I thought about ordering a set of these or just go for the other Choate Varmint stock. How do the quality of the Survivor stock match up to the Varmint model stock?
I am guessing for the money they are a lot more solid.
The ultra stock is nicer, has an adjustable elevation stud on the bottom side of the butt and a much nicer recoil pad than any other H&R firearm. It also has 2 thick shims that can be removed to adjust/shorten the length of pull. The forend is wide and flat, has a bipod T-rail included.
Yeah I noticed that. Looks like a great stock-But then again, I wouldn't expect anything less from Choate. I have yet to actually hold either model yet though. My brother held a Survivor and he thought it felt kinda cheap. But I would like to make my own judgement on them though.
Choate is actually selling the Survivor stock a little cheaper than H&R I think. Selling them for $32.20 http://www.riflestock.com
Use the catagory search and go to NEF, H&R Shotgun & Rifle Stocks & Forends
Sorry Quick, I still think those new Ultra skeleton style stocks are the true embodiment of the term "Butt Ugly". :-D :-D (Although the new style forearm may have some merit for a strict target gun.)
I prefer the original "Survivor" stocks much, much more. Of course they were not my favorite at first, but once I tried them they became one of my favorites for a truck gun or a lightweight "carry gun" for long walking hunts, especially in the thick Maine woods or on snowshoes after winter Maine coyotes, each to his own I guess. Isn't it great though that we have this many options to choose from!!...<><.... :grin:
MSP, I'm gonna give it a shot, no pun intentded!! Will see how they shoot...I'm kinda interested in how the forend and bipod arrangement works out as a bench gun mainly for shooting colony varmints from my portable table. I'm not real keen on the looks either, but if it functions well, I can live with it. I have a nice set of cinammon laminates to go on it if it doesn't work out. :wink:
