Sarco has a metric US made thumbhole stock available. What is the difference between inch/metric in regards to the buttstock? Anyone used this stock? anygood?

The buttstocks differ in the forward edge that mates to the lower receiver. In addition the grips are very different in shape, function, and attachment. As the grip is part of a thumbhole stock this makes a big difference. In short, the metric thumbhole ain't gonna fit on the Inch lower. I have one of the Dragunov style thumbholes on a Century sporter and it feels pretty good. I believe DSA sold them and Bell&Carlson made them.

They're also quite ugly in the eye's of this beholder http://www.fnfal.com/forums/wink.gif and you can find them for about $5. They're cheap because the 10 parts/7 parts rule made it easy to get a foreign made, original, stock.
I don't know if there is a 'window' in which certain imported FALs were required to have this stock for compliance. Can the legal RKIs and smiths please comment on this.
