    It is paid in full, understandable, you won't miss it, it might be available on the next batch after summer.

    Which area are you looking at for width?

    It has an AICS pattern magazine well so any AICS magazine will do. Nothing planned at this time outside of the options available now.

    Yes, but they are rotational.

    Yes, the issue is the bolt handle which is why it folds to the left, it isn't reversible due to how it attaches/the bolt handle.

    It's a pretty decent pad, but we are not aware of any aftermarket options that will fit without modification.

    How come? Pads on my MDT stocks have been more than sufficient for my rifles (223 to 7RM).

    Looks to be only 1/2 inch thick...I'd prefer 1 inch on 300 magnums...but that's just my preference.

    The extra weight of your heavy chassis helps with recoil. Lightweight magnums aren't all that comfortable to shoot.

    I agree, though I think that a quality brake is way more effective at mitigating recoil than an extra quarter inch of rubber. My moose rifle (LSS-XL) in 7 rem is well under ten pounds loaded with an optic, and the ATRS cuts the recoil to less than my unbraked .308.

    That being said, I know not everyone loves a brake hunting. I hunt with ears so the noise really doesn't bother me. I think if you're looking to run a big boomer caliber (300 prc/WM, 8mm or bigger), a featherweight chassis probably isn't what you want anyway.

    At least, that's the opinion of one guy on the internet.
