    I wonder why the LOP is so long. IIRC it's 14 1/4" but the women's model is 13 7/8".

    It's a standard LOP on a classic British stalking rifle. I got schooled on this myself when I had Ralf Martini build a rifle for me -- his starting point default is a LOP of 14-3/8" I believe. I was skeptical at first, but there was no denying how well that length fit me when I shouldered some different rifles in his shop. Sight acquisition in a standing snap-shooting position, particularly with irons, is noticeably faster when you're not pulling the stock back 1 to 1-1/2" back into your shoulder before you can do anything else. That said, a LOP of this length is also a fair-weather or tropical-weather length. Put on a wool underlayer, a hoodie, and a thick down filled jacket (welcome to November deer hunting in Alberta), and things do indeed seem overly long. But hey, the British know better than to hunt in -25 degree weather

    I'm 6' and would hesitate at much over 13.5" for scope use.

    They are very nice rifles. I'd love to have one in 275 Rigby.
