So...what do you all think if a stock like this was available for CZ 452's? I think it's pretty interesting. Kind of a semi-FS but with a Scnable forend and the hidden but integral magazine box. I think maybe putting it on the Trainer would be the Cat's Meow! Something to think about anyway....
I wonder what something like this would cost? I wonder what would it be worth?
It appeals to me much more than did the Wild Dog stocks.

I don't care for the compartment and I could do without the sharp area under the grip, it's just not me. I like the cheek piece and shape of the buttstock, which kind of reminds me of the teak stock on my Australian Enfield in 7.62x39mm.

Replace the wood butt with a rubber reciol pad like the Ultra Lux the wooden end will get all nicked up if its' a user, plus will be slippery if you try to stand your gun on anything but a rubber base. Take a little off the grip extension and add some lenght to the fore end to a mannlicher full stock with the schnable end , the compartment i can take or leave, .It will add expense thats not really needed. interesting though,--JMJ--

Not a bad looking stock as is, but in the True Spirit of Never Leaving Well Enough Alone ...little more Schnabel, classic shape for the rear...copy the old Winchester featherweight stock... not so much "hook" on the (what do they call that thing behind the trigger?) maybe a shadow line cheekpiece, but the mag. compartment is neat.

A couple more inches, and it would make a very nice full stock.

magazine compartment

The magazine compartment is interesting. But if the stock is actually made out of wood, some creativity will be required so that doesn't get banged up / loose under the stock like that. For example, what happens if the rifle is rested while the compartment is open, with the pressure on the door? I think it has potential if done right and adjustable.

Too many angles and visual confusion. The stock on the American is close to perfect. Classic.

Very interesting. I'd keep the wood at the butt as a spacer. Rubber recoil pad.
Put a grip cap of metal on. Insure a fail safe compartment closure. Wrap around checking on the grip and good forend checking. Keep the comb.
Make sure its got super good grain in a darker walnut
This one would be one classy field gun.

Overall, I like it. As "redjeepgirl" pointed out, the mag storage in the stock looks like an accident waiting to happen, IMO.

nice stock

I would buy one for a 452 in an instant. neat idea.

I would keep the wood buttplate but make it interchangeable for those who do not

I like the wood butt plate jeff

I'd buy a CZ , marlin or savage if they made the stocks to fit the mags flush. I just can't get over how cheap and cheezy those little metal lipped mags look sticking out the bottom of the stock. As for the rest of it, I agree with vincent , too much going on

I don't like the stock length. Reminds me of the UL in a FS stock which I really didn't care for. To each his own; I'm certainly no stock expert...

Don't like the length. Make up your mind and either make a regular stock or a Mannlicher style, one or the other.

Don't like the grip. The 60's are over.

Don't like the wood butt plate. Too slippery and will get worn.

Do like the schnabel. Don't like the tacked on piece of wood used to make it.

Don't care for the checkering. Put it where it needs to be, not for decoration.

A Different Point of View ... More Photos

Maybe more photos may help the decision making process.

Especially around the receiver, trigger guard and magazine well areas.

If form follows function ...
then, in the Izhmash mode of thinking ...
purpose projects shape.
