    Has anyone shot an 1100 with a thumbhole stock? Pros and/or cons about it. Does anyone know of where to get a thumbhole stock for an 1100 other than Boyd's their production run isn;t scheduled for a few more months? Thanks

    I've tried the factory 1187 thumbhole synthetic stocks, and a Wenig.<br>
    <br>
    I do not like the factory thumbhole whatsoever. I'd rather have a synthetic monte carlo. The hole was too small, and it felt uncomfortable.<br.
    <br>
    The Wenig was better. And this Wenig had its hole enlargened for a big hand. That's one big advantage of a wood thumbhole stock - you can remove more material (up to a point).<br>
    <br>
    If you can, try one out first, because the grip angle makes the stock feel quite a bit different. And I'm not sure I'd care to have a thumbhole stock for sporting clays. I felt to me like it allowed less movement (good for trap, but made the gun 'too stiff' for sporting clays).

    Wenig makes the nicest thumbhole stock that I've seen.
    Good Luck and God Bless, Bill Ivins
