Been looking at these rifles. Never laid my little paws on one yet so I'm wondering a couple things. When they say adjustable muzzle brake, what does that really mean? Never have had one and really don't think i have a need for it so can I take it off? Just cover up the threads right?

And can you get an aftermarket stock for the accustock models?

I could and will ask at the LGS. But I'm sure they've never had one so the info is a little sketchy. Thanks.

I'm not sure why you would want to get rid of the accustock, but if I didn't like that one I would buy a model with the stock I liked. For example if you don't like the adjustable comb on the long range hunter then get the predator hunter instead. Or the Model 12 long range precision, it comes with the HS Precision stock and target accutrigger.

I've seen a lot of posts about the AccuStock being hard to tune correctly. You have to put the bolts in it just right or it puts the barrel in a bind along with the action. That's what I've read on boards like this one. But that's been a while back now. Could be that problem is gone away. HS Precision has problems of it's own but they deal more with the politics of the company than the stock. The stock is pretty good though. It's not a McMillan but it's better than a Bell And Carlson IMO.
