I feel ya Kirk! I'm going thru the same thing LOL!!!! in stead of a new rifle I decided to get a new barrel from Chambers, I just couldn't justify $750 for a new HW80LR from AOA, I been wanting 1 of those rifles since they came out! I need another AG like I need a hole in the head!!! So I decided to take 1 of my .20cal R1's and make it a .22cal, I purchased a 310mm threaded barrel from Chambers and a Can from Wolf 1/2'' UNF, yes long term effects LOL!!! :P
I just want to get a newer version of the HW30S stock, but don't think they're worth $100.

Not to add more fuel ⛽️ to the fire 🔥 but Iím really liking this new stock.  It has a great feel, looks good (to some) and  the grips panels have a lot of grip to them.  I never really felt that the grip panels on ANY of the HW models was anything more than just for looks.  These on the new 30 are noticeable and nice in the hand. 

One thing I noticed about the new stock compared to the older smooth ones or even the deluxe with the shorty forend is that it has a hollow sound to it when the gun is fired.  Iím thinking itís because of the way the wood is thinned out and slopes into the receiver tube on the top of the forend.  Itís certainly NOT an issue that detracts from it but it is/was noticeable to me.  I like the cutout on the bottom of the butt end, some donít.

Out of the 3 different style HW30S stocks I have I think the deluxe stock feels best in the hands (more squared forend compared to the rounder of the others).  Second would be the new style stock for feel but first in looks.  3rd is the older smooth style.  These are just my opinions/observations but there you have it....  words from an expert!  You get what you pay for. 🤣👊🏼

I didnít like the shorty front end either.  The deluxe stock was sent to my by mistake.  I had requested the new style stock and the deluxe showed up.  Just to save the hassle I kept the deluxe stock with shorty forend.  After about a week I actually started to like the shorty forend look but what really got me was the feel.  Itís feels so much better in the hand than the other two.  Not saying the others are dogs but you get what Iím saying being a HW guy yourself.

You will have to make the drive down south and we can wreck havoc on some targets with out air rifles and you can see what you think about handling the different style stocks.  Iím not trying to sell you on the deluxe, just giving my observations from what I have.  I wonder if the R7 stocks feel like the deluxe stocks???? 

PM inbound for ya!

Well I was hoping to report my own success with an order for my new rifle from Krale, but mine's been held up in Kentucky at US Customs for a week!  I've contacted both UPS and Krale, and they have responded that Customs wants a Tax ID number.  WTH, anybody else get this?  I'm an individual, not a company, and my HW is for my own plinking enjoyment....   >:(

I believe that if your order is over $800, import duty may be requested.  Unless it is a huge order, customs realizes that the paperwork is not justified.
