Thumbhole Rifle 0001 by Shurley Brothers Customs
Chambered in the magnum caliber .338 Lapua, Thumbhole Rifle 0001 is ready for the biggest game animals in North America. Such a large caliber with such amazing ballistics needed a stock that was worthy of this chambering. Our thumbhole stock dresses this rifle in beautiful Black Walnut and a Wenge forearm tip. The action used by Thumbhole Rifle 0001 is the Stiller TAC 338 in right bolt, right port configuration with spiral fluted bolt. The barrel on this rifle is a Brux #5 contour, 1-10 twist, and has a threaded cap for shooters that might want to run a suppressor on their rifle.
For those who are new to thumbhole rifles and stocks you can find out more information on our thumbhole stock page which can be found HERE. In short, thumbhole stocks offer more control and recoil reduction compared to normal sporting stocks. This is partially due to the added weight of the stock but also due to the fact that you have two recoil points with a thumbhole stock, your hand / arm acting like a piston, and your shoulder itself. When firing larger caliber rounds, we here at Shurley Brothers, love using thumbhole stocks on nearly every one of them.
