Does anybody know a place with better pictures of the Bell & Carlson AR thumbhole stock? Preferably a place with pics of one on a rifle?

If you do buy one, don't get it from FGW. :)

Why would anyone want such a thing?

And what's wrong with Florida Gun Works?

FGW likes to collect money whether the item is in stock or not, sometimes the item is shipped, other times not.

You are correct.

1) DO not buy it from FGW. FGW has bad reputation in the industry.

2) Try MidwayUSA or Brownells. Guess you are going to fill the hole and make it none-pistol-grip configured.

I got mine from Brownells. I filled in the hole. It is easier to handle then the Monsterman grip and feels more natural to me.

Plus I can never be up a river without a paddle.

PARA- How did you fill the thumb hole? What materials? Time it takes to complete? Thanks.

First I sanded down all the lame bumpy stuff with we dry sandpaper and I scuff the thumbhole up good.

I drew the thumbhole onto a piece of 1/2" thick hard wood and cut a plug out with my jigsaw. It doesn't have to fit perfectly, just snug. This saves you from having to fill the entire hole with resin or epoxy and cut down on the total weight added.

I epoxied the wood plug into the stock with 30 minute epoxy.

Once the epoxy cured I laid some fiberglass cloth to cover the wood plug and overlap on the thumbhole maybe 1/8 of an inch and mixed up resin.

I used the resin to fill the hole flush nearly flush with the rest of the stock. Doing one side at a time while the stock was laying flat on my bench. Due to the contours of the stock it would be a ton of work to make it dead flush, but you can easily achieve "pretty close to flush".

Once the resin curred on both sides I resanded the stock and resin plug and painted it with Aluma-Hyde II in semi gloss black. Turned out great.

Because this stock has the original shape of a pistol grip I find it easier to control then the Monsterman (which I also own and like very much).

I could take some pictures of the final product if you want, but there are a couple threads on here with photos.

If you know the thread that has the pics that would be nice. Or if you can post a few that would work also. Thanks a lot for the info.
