Just put on the choate stock on my Savage .204 tonight. The scope is a Muller 8.5x25x40 dot. Took a few min. to put the cheek and recoil pad into a shooting position. The eyepiece comes right into position when I mount the gun. (that almost sounds obscene) Barring torrential downpours tomorrow AM I will go to the range for final adjustments. I know John it is MUD-ugly...but that is the beauty of the beast. It weighs in at 13 lbs. DEFINITELY a bench gun. StevePosted Image

That is exactly what I just ordered except for the scope. Thanks now I know that I won't be the only one out hunting with an ugly gun let us know how it shoots. Actually I think it looks really good.

LOL ... I thought I was the only one who got toes in my pictures. Guess not any more! How's it feel when "mounted"?

Well Hog I think it looks pretty nice myself. But the only thing that matters is it is comfortable and stops heart beats.

13lbs? Just right...lol Actually I prefer heavy predator rifles. My heaviest is at 12lbs, so a little lighter than yours, but still a (semi) pig. When you set them (hvy rifles) on a shooting stick they do not move, making better hits and is what I really like about them. And with a sling, they are not that bad to carry for short distances either. Just my 2 cents... Anyway, nice rifle (& socks) and Happy Yote HuntingFrank

This is my bench squirrel gun. I use a Contender in .223 for coyote. Now thats a nice shooting stick gun. I have a 3x9 leupold on it at the lower x I have a complete view but at the upper end Good luck seeing the hit. Check out my post on todays shoot.StevePS the one disadvantage with this stock is I have to remove the cheek piece (one screw) to remove the bolt.

Changed my mind and bought .223 also ordered a Nikon Buckmasters scope 6-18SF with target dot and choate stock.
