Yep you have done a really nice job with yours.
Gary and I spent quite a bit of time discussing all aspects of my 3 piece stocks.
He took on board:-
How I shoot – all three positions that we use in FT etc.
The weight that I wanted – but it is not to the excess that you seem to think mate.
The shapes that I wanted (i.e. I do not want the fore-end to look like a G-C 'Steyr' fore-end or a Rowan replica but in wood.)
Gary has fulfilled my requests and I am very happy with the results.
As I said to Andy, we cannot all have the same thoughts over design as we are all different people, but practicality on the course would always come top with me.
