    Mine was 56225 and I got it July 10th. These stocks are sweet as hell. The top is gap and the bottom is high plains.

    What contour is that barrel? It looks like your weight is going to be very similar to mine in terms of scope. Trying to figure out how much weight I need to buy in the arca rail / and the back weight spacers to get it to balance right.

    For my MDT ACC I ended up buying a full internal and external kit, and ended up only needing 3 weights up front for balance, and removed the rear weight. I don't need to run a 21lb rifle... so I was lightening up my MDT ACC setup down to 19lbs.

    The GAP camo is a MTU @28". There are 2 weights in the rail and only one in the back. Balance is right where you see in the pic. The high plains is a m24 @26" with an SiCo omega. Thats a 3-18 on it. One weight up front and one in the back. Both balance almost exactly in the same spot.

    Thanks! I'm running a 26" Proof Comp Contour, so heavier than M24. Looks like I might get away with zero weights in the front. And a 41oz scope (Tract 4.5-30x56).

    Tom,
    I missed this special, but want to thank you for the Veterans discount you offer. Sure is different from what we experienced during the Vietnam era. I‘ve bought my 2nd EH1A from you in 1 year. Love this stock! I hope to visit and thank you in person when my barrel comes in. That’s the only piece I’m don’t have for my next build. I’m going to hand deliver to GA Precision and visit some kin in KC. Thanks for creating such a fine business.......can’t get this quality in China!

    So close... if only it came this week and I could've run it at the NRL22 nationals. That'd been sweet.

    Just checking to see if anyone that ordered a Manners PRS-TCS has maybe changed their mind or gone a different route and would be willing to sell their order/stock. Thanks

    How's it balance? Can you tell me your weight setup? Mine is finishing this week and need to figure out if I want to order some extra weights.

    I'm planning on running it with a Vudoo and my barrel is 5.8lbs. Though in your case it looks like you're running a carbon barrel so I'm guessing you need a bit of front weights if you want it to balance in front of the mag well.

    You can PM Robert and he will let you know. Or give Jim a call. I'm xx505 and mine should be finished next month-ish (hopefully sooner).
    Yeah I saw that I just didn't want to bother them. I'm 5740X so maybe I will be this month!

    Sorry for the late reply. I think

    Right now its balancing right at the magwell maybe slightly forward of it. I want to say thebwhole setup might be in the 14lbs maybe. However i am uncertain. So far i am in love with it. It looks amazing

    I got my Manners today and was really hoping that it'd work for my Vudoo in an 18" Kukri, but it is just too back heavy. I removed the rear weight, added all 7 weights to the ARCA rail, and it still was too butt heavy to balance in front of the mag well :(

    So... decided to just throw it on my 6GT for now, put the rear weight back on, and it balances well. Sitting at 20.2 lbs though!

    My MCS-TCS will be delivered Thursday. So will the new barrel I just snagged out of the PX, a M24 26" Rock Creek cut riffled 7.5 twist 🌈🐯
    Have a new DLC Mousingfield M7 and just got 400 rounds of Prime 6GT delivered Monday. Still need a break and scope. This place is costing me $$$, but looking forward to this build.

    @littlepod - How do you like that Leica? That is exactly the scope I've been eying with the PRB reticle.

    I like it a lot. I wish the reticle was a little thicker to use in lower mags but it's beautiful at 15+. Glass is slightly better than atacr/kahles.

    No locking turrets though. But the turrets are very tactile.

    How would you say it compares to a Razor G2 4.5-27? It's between those 2 for me & I suspect the glass is a little better on the Leica. I already have a G2 and like it. Heavy bastard though!

    Did you all have a hard time paying for your stock? I've called several times and left a message but have not received a call back.
