    Improves offhand shooting
    no different shooting off sticks
    a couple of seconds longer to set safety (only an issue if youre a safety off at second before the shot)
    no different bolt cycling as your hand has to leave the pistol grip on a normal stock.

    All in all they are generally more comfortable to use and are no different in practical terms (unless you're anal).

    The Boyd's is heavy and has a very short LOP. Good value for money if your half handy to change the pad and finish it.
