Response to Initial thoughts, a question on custom stocks, and spring gun tuning

The American Classic stock shape on the 60's era Ruger M77 is my favorite stock shape, though I prefer a cheekpiece to add additional 'interest' as they call it in art. The HW95 is one of the most popular spring gun actions out there. I've carved several stocks for HW95 (R9).

Here's a picture of the M77 stock:

I've just finished a Classic for HW30 without the cheekpiece. This picture is with the first coat of oil, I haven't taken pictures of it in it's finished state yet, and below that are a couple of stocks I made for HW95 that do have the cheekpiece:
