Premier™ Thumbhole Style
This handsome thumbhole design lines your hands, arms and torso with the barrel so you can shoot more accurately and with reduced 'jittering'. The Monte Carlo cheek piece results in straight-line recoil for improved scope alignment and less muzzle jump. The thumbhole has a noticable palm swell for a more comfortable gripping surface. Grip is canted slightly for better trigger control. Includes Pachmayr® Decelerator® recoil pad and Uncle Mikes'® sling swivel studs. Sporter barrels only - note the Ruger is for older tang safety rifles, not Mark IIs. We do not carry inventory of these stocks on hand, always a special order (see Stocky's Take below.)

Stocky's take: This is the lightest thumbhole stock on the market, averaging a tad over 2 lbs. If you have a 700 long action, you owe it to yourself to check out the H-S Precision Pro-Series 2000 Sporter Thumbhole Stocks - Remington 700 BDL Long Action also, we carry those in stock normally. The straight scoop: In our experience these stocks seem to vary in fit more than Medalists and are kind of rough in the inletting, therefore you must be prepared to make the appropriate adjustments when ordering, but they do have some real advantages so are worth the effort. Sometimes this requires epoxy bedding for best results. Most retailers should not carry them for this reason, we have elected to continue to offer them on a special order basis because our customer base is more gun-savvy and includes many professionals - we do not want to make some suffer because of those that don't want to make the necessary accommodation to mount them correctly. Bell & Carlson - Premier Thumbhole(TM) line of stocks are generally pretty clean on the exterior, but the internal inletted areas (barrel channel, magazine well, bottom metal, etc.) are often somewhat rough and usually need some minor work for best overall results. Please plan on doing this, it is considered normal and we do not accept returns for this reason.
These stocks tend to arrive a little 'rough around the edges', please do not order one if you are not prepared to make the appropriate adjustments and/or bedding as Premier Thumbholes are not returnable.
