I have been using them since they first came on the scene. They are very well made, easily on par with McMillan. So far I have owned 5 different models of Manners, and currently have 2 in my stable. I also have had a number of McMillan stocks over the years, but am down to just 1 in my stable of guns. I like the McMillans a great deal as well. My favorite McMillan so far has been Terry Cross' Sentinel (made for him by McMillan), but it is really a competition stock. I think you can buy a Manners and be confident that you are getting a top quality stock that will outlive you and probably your children's children. They make really good stuff!
