Which stock type is this?

I've gone through some of the old stock threads and didn't see this one listed.

What type and where can I find one? I don't need it I just like the looks of it.

When I click on your link I see an StG58 with a Steyr StG58 stock.

I have a standard Imbel stock with the hump toward the rear. Does this have a similar cheek weld?

It looks like the portion of the stock doesn't have the same drop as mine. Is there a function or purpose for it being different?

Sorry if this was a dumb question. I see other STG 58s with all different types.

The StG 58 stock has a slightly higher stock comb than the standard Belgian Type D plastic "humpback" stock. I'm not aware of any functional difference between the two, but I could easily be in error.
