    Best part of my vanguard/howa was ditching that Axiom stock. I had a versa pod and I thought the bipod was unlocked but nope it how much the forearm flexed. I was some happy to find someone take off Houge.

    It does flex, I'll keep an eye on that.

    Not as much as the axiom. I got a video some wheres of the flex if I can try and dig it up, but I'm just turning my wrist and the amount of flex/deflection barrel end on a cold rifle is wow. Mind you still shoots sub MOA with the stock. But the amount of flex and will only get worst as the stock heats up. Almost like it needs a Alum shank running across.

    But that's my observation of my Vanguard Varmint running the same stock. I thought the bipod was doing to tilt/pan but it was the stock.
