Default 995 vs. 995TS

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if there is any difference between the classic 995 and the new 995TS? Like are the stocks made of the same thing or are is the new one sturdier, or has anything been changed internally, or does the new 995TS offer anything function wise that the classic 995 did not? I am asking because i dont know if i should just get the classic and up grade the stock or go out and get the new model.

There have been a few posts on this subject and from what I've read (never handled the TS) there are only two real differences.

1) automatic bolt hold open on last shot
2) new stock appearance/stock feels sturdier

mynine, from the prosepective of a person who owns a 995 with ATI stock & lots of mods and also a TS for 3 months, buy the TS it's a much improved weapon. You'll have the last round lock open feature, more rails to mount accessories, better more rigid stock & spring dampened butt pad. Feels much better shooting than the old 995 stock & in my opinion is an improvement over the ATI.

Sorry Guys,

But you forgot one other thing. The new factory trigger. Nice wide recessed curved area where your trigger finger sits. That change along is reason to get the TS. IMHO

My camera is still out on loan so no trigger pics available.

FYI - My 995TS-FG from MKS Supply was born on October 19, 2009 with all the latest updates.

Do all the TS’s have the new trigger?

Just buy a bushman trigger if that is a huge issue.

I looked at the TS before I bought mine and I just prefer the look of the older model over the TS. I am also cheap and could pick up an old model for $125. I sent it in to be looked over and it's pretty much a new rifle after they were done replacing everything.

Well said. Go with the 995TS, and have a ball. My babies are below:
