The stock on the plastic version was very different than my Browning, harder plastic if that makes sense. Also seemed like it may be slick in wet weather. Wood version was pretty but i'd destroy it in a heartbeat. $650 is a great deal.
I have gotten mine pretty wet on several hunts this year (splashing through the river to get cripples before they hit the current) and it doesn't get slick at all. It is weird how light it feels, yet the kick is not even noticeable in my opinion. I also used the butt of the gun to break ice the very first day I hunted with it.
