Just my opinion... A lot of folks think the GI fiberglass is lighter than GI wood, I believe it's because of the shape of the fiberglass stock. It has the slimmest profile of the GI stocks, smaller pistol grip, and I think that makes it feel lighter even if it isn't.
I like the slim profile (I have kind of small paws.) My Walter Mitty rifle lives in a nice GI fiberglass, good receiver fit and lockup, and it shoots well. I like the way it handles.
