    I have seen a BT 100 Thumnbhole Stock with one so i'd say yes. It looked odd to me. I use to have a BT 100 with a Thumbhole Stock. Looked cool but wasn't very shooter friendly. At least not for my small hands anyway.

    I have one and it fits my hands just fine but I need just a tad of cast off and cant' find a way to get it. Browning repair station and gunsmith (Jim Eyster) did not recommend cutting the comb - there just isn't much wood up front. The stock bolt runs up through the pistol grip.

    The stock bolt comes up thru the grip cap. It requires an adapter piece that usually comes with the stock. So to answer your question, no.

    If it was my own gun, I would risk it, but I've turned people down with these stocks because there's just not enough wood integrity up front.

    Biggest problem with this model is they never offered it for Lefties.

    Martinpicker--I had a hard time with the LOP from the pistol grip to the trigger. That was with the trigger adjusted as far back as possible. I don't know if the grip was too large or the distance from the grip to the trigger was too far. I don't have the largest hands in the World but i have heard the same complaint from alot of people. I would say if you have large hands especially long fingers, it may fit you much better.

    Had Tom Larkin do one for me. Came out nicely and never had any sort of problem with it.
