Mossberg’s Thumbhole Stock and Tipdown Forend Rifles

Mossberg’s Thumbhole Stock and Tipdown Forend Rifles

North Haven, CT – Mossberg International puts the “Fun” back in “Functional” with their newly released Thumbhole Stock and Tipdown Series of rimfire rifles.

Expanding its popular line of rimfire rifles, the Thumbhole/Tipdown stock is sure to be a “must have” for the aspiring shooter. Offered in .22 LR autoloading (702 Plinkster), .22 LR bolt-action (802 Plinkster) and .17 HMR (817) models, the Thumbhole/Tipdown rimfire rifle is the perfect go anywhere kind of gun, with the built-in features normally found on rifles that cost far more. The stock provides a vertical, pistol like grip for both hands, which anatomically and ergonomically offers the most natural positions for the human hand to assume when holding a rifle to the shoulder. This results in a more natural positioning of the hands and a comfort level more conducive to accurate shooting, be it from the prone, kneeling, sitting or off-hand positions. Whether your idea of fun is serious marksmanship practice, chasing small game or just plinking around, the Plinkster Thumbhole/Tipdown model fits the bill.

    I have a 702 Plinkster, and would love to get a thumbhole stock for it, but cannot find one anywhere. Any ideas as to where to get one?
