There has been a trend lately in the rifle industry to make rifles as light as possible. The gun companies aren't the ones to blame, its driven by consumer demand. So many guys are obsessed with shaving every ounce off a rifle (while ignoring the many many extra pounds off their waist!).
The Kimber stock is a product of this lighweight trend. Kimber's walnut stocked rifles are excellent, but the moment I picked up thier synthetic stocked rifle, it seemed to me like a toy gun it was so light and flimsy that it would break easily.
Not to mention that a lighter rifle does not help, and often hurts, accuracy. I don't care what anyone says, they simply can't shoot a 5 pound rifle as well as an 8 pound rifle.
Get yourself a Sako and you will be a happy man. The discontinued but great Sako 75s can be found for a good price on gunbroker.com or gunsamerica.com
