I'm not a structural engineer or anything, but I was enlisted in the Navy as a nuc, I've taken some engineering courses, and I build stuff for fun, as a hobby. From looking over the rifle, it looks like the bow is there for more than just looks."The bow adds rigidity, you may not notice a difference, but as time passes it will cause more stress on the part of the stock behind the receiver."
BS! :cantlook: :cantlook:
