I know you guys laugh at me, but the only complaint I got so far on the impact is its size. It's made for small people.

You are aware that the buttstock is adjustable?

Goex, even with the spacer installed the LOP of those Impacts are pretty short. Would be excellent for someone in late winter with a ton of clothing on. But it seems that rifle was designed for smaller folks such as youth and women.

A couple years ago I shouldered one in Bass Pro Shop. It fit me well then and I'm 6'1" - 34" long-sleeve shirt arm length.

I wonder if the ML length specs changed since?

One only needs to put the bullet in the barrel a tad, and see how it goes. This particular bullet did very very well, and the test was an unequivocal success!

If a 13.5" LOP (that's what it is with the spacer installed) "fit you perfectly" then your idea of "perfectly" and mine would be highly different Goex. Or maybe you have a really short neck and that does make a difference. But the fact remains, it is a shorter LOP and designed for smaller people.

TC like short LOP's. Check out Renegade, Impact, and Triumph Bone Collector.

At least CVA gives you a man size LOP.

With all these guns to test, I'm finally taking advantage of automation.
