Though my main stock for my socom is a truck bed liner black painted walnut stock, I also tung oil finished one for a more classic look. I like it much more than I would have thought.
Yes Sir. Can totally agree with that. I have 60 of them now and they are constantly finding ways to better themselves. It may only be something slight, but there is always room for improvement.I put a Bradley cheek riser on it, and may mess around with some other configurations. Still in the experimenting phase.
yeah, it is a never ending process of trade offs. I enjoy the process, though.In my far more limited sampling, the benefits of trial include identifying the error, or sifting through the just fine to discover the euphoric.
I think it's interesting that in my combinations tried so far, the only one that couldn't be made lame by a bad selection, or a great idea, is the standard configuration in a wood stock and a sling. It may not help me see better, but I can't find a problem with it, at least within reasonable expectations of a meaty battle rifle.
I like whiz bang as much as anybody, but the more you pile on, the more you realize that everything is a compromise one way or another, and when you get something, you lose something.
