Re: Choate stocks

The Choate stocks are good I HAD one on my Savage .308 M10. What I don't like about them is the feeling. They FEEL plasticy or kinda "tupperwar-ish" and the butt stock is hollow (fixed that with some GREAT STUFF expanding foam) What I can see thats going to be a big hindrance for you is the left handed-ness Stockysstocks has a TON of better options for better prices but they are all right handed models.

Re: Choate stocks

A lot of people like them for their built in v block mount, but dislike the weight.

Lots of good features, especially for the bench.

Re: Choate stocks

Being 100% honest mine was an amazing stock. I will NEVER bad mouth Choate stocks @ all as far as quality. My ONLY beef is the feel of them.

Re: Choate stocks

Is it just the finish that makes it feel like that? I plan on repainting it do you think that will help?

Re: Choate stocks

Correct its just the finish. It feels more "glockish" as opposed to Hs Precision or Bell & Carlson. Painting it could change the feel of it. Just make very sure you ruff it up some as the factory texture will not let paint adhere to it well (voice of experience.)
Keep in mind I tried to refinish mine with some spray in bed liner.
