    I'll let you know as soon as I try my second one out. The first one I bought is a basic model. The only extra it has are two studs in the front. The one that is going on my 270 AM has a saddle cheek piece and I had the UM flush cups put all over this thing. I'm thinking this will make it much comfortable to carry a 17 lb gun, but we'll see.

    Wildworks,

    I like the T-slot accessory rail on the forend, one thing it allows you to do is move your bipod back to increase up/down hill shooting angle. I built a round grooved stud that sticks out from the front of the forend to set in the Stoney Point "stix". I have alot of them film dipped in Mossyoak Breakup when they are finished.

    Can you put up a picture of the stud for the shooitng stix. Around here a bipod is not a great tool because of waist high weeds. I love to build weird things and I like shooting off of sticks- one I pick up or ones I buy.
