Fluted barrels look nice and the hype is they weigh less and run cooler. I have two guns that are identical and I was going to have the seconded one fluted. My gunsmith friend after doing lots of them said it would reduce the weight by less than a 1/2 pound if it was full length and very deep fluting. And to get the cooling effect it would need to be on a machine gun. In other words they look cool, I like the look myself. But the animals will never see it and you won't be firing it fast enough to see the benefits. ;) I like the normal stock Sterling the other don't look comfortable.

Hey Shooter,Mister Mister has an even better way to keep the barrels of his weapons cool. He doesn't shoot them!!! Works every time. ;) ;) db

Bozsik The other big plus to not shooting them is that you don't have to clean them, nor buy bore guides, rods or other cleaning supplies. The money you save can be applied towards your next gun purchase or scope.

Sterling, the laminate stocks aren't super nice. They're strong and sturdy, but not nice like what you'd find on a Savage or Remington. I think H&R laminates are too light in color especially in the sun, and the checkering leaves something to be desired. But they're ok. You can always get a NICE custom stock from gunstocks.com he makes several nice walnut and laminate sets for H&R rifles for about $100.I personally don't like plastic stocks too much, and I don't like the draganov style butt either. It all depends on what feels good to you I suppose. Here's my H&R laminate in the full sun:Posted ImageHere it is in indirect sunlight:Posted ImageAnd here it is in the shade:Posted ImagePosted Image
