Thumb hook. Used for better grip when shooting off bench rest bags.
....ding.....ding.....ding......we have a winner!!
You actually use your secondary hand palm down, sliding your four fingers to the far side of the stock, and your thumb to the near side, and the indent of the hook cradles in the web of your hand. Some shooters use this hand to steer the gun.
Target/Varmint stock - Bell and Carlson is pleased to announce that we have added a new target style stock for the Ruger 10/22 (.22LR). The stock is designed as a drop-in for the heavy barrel (.920 barrel). It is a full-size stock that has an extended grip and a fairly wide forend with dual front sling studs to allow for both bipod and sling attachment. This stock has the "thumb hook" to provide for additional stability when shooting off shooting bags or a rest and has a slightly tapered forend to allow for quick and easy elevation adjustments. This stock is ideal for varmint or target applications! The stock has no checkering and comes with a standard length of pull of 13 3/4 and is available in all the finishes that we currently offer, including our web and camouflage patterns. Stk # AJ32
