That's going to be a case of beauty being in the eye of the beholder. I'm more interested in functionality, as in, if it functions well, it's got its own beauty.

I am wondering about the weight range. If it's too inexpensive, then, as suggested, you worry about the adjustments not being stable or there being wiggle in them. Still, it's an interesting concept.

Given what I have invested in my "runt's" competition shooting gear, I would think a stock like this could be a very good option for the youth market. Stocks for our Anschutz rifles cost quite a bit more.

I like the look of this one, too. I just had a Boyd's custom delivered and am very pleased with it. Comparing the price to close-out Raptors (of which I have one) is not really fair. Boyd's prices are very reasonable, imo.

Strange rear sling swivel placement

OK, I give up.

From the video, why would you put a sling swivel on the bolt or charging handle side of the butt. That is also the side with the windage turret. Sling it over your shoulder and you have a bolt handle or charging handle digging into your back.

I can see avoiding where your cheek rests, but on the bolt side?

Other than that, not bad, but it depends on price. At the NRA meetings in Louisville they has a Pro-varmint with adjustable cheekpiece in natural brown laminate. Very nice, but the adjustable riser upped the price significantly.

to me it seems like a better concept for a youth stock,,,so they can grow with it,,,,and use one rifle for multiple shooting efforts (hunting, target, etc),,,

Great concept for a beautifully-crafted stock, yet the adjustable butt stock that conforms to the user and is designed to grow with the young shooter would be in direct contravention to the utterly backwards and absurdly Draconian gun laws of my Socialistic State of New Jersey. But on the other hand, one can only imagine the tens if not hundreds of thousands of innocent lives that have been saved by continuing to maintain such useless and absurd limitations upon the constitutional rights of NJ citizens.

I hadn't thought about that - would an adjustable butt stock be illegal under laws like the (un)SAFE Act? Could things get any more surreal? I had a brief moment of concern about my Anschutz, but it doesn't have a removable mag (single shot rifle).

Sigh.

I have a question for the stock wood experts. I hope it's okay to ask here as I didn't think this was deserving of a new thread.

The stock below is for my 'built-from-parts' Daisy Model 499, aka "Worlds Most Accurate BB Gun". Can anyone say what type of wood it's made of?

Thanks in advance.

Looks like birch to me (I'm not an expert, but it still looks like birch to me).

Lots of stocks on high end match rifles that fit that description. This is a very functional stock, fyi, so is the Tacticool. The beauty of it is, you can pick what you want from a sporter to the target models.

Thanks. It won't turn any heads but it's a nicely made stock, especially for a BB gun. The LOP is over 14", so it fits an adult but it's definitely not too long.
