Can't blame you tho.

LOL, actually, I wish I knew where to get another. I would like to have a light euro 10/22 rifle to go along with the other two - sort of a light, medium, and heavy trio. You can see my normal SuperStock in the below photo of my current SuperStock/SuperSport Stable: I love the vintage walnut DSP stock that I restored, but another matching euro would be cool! It also shows just how sizable the new SuperStock with the McGowen barrel is - the other guns pictured all have 20" barrels. I love acronyms; less to write on targets From top to bottom:

ESH (EuroSport Heavy)
ESS (Euro SuperStock)
CSS (Classic SuperStock)
LVT (Light Varmint Target - I call it that despite the modified carbine stock)

ESS with McGowen barrel target pics

Finally got to shoot my ESS (Euro SuperStock) and see how the 22" heavy tapered McGowen barrel did. The upper left stuff was sighting in with SV, although you can note how after I got the scope set pretty well, most of those sighters are together, 8 shots or so right on the upper left part of the .5" bullseye. All other groups were shot left to right, top to bottom, 50 yard distance, intermittent spring breeze being annoying. You can almost see the groups widen and shrink as the wind rose and fell. Front rest rear bag. Forgot to take pics

First 4 groups with SV were pretty normal, but you can see that as soon as I switched to SK+ and hit some still air, the gun really came alive! First group with SK+ was about .38, and the second, am amazing-for-me .18 or so! Moving on to Eley target ammo produced similarly good results - at least for this shooter I definitely want to get out again soon, hopefully on a calmer day, as I need all the help I can get.

There are some good groups in there for sure. Looks like it is shooting good for you. SK+ seems the most consistent looking to me. Even though, the vertical on the SV looks pretty good too. With some calmer conditions and a little play with the torque on the takedown screw it might shrink the size down some more.

I am excited to try it again, especially if I can find a calm day

Looks like a fun day!

Better than chasing my tail to get my Explorer fixed but finally did.

The rifle shows real promise and the guys steering it is doing pretty well too!

Haha, thanks I know blaming the wind is a classic excuse, and I am the first to admit that I am not a master benchrest shooter by any means. Still, I posted the whole target so that you can see the potential of the rifle...there are some smaller groups in there that show what can be done when the breeze and nut behind the trigger are behaving correctly

Those are great looking stocks. I have never seen a Euro style 10/22 stock and I like how it came out. Classy!

I typically don't like the euro stock. When I owned a cz it was a varmint which came with an American style stock. You're rifle is the acception. Thanks for posting.
