    I think you need to look at his feedback--check out all the negative comments and look at the star ratings-I think you might be concerned with that, which would make me look elsewhere--good luck---just becareful... If it sounds to good to be true--then it probably is...

    I just don't know. Wood (laminated or not) and composites are the materials of choice for most stock makers. There must be a reason for that.

    It would look better if it had a skin. Most high end stock have an aluminum frame and are covered with composite material. Like the AICS for the remmy, those go for $800+.

    That eBay one looks rushed to completion, or more like a prototype than a completed stock.

    it looks cool,you can tell they took time making the mould for the casting...but im also thinking why not just make a aluminum bedding block and put it inside a cool composit stock?....idunno? but it does look cool!

    Well, just to be a wet blanket, one of the things I like about Mosins is the wood stock! I really wish wood stocks hadn't gotten to be so spendy, because I much prefer them!

    I think he is looking for suckers, as his price jumped on this stock to make it 2-3 times the cost of the actual rifle.

    Yeah it is a trend with CNC'd gun parts, yes they are usually of good quality, but the markup is usually on the ridiculous side.

    4 1/2 lbs seems a bit on the heavy side to me. Being it is all aluminum
    and has very little give to it, I'd think the felt recoil would be some what harsher than a wood stock. Its not styled too bad. I believe his asking price reflects all the included accesssories. I'd rather have a stock for the Finish M28/76 if I were to build a modern type sniperifle.

    I just really like that look with the pistol grip to it. Would like to build one with something similar to the draganov sks stock. I have seen one or two on the net, but how people do it is beyond me.

    Not to crap on the efforts of someone making something from scratch and trying to make money from it, but wow, that's an ugly and really uncomfortable-looking stock. Awkward visual proportions, bubbly cartoon handle, sharp knife edge on the handle that can't be fun on webbing of the thumb, and whats the point of the front grip?

    Just my 2 cents

    Much as I love my Mosin Nagants, I don't think I would use one to build a long distance target rifle.

    Well, beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.

    That's the ugliest stock I've ever seen.

    And there are reasons you don't see ANY commercial stocks made entirely from aluminum...talk about the worst material possible for absorbing recoil impulse...and I'm sure aluminum would be near the top of the list.
