Thumbhole Stocks

A versatile stock that offers an unique look and improved stability when shooting some of the larger calibers.  Thumbhole stocks offer a level of comfort and do in fact reduce recoil when compared to a standard sporting stock.  By bringing the thumb into the stock this gives the shooter two points of recoil reduction, the hand / wrist / arm acts like a piston and the shoulder like a traditional hard stop of recoil.

When choosing a stock be sure to remember to inform your sales representative about your forearm specifications for this application.

Customizable

Shurley Brothers offers  various forearm styles, length of pull options, as well as our standard wide selection of hardwood for you to choose from, you can be confident in knowing that your stock will not only be functional but sharp looking as well.

Comfortable

Thumbhole stocks are a great option for building rifles for children or grand children.  These stocks are slightly heavier and the reduced recoil will aid in not frightening younger shooters with recoil.

Available

Whether you want to call and discuss your stock or pick one already built, we keep a standing supply of Thumbhole stocks in inventory and ready to be delivered to you.  We can also do the bedding, fit and finish to your barreled action if you desire.

Examples of Thumbhole Stocks

 

Versatility

As we mentioned before, the Thumbhole stocks are nothing if not versatile.  As you see in this photo, we have built one around a muzzleloader platform that the customer provided the barreled action for.  What a cool rifle!!!

Large Caliber Capable

Regardless of the caliber you desire to build, the this stock can handle it.  This clients build was chambered in the .338 Lapua Magnum caliber built on a #5 contour barrel.  This combo typically kicks like a mule but the Thumbhole stock made it comfortable to shoot.
