a carbine 400 in one of the short stocks would be phenomenal for a lady or junior , I, m trying to get round to sorting one for the missus
this makes more sense to me than going for a second hand limited adjustability gin b or whoever stock that has been fitted for someone else despite its apparent good looks .
Quite honestly the top personalised stock makers wouldnt regret sending one of these out to a customer to use as a template , despite its marmite looks I rate it nearly as good as the gorgous ftp stock, its also dead to shoot , 200 grammes lighter front end than an ftp as well,
Matt from sureshot is in talks as far as I can remember for an adjustable pistol grip rest and cantable ( is that a word ?) Hamster , perfect ,
I, m gonna fine tune my woodwork and go for a hydrographics dip on it , hmm maybe knotty walnut me thinks


FTP900 MTC connect,Welhamanium internals -sorted
HFT500, ACZ stock MTC connect
TX200 Mk3 CS1000 stock, hawke vantage sf , Nick G internals
Steyr ?, maybe , they cant all be wrong?
