    The thumbhole stock: attractive, comfortable, and exceedingly pointable.

    I love thumbhole stocks, and most of my bolt guns sport them, and the ones that don't soon will. Join me in appreciating the thumbhole stock!


    Pictures and anecdotes below, you know how this works gentlemen.

    CZ 452 TH Varmint .17 HMR Nikon Monarch 5-20X40

    This was a gift from my wife this Christmas. I think I'll keep her (but after 35 years I might not have a choice:D).

    I have one other TH stock and a semi thumb hole.

    Like this...

    I built this one in 1972 as my first project. It is a DWM made M-98 from a Brazilian Cav-Carbine. A Douglas #5 barrel in 7x57mm, and the stock was a big wood blank from the old Herters catalog. It took me all winter and half the next summer to carve this thing down.
    Then another month to get the polishing just right and then more than a couple tries to get the hot bluing to look like it should.

    I always wanted one until I tried one out. I have muscular hands with short fingers so the fit just was not there. Besides, I shoot both right and left handed....chris3
