In my youth I liked straight wrists way more than pistol grips, felt 'right' back then and I guess some shotgunners like 'em too.
Somewhere along the line that changed, maybe I aint as limber as I once was, but the less I have to contort my body parts to get behind a gun the better it feels. I vote for keep the pg.
But, it aint like the oem pallet-wood carbine stock is worth much; mod one if ya feel like it. I know I have seen some online done up in the style you mention and thought they looked good too.

Ricochet did several like that and others followed. Kind of a fad here for awhile.

I did it to one of my beater carbine stocks back when I was experimenting with cross pinning an action




and I even bent up a different mag release lever for it, to give it more of an old timey feel..inspired by my Ruger #3


the grip chop works good on DSP's as well

As kind of a traditionalist I almost went that way, too. Then I got revved on the LTR/Appleseed 'sorta M-1 Carbine' style.
But a 22" barrel, traditional buckhorn sight, straight wrist c/w a tang sight and a long underlever would be pretty sweet

Do it! I took a well used old walnut carbine stock and did the straight grip conversion to it. It turned out awesome.

This is my second straight grip conversion. I installed a rear sling swivel and barrel band swivel up front to facilitate a leather sling. What I did to the other rifle, and plan to do with this one, is to drill a hole into each side of the barrel band and install knife thread inserts in the stock itself. This way you can decide whether or not to fully float the front band based on how your particular gun shoots, or leave the band contacting the barrel but tighten it up to a degree where you still have full free movement of the front band swivel, while allowing the use of the sling without effecting your point of impact.

All in all, it is a fun project and gives you something different. It is nice to actually make something you can't just go out and buy.
