By posher (is that even a word) I assume you mean shiny, as a hand made custom metal stock with hand crafted and unique thumb up grip is pretty posh.

 

You after something more like Graham's?

Personally as much as i can see the advantage of cut back wood work such as grahams . i am afraid i just love a full stock in really good walnut . you don't need bling when you have quality . love to see Jon do a full stock ??? HOLLY 

 

PS Talking of graham i notice he is at a level of late ( not a bad one )  . that next step is gonna take a deal of work to get into the winners enclosure . go to it graham .

I've been looking at stocks lately as I'm still only 90% comfortable with my FTP, a few mm adjustment here and there makes a big difference to fit and scores.  I personally love Berty's stock out of all guns I've seen on GP circuit not just 9015's - that for me is perfect looking but I'm just too new at this game to commit £1k on a bespoke stock when I don't even know yet if I've found my natural shooting position meaning you run the risk of having one made and it not being right.  It's for this reason I think part or fully adjustable stocks are good for a new shooter or as and experienced shooter as we get older and things ache more and with adjustable you can then adjust accordingly. 

 

I've had comments about my carbon / polished ally FTP being the nicest or most fugly thing ever seen.  But like an ugly child, it's my ugly child :thefinger: :lol2: :rofl2:

Horses for courses. Berties stock is lovely but would be no good for me. Where others have added and added, Jon made mine lighter. It suits me although I know not as blingy as some but I like it.

I'm a Brummie Holls therefore I have no concept of posh. I think Jon has delivered beyond my expectations with a very limited brief of what I actually wanted. The gun is better than I could have imagined. I do like a nice wooden stock but I was after the ultimate in adjustment and a thumb up grip that placed my thumb directly behind the trigger and not to the side of it. Jon hit this on the nail. The best description of the gun at the moment is that it looks stealth like, I really like that. Modern and purposeful.

I see you are suffering the great photobucket blackmail Nat.

 

If you want to post pictures on forums, you now either have to find an alternative site, or pay photopirates $400.

 

I deleted my account and I'm now using my dropbox account.

Photo bucket deleted my account some weeks ago without any warning but then I did have a lot of photos on there. Luckily they were only copies of ones I have on drives at home. When I contacted them they said it was a glitch but if I subscribed they could restore all my images.

I'm not into black mail so they can go and screw themselves basically.

It's become a dreadful web site. I had a lot of cycling / bike pictures there which I put on various forums.

 

First I noticed a marked slow down, then it became difficult to copy links, more recently the number of adverts have become ridiculous and then the e-mails started, upgrade to this and ad free for that, all asking for money of course. Then a few weeks ago a couple of cycling buddies said they had been blocked from 3rd part hosting and then I got the blackmail e-mail telling me to pay $399 or else, and then they blocked all my pictures.

 

Like you Colin, all my photos are copies, so I just deleted the lot and closed my account.

 

They are still sending me e-mails, and of course I cannot get back into my closed account, despite setting it to no e-mail notifications before I closed it, so I have set up a rule on my e-mail that any photobucket emails get resent... to photobucket. If I have to keep deleting the things, then so will they.

 

Dropbox are supposed to be changing their photos page, but at present while it is still working, I will use it, and find somewhere else when I need to.

 

I understand photopirates need to make money from the site, but there are better ways to go about it.

With you for once Holly, good job we all have our own tastes, otherwise we would all end up shooting the same rifle with the same stock and that would be a tad boring.

 

As much as I like some of the custom stocks I have tried I find the all on the heavy side for me, I like alutec stocks so that's the way I  have gone.

 

We all like to personalize our kit to some degree and I like seeing all the different approaches people have gone with their kit, all part of FT for me.

My photo buckets been giving grief since last year more so the last 5 months, cant see any piccies when click on them logged in or not.

Just inundated with adverts after adverts, dismiss them and landed with malware.

Last week had two emails within 2 days stating they are closing certain piccies of mine down. Second an email stating i am 3rd party hosting and want money. No good to me if i cant even see my own piccies.

Hate dropbox, and still carrying on with picturetrail held the last 15 years or more but cant do videos.

For all concerned last two polish R3 chrono readings from the last two MFTA Summer Leagues 762 and 758 when actually 781 to 783. Pointless. 2hrs earlier it read fine at that moment in time pot luck.

A fellow top 5 MFTA member went through 706, 708 then 786 which was wrote on his card not the 706. Equally can and will read that much fast kicking competitor off when perfectly legal.

If the organisors are legislating which they are, they do it right or not at all.

 

Right off on the real ale.

Just added two extra links to the Gemini as I wanted it more over my shoulder, they look good for being silver against the rest of the black anodised links but no doubt Jon will disagree and have them anodised whilst I'm away lol. I've also fitted a cosine indicator, not sure how much I will use it but I do like my gadgets.
