Thing is though, many will swap the stock our first of all anyway. Though the Hogue is a decent stock. but really, its just a threaded barrel with a different colour hogue stock. is it worth the price increase?? Just playing devils advocate.
It is in the same stock, just a different color. The threaded barrel will appeal to those that end up doing that anyway, like me.
The big plus is the different twist. It will allow for heavier bullets (like 175+) that lots of people want to use at longer ranges but this is a secondary benefit. The real intent of the twist is really for those that shoot cans, as it will allow the shooter to push subsonic loads without worrying about bafflestrikes that happen with the slower twists with slower than standard loads.
The market will not be huge for this, but I know a lot of people that have wanted exactly these things.
They will probably replace the stock as soon as they get it, but that's part of the beauty of the SPS T: it is produced cheaply enough that it is no big deal to replace the stock with what the individual really wants.
