I really like the Mannlicher stock, but I sort of wish the style was otherwise named. Have faced raised eye brows more than once when professing my love for the "man licker" stock style.
LOL! Yes I too regret the name. So I attempt a "European" pronunciation, like "man lee cher" to which I get a confused look and a "bless you!"
Nonetheless I really like this old rifle, even if I have to work around the name.
