    Any folks out there have a bartlein #2b in a manners eh1? I have seen a few with #3 bartleins but wondering what a #2b would look like. afraid it might look to "pencily" in a heavier duty stock such as the eh1

    I have 5 EH-1 stocks that have 3-B barrels on them. I am considering a 2-B build also. I think, with a proper inlet, that it would be fine.

    It will work, but will look funny. Another stock with that shape and smaller forend is the Mcm game scout.

    2B in a EH1 wont look good. What does look good is a Proof carbon barrel!

    Look at the ag composites alpine stock, very similar to the eh1 but cheaper, and has a higher comb. Shot my friends 28 nosler with one, very comfortable and great cheek weld even with 56mm obj. He used a fluted 3b.

    Mesa Precision has a stock called the altitude which is similar to a mcmillan game hunter without the monte Carlo cheek. I will be using it on my next build, it's also made by ag composites weighs 27oz.

    I just lucked into a discounted Game Hunter with immediate shipping for my current build. I really like the effective cast of the cheek piece on the Monte Carlo, and the height is ok.

    Otherwise, that AG Alpine would have been just the ticket.
