Here is an early Shamal (no. 13) fitted into the target pattern stock:
Here is a TM100:
The Shamal target stock design was carried over to be used on the 100 Series guns as the TM variant.
The 100 Series comprised: SM100 - basic beech sporter stock version, XM100 - walnut sporter, TM100 - target stock version and NJR 100 - full FT stocked version.
Regarding the Olympic trigger, this came out with the 100 Series, but a fair few were retro-fitted to Shamal's. When you receive your rifle, take the stock off and photograph the trigger mechanism and add it to this thread, we can quickly tell you if it is the Olympic or standard unit.
