    Still looks like a rifle, only because of the scope though.
    I don't like it at all! But it may be because of my bad taste..

    Hmm, Paul Wilson stocks - you can either love them or loathe them. Not my favourite design, but fairly popular. None of the ones I have tried so far fit me so not a design I would go for.

    Lewis, they are all AR5's and I have heard too many people experiencing problems with them to say they are great , they are good but not when the nearest person to service it is 6000 miles away. Ripley triggers aren't as good as they could be for the money either.

    Saying that however if I could get an AR4 I would, IMO they are better built.

    Still I am happy with the GC2 action that I bought on Sunday.

    How much do the Ripleys go for these days?

    Not sure exactly, but new I would guess around ?800 for an action only.

    Generally ?550 - ?800 s/h with stock depending on spec.

    I still don't like 'em. Apparently the AR5's suffer from reg problems?

    I don't like the look of the stock looks like you are carring a tree or a baseball bat. I wouldn't spend that kind of money on something that looks that BAD.

    Urabus that stock must be a treat to shoot with if its custom fit for the shooter.I think I would like it more if the hook was not fitted. :smash

    As far as the last action goes .Well I was looking into having something like that done.Think you guys would rip me less off if I shot a hole in my foot.Does not mean that I have given up on the concept. :dunno

    I once saw a Sc-Fi movie about a bunch of guys that went to Mars, one of them found a way into an acient habitat and discovered a weapon there, ( and decided to bump off the rest of the crew). I think the Ripley was manufactured by someone who saw the movie......

    Weird looking FT stocks are not a new thing, take a look at the following pictures that I re-discovered:

    Deadlinkskig_menu/_imagefiles/tds_gc2a.jpg[/img]

    Deadlinkskig_menu/_imagefiles/tds_gc2b.jpg[/img]

    This rifle belonged to Terry Doe, seen in the upper pic, former FT Champion and regular contributor to Airgun World. The action is the first of the GC2 Mk3's (note only two slots on the muzzle brake) fitted into a stock built by John Welham, formerly of a company called Airmasters, who were at the leading edge of FT stock innovation in the mid to late 1980's.

    This rifle and stock were built in 1990, the action alone costing ?700, the stock, well he never said the price but at a guess given the grade of walnut used I would estimate anywhere between ?750 and ?1000.

    Fine craftsmanship but not my cup of tea.

    Guido, I met Ray and Hans at the worlds in 2001 (white overalls and all) I don't recall their rifles though, would be interested to see them if you manage to find a picture.

    In respect of stocks this one on my GC2 is comfy without (IMO) being overly weird:

    PS: wait until I track down pictures of the Airmasters FTXS stock and the Fanson stock I used to have on a Daystate action back around '91!
