Very nice contour of the muzzle brake to barrel! I Like the diameter of the brake. Almost aerodynamic in a way. Nice build. Are you going to leave it a 2 tone or coat it a solid color?

Looks great. I also have a stock like that that is new to me. I found that I have to open up the thumbhole more so I can get my hand more behind the grip It is very sensitive to how I grip it and to where the bullet hits. Love the brake you have.
