A few people have asked me what the thumb rest above the pistol grip is for on our new Viperskins.

This is called our "Fast Action Thumb Shelf". It is designed as a positive index point for your shooting hand thumb to rest on when you need to engage many targets quickly.

When using a pistol gripped bolt action rifle, wrapping your thumb around the pistol grip, underneath the rear stock takes time to get in and out of position. I noticed the in timed stages of competition, the fastest shooters always kept their thumb outside of the thumbhole on the AICS stock but the problem was there was no index point for muscle memory to form on the smooth corner of the original AICS skins.

Our solution was to scallop an indentation on the stock so the shooter can find the exact position every time they need to shoot for speed. Some shooters may even shoot like this all the time, it's very comfortable... like a traditional stock.
