    Is this rifle longer than the Beech stock 557 ranger? or is it an optical presentation because of the muzzle break?
    How much does this one weigh?
    Is that a new metal magazine or the same regular 557 ranger magazine with the polymer base etc..?
    Really? I just got a 527 with the synthetic stock and I thought it was quite poor in feel, although I would still chose the same stock for this gun given that I already have a wood stocked 527.

    Maybe its personal preference, the synthetic 527 is the first non wood long rifle stock that I ever actually liked the feel of. does yours have the slight bow in the front of the stock as well? still has the barrel full free floating due to a wide tolerance but a little curve non-the less. I planned to use the synthetic one as a knock around gun on the side x side and deer drive rifle.

    Cool. It would be good to post a photo of that perspective.

    Is that a 0 MOA rail or a Canted Rail?

    Well if I compare it against some other synthetic stocks I have owned, it is not at the bottom. I also planned to use mine as a knock around gun which is why I chose it over the wood stock. No bow/curve in my stock that I can notice.

    I just bought one in 308 - so far it only shoots OK (1.25 inch at 100yd) - hopefully working on my reloads will help - currently my old Ruger 77V in 308 shoots much better (.5 inch) and in-spite of the Ruger having a heavy barrel, the Ruger weighs a full pound less. This thing is a tank - with a scope and full magazine it weighs a tad over 11 pounds. It also weighs more than my heavy barrel Tikka. Not sure where all the weight comes from. The stock material must be real dense as the barrel is standard. The weight and the muzzle break makes it an absolute joy to shoot.However I doubt if i will be carrying it very far in the woods for deer hunting
