    I will respond with this comment.

    This is not a stock. It is a handle.

    I call it a tupperware handle because it is plastic and flexible.

    It is not realy a composit but a molded piece of S#!T.

    I will not use one on anything especially a rifle.

    And I guess you can tell that I hate them.

    The good thing about the tupperware handle is that it lowered the price
    of a good donor action.

    And P.S. there have been a few guys on this site that have made them shoot
    ok, but only after a lot of time,effort and money.

    My recomendation is to replace the handle with a "Stock" before spending any
    money bedding and stiffening it.

    Be careful what you ask for!!!! (How's That)

    I normaly don't take such a stand on hunting and shooting equipment Because
    there is always different experiences and opinions.

    But it is not a good piece of equipment and I hate to see someone spend time and
    effort trying to make it work.

    I went to the composits to improve consistancy over the wood stocks.

    I also like the feel and strength of laminates even better than the composits even though
    they are a little heaver.

    Even the wood stocks are better than the tupper ware handle, And a good bedding and
    floating will work on wood because it is more rigid .

    I am a do it your selfer and like to make things better but these things are a wast of time
    ( In my opinion )

    Good luck
