The bend at the wrist is straighter on the photo you found. Mine seems to have a more gradual curve to it.

If your referring to the arch on top of the butt as "a more gradual curve", that curve is called a "Roman Nose".

Buck, I am referring to the transition from the top of the stock just behind the lock to the buttstock as it passes through the narrow wrist.
