D7581447-7B8B-4200-BB40-57CF2784860C.jpegHad a flat top T4A in hand from a match table. Sent it in for inletting and install of Gen II mini chassis and Area 419 weighted arca rail. They received it June 29th and I had it back in my hands September 14th. Work looks great and I'm excited to get my .223AI put together once the action comes in!

How do you like the T2A compared to the bravo, I’m looking to find something with a similar feel
The forend on the T2 is wider which I like. Grip thickness is similar. The Bravo is awesome for what it is, but I LOVE this Manners stock. The forend on the bravo is short; if I would’ve kept it, the next thing I would’ve done was add a spigot to put the bipod further out.

    Good to know, I like the ergonomic of the bravo but that fore end is definitely to short for my liking. I keep toying with the T2A or the PRS1

    FWIW, I’m on the short end so I ordered mine with a 13” length of pull. It’s about the same length as a Bravo with no spacers; perfect for me.

    I just picked up a PRS1 that I need to ship over to manners to have them add a LOP kit

    MCS-TCS still waiting, too excited to give it a run 😭

    ordered 12 March 2020
    Still nothing

    i’ve been told 3-4 weeks twice over a 8 week period.

    I’ve had forms 4s come back faster recently.

    I hope it’s worth the wait!

    You made an order as the country was shutting down... They will get it to you. It will be worth it.

    Bet it’s soon sir. Did the Group buy and ordered my TCS on 3/31. Paid for yesterday. Mine was pretty simple spec, TCS in GAP and 2 flush cups.

    Its a coating they use on cars think of it like a wax but its a chemical bonded coating essentially

    On cars last years and make it easy to get stuff off the paint ext while providing a good shine

    Not exactly hard stuff to put on if you know what your doing but also should have a clean contaminate free surface before applying it

    In this situation it wasnt really needed a wax or a spray sealant would have done the trick but i had a buddy that does it professionally with nothing to do on a sat night polish it up by hand and apply it to gloss up the finish a bit.....also anything i get on the gun will now prolly dam near slide right off

    I was going to ask why not just order it in gloss from Manners, then my reading comprehension kicked in and noticed you’d ordered a flat-top. lol

    Total weight with MTU 26" weight Area419 arca rail,bipod and homemade butt weigh is 18.8#

    Balance point is about 2" in front of magwell.
    I'll get a picture of the balance pont this afternoon.
    Not bad, I’m trying to figure out what I’ll be sitting at with a similar setup

    They do them 3 ways

    Custom order (self explanitory)

    Flat top - these are stocks already painted ext but ready to be machined for what ever setup you want (lead on my mine was 8 weeks got it in 4)

    Ready to ship - stocks that are ready to go and have been machined for a certain action and barrel profile

    Does anyone know if it’s possible to get a PRS1 with heavy fill? I like the stock design, just want a bit more weight in it.

    I ordered my Manners T2-A GAP stock on April 10 received it on December 11. I had to open the trigger well a little so the Accutrigger would work properly. I’m very impressed with the quality of the stoke. Thanks Robert for all of the help!1CD2B527-CCAA-41D8-B3FD-89A7D63F4466.jpeg

    On the flat top stocks: are they right/left hand specific or is that part of what gets cut to order? The website lists most of them as right-handed but allows you to select either right or left hand as an orientation.

    Thanks

    Pretty sure they can be cut it either way since it’s essentially a blank slate.

    Just paid for my PRS-TCS from the group buy. Ordered beginning of April.

    No shipment notification yet but looking forward to it.

    I just got mine that was ordered in March, you're going to love it!

    Here is the set up I put together for Mammoth 2021, 14lb as it sits. With all the weights thrown in and a steel 26" barrel it comes out to 24lb. Super happy with the ability to adjust and "customize" the weight and balance! Crappy picture I know...

    Ordered a PRS-TCS on Dec 3, was delivered on the 10th. Not the norm I know but I'll consider it reparations for all the times I was quoted "Oh it'll be a couple of weeks or so" --- 6 months later. (Not talking about Manners, this is my first MCS)

    I'm assuming you ordered a one off the website and didn't have a one built. That's generally very quick, its the custom order that takes 6 months or more.

    No actually I ordered and paid a deposit on the 3rd, fully expected 3 months or more. Got a call on the 7th wanting my cc#, person who WAS getting this stock backed out.

    This thread is making me anxious. I ordered a PRS1 back in July, and from the looks of it I am still 2-4 months out. Not a big deal as I am waiting on 300 PRC lapua brass, but the anticipation of what is coming is killing me.
