Manners' bed just like any other stock. I had a T2 for quite awhile, when Thomas first came up with the T2 he offered some up at a greatly discounted rate in order to get some out there and he wanted opinions/feedback on it. It was a nice stock and had very similar ergo's to the McM A5's that I'm fond of. The forends of the 2 were very much the same, the grip/angle was also much the same. The difference was the lack of a butthook on the T2 and it was not offered in a gelcoat finish. I really like the butthook on the A5's and use it quite frequently while shooting from field positions and find it very handy. I also prefer a gelcoat finish on the stock.
Quality wise, it was every bit as nice as my McMillan's, there was just the personal preferences that I outlined above that didn't work for me.
I just simply bedded the action and poured a small barrel bad on mine, I also bedded the bottom metal on this one.
