    My new Boyds Thumbhole stock arrived this week and I installed it last night. Thanks to IMASHRIMP for the inspiration!

    I can't believe how nicely the gun shoulders, even with the bipod on, and the raised cheeckpiece helps bring the sight picture into immediate focus. I am very pleased with the Boyds stock and would recommend it to anyone interested in upgrading their ATR.

    Thanks Mike.....I originally wanted it because I thought it would look sharp.....I didn't really know that it would handle so well.....kind of a bonus.

    You'll like it. I've had a Boyds stock on my 10/22 for years. I have nothing but good things to say about their product.

    Thanks All. I have not had an opportunity to shoot it with the new stock yet. I hope to get out with it this weekend and I will be sure to let you know.

    If it shoots as well as it feels when i shoulder it, I will be very happy.

    It was shooting apx 1.5 in groups at 100 yds before the bipod and now the new stock. It took a bit of doing as I changed the scope after sighting it in originally and I have been trying different ammo and such. Overall I feel the gun shoots quite well....especially for the very reasonable price.

    I almost bought an ATR LONNG AGO! I decided to spend my money on a Mossberg 500. They are very reasonably priced! I think mossberg needs to do some more advertising....

    I got to shoot my ATR with the new Boyds stock today and all I can say is that I am very pleased with my purchase. It is a ball to shoot and I got several comments on how it looks. I may be imagining things but accuracy may have even improved. I can't wait till hunting season!

    This is my last 5 shots at 75 yds

    That'll kill any deer in my neck of the woods! I don't think hunting rifles need to be sub-moa particularly.. Yes it would help but a bunch of friends went hunting with Mosin Nagants last year and they all got one! (I was left out because I don't own one) And we all sure know they aren't near MOA... let alone Sub-moa haha

    Itsricmo.....I believe the only thing keeping me from getting sub MOA results with my ATR are my optics , my shooting skills and style. With a better scope and a Lead-Sled I'll bet I could put 3 in the 10 ring no problem. But when I hunt I'll probably be shooting off-hand and all that stuff won't be helping me then.....I will probably even remove the bipod before heading to the woods. It's all good though, I am very happy with my Mossberg.

    Re: Dressed up my ATR

    Keep in thought where you are hunting at! I took my bi pod off (13 - 27) and I went hunting on the end of a field... My bipod would have come in handy that day with 2 bucks and a few doe stepping out past 200 yards. But if you are hunting in the woods like the other 99% of the time for me haha.. you won't need it :D

    My Mossberg 100 ATR .308 with Boyd's FT Thumbhole stock in Pepper Laminate. She has a 4-16 x 50mm scope with Mil-dot blue, green, red illuminated reticle and bipod. I haven't re-zeroed the scope yet. It willhave to wait until after the weather breaks.

    OK, OK, so I made a couple more modifications. I ordered a Picatinny rail from Mossberg, and after a few hiccups, they finally sent me one that fit. I then ordered a YHM Phantom 5/8 - 24 flash hider and had it installed. I changed out the rings to 1" as the other rings were causing hangups at times with the bolt. Well, anyway, here it is. It has graduated to a Night Train II.
