That is personal preference. I've shot thumb hole stocks but never owned one. I found them comfortable to shoot and nice for free hand shooting. But the straight stocks just always seemed to fit me and I never saw the extra cost necessary. Maybe someday I will get one just to say I have one.
I own an Accura with a regular stock and for me its perfect. As said before it is a matter of preference and which model you are most comfortable with. Good luck shopping I am sure you will love that ML no matter which one you buy.
