Firearm Forum Question: Different Style, Types, and Configurations for Rifle Stocks - What is Your Preference and Choice

Ask A Firearms Question:
I would like to see more on Rifle Stocks, types, options, etc. can you do a question and forum discussion on this?
Thank you Randy Jensen.

There are so many Rifle Stock configurations on the market today and have come so far from World War 2, I would like to know what other people like as a stock in design, type, material, and configuration.
Thank you Paul Simms.

Blog Administrator -
I have collected some different styles of Rifle Stock configurations that date back to WWII to present for both combat and hunting.
Personally I prefer the more traditional rifle stock for my hunting rifles and shotguns.
In combat weapons, such as assault rifles, I like the modern version because it's easy to add accessories and the weapon is lighter.
I have included pictures below of a variety of types of rifle stocks and configurations from WW2 to present, what's your favorite?

Traditional Rifle Stocks for Hunting and Military:

Modern Hunting or Sniper Rifle:

Collapsible and Folding Rifle Stocks:
