I have an FWB 300S universal with the high sight line.  Beautiful rifle and great shooter at 10m.  But be advised, it's heavy.  I have several CMP 853s with both Montecarlo and sporter stocks and they shoot almost as well as the FWB at 10m, and they're a whole lot lighter for extended shooting sessions.  In the FWB's favor is cocking effort with the side lever is much easier than with the 853, and it doesn't take you as far out of shooting position.  Definitely upgrade to 753 sights - it's worth the money.

Which stock style do you like better and why?  Thanks

I prefer the monte carlo stock over the sportster stock. 
- The position of the trigger hand is more upright, allowing me to tuck my elbow in close to my side.  The sporster stock has my elbow floating out to the right of the rifle.
- My trigger finger pulls back toward my shoulder, vs upward with the sportster stock.

To take it 1 step further, I replaced the sporster stock of my 853 with the composite/plastic montecarlo stock of a 953.  The reason is weight.  The plastic montecarlo stock is significantly heavier than the wood stock, making the rifle sit better, and is easier to hold steady.

Thank you, I was leaning that way for the same reason, but a conformation helps tremendously.

The only thing is a composite/plastic 953 stock does not look anywhere near as nice as a nicely stained and finished wood stock.  But I guess you can paint it  :)

I had difficulty with the slippery buttstock of the Avanti 853.

To remedy this I got this rubber slip buttpad for under $12, medium size.  Much easier now to keep the gun on my shoulder.

Definitely the Montecarlo for 10m precision shooting.  For plinking I prefer the sporter with a cheap Tasco scope instead of the diopter sights.

I have the order form printed off to buy an 853, just have not sent it off yet.  Monte Carlo stock is what I'll be ordering.
