    What

    Would you think all four of these are trap stocks (parallel comb)?

    Your first one is a factory straight trap stock, which does not have a parallel comb.

    Your second one is a sporting stock, not a trap stock.

    Your third one is a Jack West stock, and has a parallel comb.

    Can't comment on the fourth one, but I suspect it is paralle.

    Bottom stock is also a monte carlo trap stock on a Browning BPS shotgun.

    The distinction between stocks has mostly disappeared. You have trap, skeet, and many sporting clays shooters shooting parallel straight or monte carlo stocks. So the categories are "target" stocks and "field" stocks.
