And now we have the ambidextrous cheek pieces with one on both sides like flippin' saddlebags! I think a nice BSA Meteor Standard stock from the early 70s, if it had a higher comb to deal with scopes and perhaps a slightly more exaggerated pistol grip, (more upright I mean) is a far more elegant design than most of the monstrous maladapted meretricious mountings the metalwork must marry with.
Ah, the subtle lines of a hw35 export stock
The fine handilng of a Tracker.
Hows about the modern hw99s? Low comb, very little cheek and the scope still lines up perfectly
To diverge slightly....ever shot a bsa improved model d or light pattern. The pistol grip is the most comfortable of any rilfe I have ever come across, the trigger finger utterly unstressed and perfectly in place
I think the modern stock designers could do with a look at some of the old girls for a few lesson
