Thumbhole Stocks

I have always had a love for thumbhole stocks and found a Fajen thumbhole varmint at a gunshow a few weeks back really cheap. I assume part of the reason it was cheap is because they are out of business again. Either way, it looks great and feels great.

I know that McMillan stocks are awesome, I have one and another one on the way, but I never hear anyone mention thumbholes. Is there a reason for this.

Take care,

CC

    I have two of Bruce Baers laminated thumbholes and love them. He has about 25 stock patterns and any combo of laminated colors.

    CM,

    Nice stick. I'm not familiar with Bruce. Does he have a website?

    Thanks,

    I got the stock from Bruce Baer #717-349-4077. If you have a good brake and some weight it should not be to bad Bruce makes laminated wood stocks that should work.
