There was one at the 1000yd match at Bayou Rifles in Houston today, first I've ever seen. Looked like an excellent stock. I have a PR&T low boy that I am very satisfied with; it also has a longer fore end to balance better with the longer barrels (though now I have to stretch slightly to reach the joystick of my Shadetree rest top, and have to get out of position to adjust the mariner wheel).

Mine is a hair under 39" with a Tubb buttplate. I can <span style="font-style: italic"><span style="font-weight: bold">just</span></span> reach the joystick in my Shadetree rest top; if I want to adjust the rest fee or mariner wheel I have to get up out of position.
I will probably be in the market for a stock for an F-TR rifle this fall. At this point I'm fairly certain that I'm going to have my Varmint re-barreled and put a 30" Rock tube on it, at that point I'll need to put it into a stock.
The rifle I'm shooting now is in an A5. I'm positive that what ever I go with next time I'll have a real adjustable cheek and not a saddle. Whether it's an A5 or something else.
This is a old post I would like to bring back up and see if anyone any new input. I am looking at having a purpose built F-TR rifle made. I have looked at this stock online and I am fairly certain its not for me. However I would like to hear more about it and possibly see some pictures if you got them.
Jade won the FCNC last fall shooting an MPA chassis. I’m shooting custom hardwood, Cerus is putting out really nice wood, Kelbly is making some of the best composite stocks, laminates have faded out(they are heavy), the McM XiT is popular( but heavy in my opinion), and PR&T isn’t in the stock business any more.
I don’t know of anyone using a Manners, doesn’t mean they’re, not I just don’t know.
