Mark, some people like plain or tactical stocks as they take the rough and tumble but I have no intention of knocking it around and to me it is worth the dosh. I sound like a tackle tart but I take pleasure in ownership of my kit, the same with my fishing gear and boat gear, the guns I own are treated in the same way. The adjustable laminate stock, to me is a thing of beauty and gives me pleasure in using it.
The daughter of the shooting ground owner that I shoot both clays and target shooting has the same as me which has camo tape, netting and other bits on to break down the shape of the gun but she uses blue tack to fasten the various bits on so simply removes them when competition shooting.
Is it worth the extra, yes, it just allows that extra 'FIT' you cannot get from the standard gun as well as improving the look and the feel is just better.
You have to decide Mark.
