    Spoiled for choice. . . . . . .

    Carbon fiber light weight stocks. . . . .
    We are spoiled for choice with what is available really even if there is a bit of a wait it adds to the excitement when they arrive

    Top to bottom some short action some long but weights much the same

    Bottom to top
    Senator standard rem shape 613grams
    Senator 75 style 634grams
    Senator skinny 582grams
    Stug stock 684grams
    McMillan nzhunter edge 660grams

    Not pictured since only took them out to weight after I done group photo. . . Sorry

    McMillan hunters edge 638grams
    McMillan hunters edge light 520grams
    Manners super light 662grams

    I guess Senator has his stocks sorted now and you didn't end up going with that other guy? How noisy are the Senators when knocked on shrubs?

    Nice line up. The recoil pads can add upto 100grams depending on the style. But the shoulder will thank you for the added weight.

    Tui_man2 what where the specs on the stug stock? I have just weighed one with a heavy limbsaver on it, was 600g
    Only went that way as it was considerably lighter than the hunters edge.
