Manners Composite Stock for Savage

A while back I picked up a Savage Model 12LRP in 6.5 Creedmoor.  The rifle came from the factory with detachable bottom metal, an HS Precision Stock, and for a mostly inexpensive rifle is well equipped.  But right away I found issues I did not like with the factory configuration.  The barrel on this rifle is a fluted bull barrel that is 26″ long, so getting into and out of a vehicle is cumbersome.  Also, the HS Precision stock had a low comb and was in fact chipped near the bottom of the stock.  Both easily fixed and minor, but I did not like it much.  I had received an extended magazine release and 10 round mags from Dark Eagle Customs which worked very well, but I was not satisfied with the rifle to this point.  I decided to take the rifle to the next level and contacted Manners Composite Stocks.


Ruger Precision Rifle vs Savage 12LRP head to head which is better and why

With the Precision Rifle Series gaining wild popularity, people are looking at getting into the sport but are unsure if they want to drop $4,000 on a rifle and $2,000 on an optic just to see if they like it.  Others are unable to spend that much but still want to play the game.  Also, new to the sport shooters may not use hand loaded ammunition which severely limits what’s available for use in this sport.  There are 2 inexpensive rifles that are ready right out of the box to start shooting PRS style matches.
