There is a lot of play in the front of the stock, especially when a bipod is mounted, and you can make the stock contact the barrel with just a little lateral pressure on the bipod.
The rubber was another issue. I usually paint my guns like this, and I thought the paint job would have issues with the give of the rubber.
The recoil pad is also kind of shaky, and really bugged me. To be fair though, they all do. I dont know why the stock makers seem to feel we need a recoil pad. The least they could do, is offer the option for a nice butt plate that would replace it, but so far, Ive had to order a generic oversize blank form Brownells, and fit them to just about every gun I own that came with one. The new B&C I just got is going to get the same treatment here soon.
