Hi, me again with yet another question.

In the near furture I will be purchasing a Winchester Model 70 in 30-06. I will be replacing the stock, which comes to my question.

Joel Russo can make me a laminated wood stock for $325, pillar bed it for $210, and install two flush cups for $30, for a total of $565 + $210 for a CDI DBM.

My next option is a Manners T5A. $475 for the stock, glass bedding is $200, and flush cups are $50, for a total of $725 + $210 for a CDI DBM.

This rifle will have a MTU barrel if that may be a factor, and I might mot go for the DBM.

Russo's stocks I like because of the looks and cheaper option and it could be a bit heavier. which, I am wanting

The Manners because I belive that it *might* have a slight edge in durability (I am scared that the laminate will be dented a bit more or that some of the wood might could get chipped off).

And yes, I have thought about a McMillian, but I would prefer a thumbhole stock and they do not make one.

Either stock will have a forward mounting Badger nightvision mount, two flush clups mounted on the left side, and will have a stock pack on the buttstock.

Thanks,
