I love my 700's but man is this ugly.  I have yet to get the Magpul stock thing and never thought I would see it on a 700.   I am also rather confused at the choice of calibers they off it in.   I am thinking they had a lot of .260 and .308 actions around and needed to do something with them.

I guess to fair I should shut up till I shot one.   The stock may offer so control values, besides I am not the most handsome man but I perform so maybe this rifle will.

Not just you

The Hunter stock is best categorised as "Fugly" - will never have one on my 700 = and even more so for their 870 stocks!!
Hate seeing them on guns. Agree that they may impart some ergonomic advantages, but I'll stick with traditional stocks.

One MINOR good point of the Magpul stock is that the after-market mag conversion unit for it can be made to fit HS Precision & other normal 700 stocks.
About $60 or so, and that's with a 5-rd magazine included in the price.
My 6.8 LTR is long due a mag. conversion & this unit is top of the candidate list at present.

Instead of adding this range of stoick to the standard line-up, Big Green should drop their Tupperware SPS stock in favour of something that doesn't bend every time the wind changes direction.

Not my taste either. But how does it shoot I wonder.
And the .260 Remington is a very neato cartridge.

Butt ugly.  Sometimes polymer just isn't the answer!

Ugly is in the eyes of the beholder<G>!  Let's all remember when things like the Sig 220 and the Glock were roundly condemned because of the fact they were so ugly!
