The stock had a lot of drop and pitch, much more than the other guns. Though this helped gain an upright and comfortable head position, it also could cause recoil to push up into the cheekbone. The flat magazine offered a good place to put the off hand.
The Charter's bolt was not nearly as smooth or as pleasing as on the Winchester or the Savage, and chambering the .270 round was stubborn at times.
