Straight Line Thumbhole. This style is a variation of the Dual Grip Thumbhole. Wood is left above the Dual Grip area and the stock becomes a streamlined thumbhole style in which the thumbhole grip is used exclusively.
We make stocks and stock components pistol grips, fore ends and rear stocks for several semi-automatic rifles. Often these stocks originate in cooperation with manufacturers, wholesalers and shooters who through years of experience exactly understand what is required. The ergonomic moulding of the grips gives the shooting hand a significantly better degree of control over the whole rifle.
A gunstock or often simply stockthe back portion of which also known as a shoulder stocka buttstock or simply a buttis a part of a long gun such as a rifle that provides structural supportto which the barrelled action and firing mechanism are attached. The stock also provides a means for the shooter to firmly brace the gun and easily aim with stability by being held against the user's shoulder when shooting the gun, and helps to counter muzzle rise by transmitting recoil straight into the shooter's body. The tiller of a crossbow is functionally the equivalent of the stock on a gun.

Remember Me. The FT's design is a synthesis of design elements requested by you, the customer, for a thumbhole design. With a large rollover cheek piece for scope usage and straight comb design to minimize cheek slap when shooting, the hand conforming thumbhole allows for increased accuracy while distributing the recoil among the palm and shoulder thus minimizing muzzle jump and felt recoil.
