I see it as a mindless combination of cool features. A classic European Mannlicher stock should go on a classic looking rifle. Not stainless. I do like wood on that one. I might start to get some emotion if I saw double triggers and solid rear sight. I am with War Eagle, not my cup of tea,
I have one that I gave my daughter, that I was thinking to send in and get an upgraded laminate stock for her and I to have a matched set of laminate mannlichers, but now I'm not as sure. Maybe if I save the walnut?
Here's my little girl with hers in .308. I don't want to boast about her, but I suspect she is quite possibly the best long-distance marksman in her kindergarten class.
