Thompson G2 Contender Rifle
I think I'm going to get one of these for sheer versatility - besides, they look like fun rifles and I will be able to outfit the barrel according to whatever it is I will be hunting.
Currently, almost all my hunting guns are blued steel and wood (my turkey guns is composite w/ camo) because I'm a bit of a traditionalist. I can appreciate the weather resistance of the stainless and composite and I think they can look nice as well. I'm wondering what the weight difference is between the wood and composite stocks more from a recoil absorption standpoint than carrying a heavy rifle. As I mentioned, my turkey/waterfowl is a composite 870 and when shooting 3" shells I tire quickly of the sharp recoil.
Also, I don't see that walnut is available with stainless or blued with composite. Does anyone know if it can be had in either of the above combinations or not?
