I have the classic, but if I were buying another, I'd go for the Prairie Hunter. I am developing more of an appreciation of a good cheek weld when shooting. I like the looks of the classic better, but I would go for the raised comb.
I think Boyd's is offering a discount on checkering right now. Get the stock checkered in one of his different checkering options. I believe he offers four different checkering patterns to choose from.
Good Luck and Merry Christmas
