Looks like that buttstock would crumple under 416 and 50 recoil..

At least they have an option for left handed cheek rest. Nice find.

Reminds me of an EDM single shot windrunner.

That's just about as flimsy-looking as holding the action in your bare hand would be.

Personally I don't think it's worth spending that kind of cash on something that's not proven to last. If you're just buying that kind of weapon for the experience of shooting that caliber, then you'd save yourself a LOT of money by just going to the range or to a match and asking someone if you could shoot theirs - most people would be happy to oblige.

If you're buying that caliber weapon to do some serious ELR shooting, then you need to do yourself a favor and spend the additional $2000 for a quality, proven, durable weapon design. Plenty of good smiths out there building custom ELR rifles for around $4000.

My $ 0.02.

I don't see any problem with the stock - it looks a lot like a Windrunner. The brake and weight of the rifle is the key to reducing the recoil. Personally though, I'm suspicious of "cheap" rifles, especially big bore ones. Like optics, you get what you pay for.
