Introduced in 2014, the Manners Composite Stock's Elite Hunter Series was developed to be as light as possible but still maintain the ruggedness, stability, accuracy and ergonomics of the rest of the Manners lineup. To accomplish this, Tom Manners went back to the drawing board. In the past, the composite industry was driven by aerospace technology, but in recent years, there have been quite a few advancements in the wind energy market. Off-shore carbon fiber wind turbine blades are now being made longer than 110 meters in length. Manners took some of these advancements in materials and ideas and developed a new process for this series from lay-up to fill. To start, all the Elite Hunter stocks had to have a 100% carbon fiber shell. The second step was to develop a super light fill that would still hold up to any magnum caliber that you could throw at it.
This particular stock, the Manners EH1, was designed for the long-range hunter. With the MCS-M5 Mini-Chassis, this stock weighs in around 1.75 pounds. The forend is 1.75” wide at the tip and rounded to a beaver tail that is flat and wide enough to accept a #8 barrel which is about 1.125″ diameter at the tip of the stock. The grip on the stock is more of a vertical tactical style, that is longer than standard with a small palm swell and overall smaller grip than say a MCS-T4 stock.
