A question for all the Bravo owners. If some of you are familiar with the TRGs, how close does the Bravo approximate the feel of a TRG? Specifically, the trigger reach, grip feel and curvature of the cheek.
A TRG has a triangular shape cheek piece which I really like. The Bravo is rounded and thicker. The trigger reach was adjustable on the TRG so I don’t know how to compare that but the Bravo has a similar feel from what I remember.

The TRG stock feels much more solid than the bravo as you would expect. The bravo does feel like plastic and feels cheap in comparison as you would expect but it is the best stock in its price point as there really is nothing else comparable.

I don’t have a bravo right now but I did have one for my Tikka a while back but sold it here. I may end up picking up another that takes ctr mags though. Its a good stock.

The Bravo LOP is adjustable. In fact if you need longer, might want to consider getting the steel spacers as they really help balance out the gun if you plan on running a heavier profile barrel.

If you mean you need adjustable LOP for the Bravo: no you don't. bhahahaha. Since the adjustable LOP add-on costs almost as much as another Bravo, you might as well just put together another gun for whomever you have to share yours with...

I know you can put shims/spacers in, but I mean a fully adjustable length of pull. I do find it a touch short but not terrible but my shooting partner can’t shoot it worth a shit cause it’s way to short for him.

I just find it crazy the cheaper adjustable length of pull for the rim fire stock is 50-75 bucks but for the centerfire it’s the same price as the chassis. That’s the only thing that bothers me with them. Other then that, fantastic chassis

    @wade2big. Thank you for your impressions. I've never bought or ordered a custom. I considered the TRG to be fugly. Think inverted fish belly. I buy factory and alter to my needs. When I got behind the TRG it was as if it had been fitted by Purdey's. Still fugly but who cares. I imagine I can get the Bravo to work. Thanks again.

    I bet it will work for you. If it doesn’t for some reason you can sell it for a minimal loss. Think rental fee.

    What is the consensus on that bag rider?
    Wouldn't go w/o it. Can't beat the price either. Get both colors if you can't decide.

    On a side note, I have both the metal and poly tool-less butted height mechanism and the poly is very good. I needed the poly for less weight in the rear. It weighs less than two spaces as well. I think I actually prefer the poly to the aluminum from a user standpoint.

    Just getting back into precision rifles after a long break. Trying to go a little more budget oriented than I did the last time. Picked up a Bergara B14 18" 6.5, KRG Bravo, Pig 0311 Tripod and Pig Saddle, Viper PST Gen II 3-15, and mounted a Dead Air Sandman to it. I have an Armageddon Gear High Heat suppressor cover on the way, and I plan to pick up a ball mount later in the year.

    One of my coworkers is a SWAT sniper, so I'll be going out with him soon for a day of intro to PRS. Until then, I am running to Mile High every once in awhile to grab ammo and enjoying the hell out of this stock and tripod!

    went a little crazy with this one a while back. also learned the hard way to read the ingredients on the can, as the clearcot I used had acetone in it and caused it to run a bit 🤣 ...woops. Also packed about a 1lb of lead wheel weights into the stock and forend.

    Does anyone here have the enclosed forend installed that can also run their scope sunshade? I’m trying to figure out what height rings I need to try. Currently have a Gen2 razor in some ARC high (1.26” - 32mm) rings and it’s too low to fit the sunshade.

    I didn't realize you lived around here.

    Funny thing, I looked at the pics and thought it looked like JTAC. Then I noticed the wooden benches and then the blurry green car.

    Since KRG only allows LH shooter's to get a Black Bravo now, I decided to make mine look like wood using Alcohol Inks.
    This is for my new Nucleus Gen 2 223 build.
