    I think 2 of the best closest to you are

    Allem Gun Craft----Zionsvill,Pa
    Phone # 215-679-9016-----Allem Guns are great----I'v dealt with John and Nancy for over 10 yrs---You won't be sorry---Deal with Nancy and Then John



    Joe Goldberg---------Just 20 mi south of Atlantic City

    Phone # 609-213-6187

    Joe is doing a fitted stock for me and it looks and feels great

    Joe is great at what he does--

    Another advantage to going to Joe is he's just 20 mi south of Atlantic City,N.J.---You can stop by and get fitted and make a stay in AC

    Who knows---You may just win enough to pay for your time

    Thanks for the input, what negative feed back has Joe had?

    Joe is a one man show and his turn around has made some unhappy---He does it all himself----Fitting----stock making----Chcekering---ETC---Right now he's doing 5 stocks and you should see the work-----There are others but when you price out them and Joe I think his price for what you get is well worth it.
    When your talking about a fitted stock,to get it right you may need 2 or 3 fittings----In your area,I'd suggest Allem's or Joe only because of your travel time----Allem's are so busy that their turn around time is long also.
    I use Joe because I'v seen his work and can be sure I'm getting what I planned for----Just remember that there are always two sides to negitive feedback---

    You won't go wrong with either---Joe or Allem's-----

    I just bought a new gun and just looking to get it fitted to me. I'm not looking to get a stock made. I have been shooting my grandfather's old BT99 for years that he passed down to me and wanting to get more serious about shooting trap so bought a new gun. Would this involve the same lengthy process?

    Sorry---I thought you wanted the stock made---I'd then go to
    Ed Yanchok
    Warren N.J.
    phone # 908-753-2365

    He'd give you all the necessary info needed---
    Just give him a call and tell him what your looking for and he'll stear you in the right direction---He may even know someone closer----George@SJB

    I do most of my fittings at the Howell trap club near Frehold NJ but as George says I am booked for about a month I'm building George his second stock.
