    Not mad about the laminate. Looks..... wrong on a shotgun.

    Just another way to keep costs down without having to buy in Turkish walnut

    Seems to have a massive following in the uk. But wouldn't be for me

    If to keep costs down they are doing a good marketing job when charging 500 more for it vs standard 525 :)

    it might look nice but from my experience laminate stocks crack and split more readily than a walnut stock with the correct grain structure.

    Anyone come across above since.

    Would not mind seeing one hands on.

    Suppose it’s different, but not for me my reservation would be how the Laminate will wear over time, it’s not like a traditional stock that will age naturally can be recheckered and re oiled.
