, so it is a matter of personal comfort as well.
I have held an accu-stock rifle and fired one and find them to feel a whole lot better than the typical synthetic. On the other hand getting the plain and synthetic and upgrading to a B&C Stock is really not that expensive of an endeavor.
Look at the Mod 14 classics w/ a wood stock. I think they come pillar bedded and if not, a good bedding job will do it wonders and make it a real shooter. I did that to my brothers rifle and went from a 1.5" to .5" at 100yds. They are really nice rifles in my opinion.
