BigMo and Sendero 72,

Got it down, thanks for the replies. Any suggestions on stock color or camo other than already mentioned?

rem hunter stock vs HTG, see the palm swell on RH and the slightly wider profile, RH also has a little cast off in the butt,

re: Snowy Mountain Rifles wants your input on ideal walking varmint rifle

Jim,

Thanks for the pics!

Just for some comparisons, I took measurements of the forends of five different stocks I have on hand.
1. M40A1 (original model smear) measures 1.78
2. B&C M40 style stock has 2.03
3. McMillan A3 measures 1.90
4. Manners T4A measures 2.47
5. McMillan A5 measures 2.50
All measurements were taken half way between the recoil lug and forend. The A3 was a LA stock. If you were looking for a narrow forend, the M40A1/HTG stock is the slimmest of these particular five. I think everybody already knew that but now you have an idea of how wide each forend is. I dont have the McMillan Rem Hunter stock on hand to measure.
Mr. Swift,
Any particular thumbhole stock you prefer? AICS, Manners GAT or T5 or other? How about color/camo finish?

the manners stock you spoke of would be fine sand colored camo works also. most of the thumbhole stocks i currently have are wood or a laminated wood. they however are to heavy and costly for a walking varminter.

I'll be quiet after this.

The stock I recommended is this one.




The one called the "Remington Hunter" says it has a wide forend and can be inlet for up to #8 barrels. I was assuming the two are different and the one above is narrower.
