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
