I love them! How do you keep them from getting mixed up other than the numbers?

They have our initials on the butt of pistol grip area, and our names engraved in the floorplates. Otherwise, they are hard to tell apart, and we mixed them up a couple times while cleaning and shooting them this last weekend. It has been a fun project for us and we look foward to using them this fall.

TMR and Toyotasaurus,

Those rifles ain't nuttin but fine. That's what I want my next custom rifle to look like. right now I only have a pretty barrel to stare at.

How do you guys like those Manners stocks? I've been thinking about ordering the same one you have on those beauties.

Nice job on the paint!

I really like this stock, very light and comfortable to shoot. The grip and forend really fit my hands well. I'd definitely buy another. As a side benefit, they required very little finish work!

Jimbo,

You will really like the Manner's stocks. These have the carbon fiber shell, so most of the weight is in the butt. The rifles balance pretty well for their size. On the bipod, they just kinda float and are very stable. When you get them, Tom has the painted and finished already, they just need bedded. I wish the his OD green would have matched a little better as it would have eliminated that step. The only thing I have noticed, is that on most of his stocks, the ejector port isn't quite long enough. I lengthed these to match the action so it looked a little better.

Thanks for the input guys. I believe that stock will fit my next build just right.

Get'm all dialed in and next huntin' season let's see some antler pics, with those guns included of course.

TMR, I have started to gather the components for my 338LM build and am looking at the McMillan A-5 versus the Manners T-2 or T-4. I have a Stiller TAC 338 and a Broughton fluted 1-10 twist that goes 1.25 for 6" and will finish at .9 at 30". I will be using either Seekins or Badger DBM. Any input on the Manners versus the McMillan? By the way, beautiful rigs.
