    Quick question - I plan to bed my 5R barrel and action into the Manners T4A stock. I didn't want to go to the additional expense of cerokoting the metal at this time but it occurred to me that perhaps it would be better to have it done before bedding. Does it make any difference which is done first??

    Manners are great people to deal with.

    I went with a T-4A with the Manners Mini Chassis with DBM. The other thing to consider is the adjustable length of pull. I found that the stock LOP was too short for me. Manners will retrofit the adjustable LOP for the same price as ordering it on the stock. But you to have to pay two way shipping.

    No bedding, no pillars to install.

    And the rifle worked well out to 1200 yards.

    But one thing, if you are going to rebarrel your Sendero, why would you want to get a 5R?

    Something about the Mini-Chassis that doesn't appeal to me - or maybe I'm just a traditionalist (actually, no "maybe"). Plus I've read suggestions that these also should be bedded for optimal accuracy. At any rate I've worked out an arrangement with a smith in KC to get the stock from Manners and do the drilling and bedding so no pressure on me to figure this out.

    I believe at the time this thread was active, I was thinking of the future - I have no intention of re-barreling the 5R particularly since it groups well under 0.5 MOA with the "stock" stock in the hands of a Newbie rifle shooter!

    I decided not to go with the adjustable length of pull since I have the capability to change recoil pads/spacers myself to make any minor changes in LOP. And since I'm setting the gun up for one shooter, once I get the correct LOP, I'll be good to go.

    Can't wait to get the T4A - 18 of the estimated 16-20 weeks have passed and I will be on the phone to Manners tomorrow to get an update.

    Thanks for your comments,
