Like you GSU, I went thru a bunch of decision making before finding my favorite stock...
a laminated E2 from LAW483.com
Scroll down thru the page and see all his options...
Tony also has one for sale so you dont have to get on a waiting list...
Weight about the same as a walnut and sometimes feels lighter because of the grip angle.
It fits me good and shoots better now. That's what sold me on the E2 that LAW483 builds.
I ordered a second one and it should arrive sometime this month. It's an olive laminate.
The one thing he is set up for now is shipping your rifle directly to him for a quality bedding job.
Then he sends it directly back to your doorstep.
Anyways, for another option, hope that helps.
