What's the function/dysfunction of the Mannlicher stock on this rifle? I think its pretty but don't understand it?

No particular function beyond carrying on a prior tradition in long arms of full length stocks.
I like 'em.

All it does is make the rifle a little sexier.

Only disadvantage I've heard people talk about is the barrel making contact at different points along the length of the stock, possibly causing some accuracy issues. A non-issue since most shots will be less than 100 yards for .22's.....more of a concern for centerfire models that have longer distance capabilities.

Rembrandt, that is a beauty. I'll bet they were tastey too.

I tested one in .22 Mag a few months ago, liked it. If I weren't such a levergun guy I would have kept it. :)

Full stock or Stutzen. Well balanced excellent sights. The .22lr has a plastic forened cap the centerfire 527s have a metal cap. The 527s sights aren't as nice as the 452s its only a dovetailed metal rearsight, I think they should have switched these around function wise. I think the lines of the full stock are just nicer as Rembrandts offering clearly shows I don't have a problem with the extra wood it is pretty thin up there so is negligible in added weight.

All it does is make the rifle a little heavier. :barf:
