I'm thinking of purchasing a Model 70 EW and have been trying read as much about them online as I can. They all seem to get good reviews, but quite a few people have complained about the stock being too thick in the grip and wrist area and a bit uncomfortable.
I've also heard some people say that the short action length seems to be a little bit thinner and therefore more comfortable compared to a medium/long action. I've also searched these forums and see quite a few own one.
I'm looking to get one in either .308 or .30-06. I'd likely go with the latter if the stock feels the same, or I'll go with the .308 if the stock is in fact a slimmer profile.
Can anyone here tell me about the EW stock profile and if they find it too thick and if it's true that the short action feels thinner?
Thanks for your help!
