    Looking to buy one of those. Not crazy about the folding stock but I want the short barrel.
    I'd like to hear some opinions on this rifle (from someone who has one )

    I have one, ditched the folder;) Shoots very good, great factory trigger, shoots Fed GGM ammo into an inch at 100yrds, puts its favorite handload into .5"

    What about this one;

    http://www.savagearms.com/10pc.htm

    The specs say 20", and the overall length spec is the same as the folder. Granted, the picture doesn't look like 20".

    I like the Choate, just not sure about the folding option. 20 inch barrel is what I want . How bad is the folding stock ?

    The folder shot the same as my fixed stock, so its pretty good accuracy wise. It did have a tiny bit of play with it open, and you would need a duffle bag to carry it in, if its closed, since its so thick. For Law Enforcment, it would be ideal;)

    is the play noticeable while aiming, or just when you open and actually make it wiggle ?

    Never felt any while aiming. I added a washer in the lock mechanism to add spring tension, and it tighten it a bit. Its a good stock, but I just didn't need a folder. The camo 10FP has the accustock, and should work well, if you like camo:)

    I actually like the pistol grip , Choate or thumbhole and 20 inch barrel. The folder and the camo one are the only ones with 20 inch.
    I have a Weather Warrior in 223 and I really don't like the shape of the stock. My face is too low and I can't rest my cheek on the stock while bench shooting. Not that there is anything wrong with it, just not made for me.
