The thumbhole stock originates from shooting sports but also shows off its advantages in stalking, high stand and driven hunting. The HELIX Sportster becomes even more dynamic with this stock optimisation: the visual optimisation symbolises its field of use, situated somewhere between hunting and sporting use. The thumbhole stock of the Sportster optimises ergonomics when firing and allows for quick follow-up shots. Merkel sells this thumbhole stock in wood-classes 2, 4 and 5. It was optimised especially for the truly linear action of the Helix system.
