The ANSCHÜTZ thumbhole stock allows your thumb to remain fully relaxed and free as a result. The ergonomically designed straight comb with roll-over cheek piece ensures perfect positioning in every situation and type of position; a fact which is an important condition for precision shooting. The thumbhole stock is made out of oiled walnut and is equipped with a German fish-scale, which guarantees good gripping even in rain.
