Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
You want more of a pistol grip on the stock so that you're pulling straight back against the trigger than up against the trigger hinge. But, a very nice rifle
That scope probably cost more than most of my long guns.........
Scope looks awfully high for a good cheek weld, but as noted, very nice. Christensen Arm Mesa. I used TinEye to look it up. I was curios because the photo make the ejection port look too short for .308, et al. It's not.
I'm with you on that. Wood stocks are how it should be. Can't tell you how many interesting conversations I had that started with "that's a good looking piece of wood on that rifle". But I've also had enough wood move and split when in the muck that I now keep that for my Sunday go to Church/range guns and have synthetic on all my "working" guns. Except my break-open shotguns; no need to go too far...
I abandoned Leupold for Schmidt and Bender PM2's. They're pricy, but they're better.
Bolt action and no external, detachable magazine. Now if it doesn't have a bayonet lug it's good (for the moment) in California.
Handsome is as handsome does. If it's shooting MOA - we can be friends. Regardless of how it looks.
