    I'm curious, does anyone know the origin of the Monte Carlo stock?
    Why is called Monte Carlo?
    How old is this design?
    Where does it originally come from?

    The Monte Carlo stock is a design to improve stock
    fit and recoil abuse. This stock first showed up
    beyond its local area where invented at the Monte
    Carlo pigeon shoots. That is why it is called a
    Monte Carlo stock. It is an improvement in stock
    design. Before this stock design, all stocks had
    a comb that slanted upward from the heel of the stock
    to the front of the comb.

    They first started showing up around the 1890s.
