Some of them don't have the aluminum bed block... Which is why some people don't like them. For example, the Hogue I had on my 10/22 didn't. Some of the Hogues I have messed with on some of the 700 SA rifles have been flexible. I have not tested one on a LA 700, that was ordered aftermarket.
I might have to look into them for my build I'm gathering parts for. If not, I will be using an old used CDL stock I can get for $50 at a local store. I plan on modifying it for my barrel contour to be fully floated, bed the action and recoil lug. And install aluminum pillars in it. I should have about $75-100 total in the stock.
