    Noise of Carbon fibre stocks

    Hi all,
    Looking at getting a Stug or Senator carbon fibre stock but would like to know from you guys out there that have or used one if they make that hollow noise when hunting in tight scub like the sh*t tikka plastic ones? This stock is for a bushpig rifle.
    I stuffed up 3 stalks the other day with sticks and scub hitting the stock and spooking the deer . The best stocks I have had for no noise was the HS Precision stocks on my old Rem 700 LTR's, the con was they were heavy.

    Low density expanding foam has worked for me inside carbon bike frames, would expect it would work just as well inside a stock

    In answer to your question I would say they are the same noise wise if you bang them against stuff.
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    if you're bush hunting and concerned about noise have a look at Hogue stocks - they're nothing fancy but the rubberised coating is real quiet and grippy.

    The only time my carbon one bothers me is if I have a sling on and the clips or buckles hit on it.
    bloody great stocks.

    As far as i am aware, all the CF stocks being made in NZ are filled with some sort of expanding foam type product.

    Yeah best not to tell them that you are even getting it, just fit it, and she would have been none the wiser (looking the same as the one that was on it is a bonus) ;-)
