LOL, I've never even heard of that before today. I'd be wary of a $300 plastic stock that uses proprietary magazines. What's your goal for your rifle?

Why? You can get a B&C, which is a decent stock, for less than that. Of course, you would have to have it inletted for DBM, but I would forgo a detachable mag LONG before I went something, anything, from ATI.

Thyey actually use m1a/m14 mags based on what i found in a quick google search but it does come with one from the factory.

I've got a 700sps varmint and I'm just looking at my options now for a stock, came across this and it seemed to have a lot of features for the money. Thi swill primarily be a bench/load testing gun with maybe an occasional hunt.

A takeoff HS stock or a Bell & Carlson of some sort would be less money and much higher quality.

Kinda what I figured, but thought I'd ask anyway.

tupperware stock. several months ago while at the range I talked briefly to a guy who had one on a mosin nagant(also got to handle it). my first impressions were it was wayy light, forearm flexed against the barrel pretty easily. the owner thought it was the best thing since sliced bread
