Appreciate the answers. But for the cost of that stock? I'll save another hundred and change and get an Aimpoint RDS. I like my stock, but that one looks cool. But, looks cool doesn't matter when throwing rounds down the hill, does it?

If I remember, when I purchased mine it was somewhere around $260. Very solid/comfortable.

I actually bought this one brand new for about $100 less. There is this man where I'm from who has a shop basically in his garage!! Completely legal might I add. Cost me $180. He only marks his stuff up 10% of cost. I def lucked out. I love the stock, just need a barrel to test it. Lol

Be careful. Magpul is one of the most cloned manufacturer in airsoft. The also license their products for reproduction for airsoft. The **** comes from China and is passed of as the real thing. I have looked into it and they are not the same as the real deal. The licensed product says PTS the cloned stuff is a malicious rip off.

I went ahead and did this.
So Amy at RRA responded with:

"The only difference in the 2 rifles is the barrels, the Varmint has a heavy bull barrel, which is a large diameter, and the Predator just has a heavy stainless .750 diameter barrel."

I'm guessing the presumption is Varmint = Prairie Dogs, and/or a lot of repetitive shooting like range work. The Predator, not so much.

Thanks for that. I figured it was just the barrels, I just needed to hear others POV on them to help me make my decision. Thanks again.

I've heard of this as well, not to worry though, I know him pretty well. I also picked the stock out of his magpul catalog. Just for ease of mind, this "PTS" is located where?
