    Having had three Custom stocks made by three different guys I have found this . Most stock fitters - Makers would like you to shoot like they do . Most don,t fit you to your style of shooting but there style . Some times it works but most of the time not .

    I shot yesterday with a lady with a new stock from Dennis . She shot it very well and it was a very very nice piece of lumber .

    Bob James is at the top of my list. He told me what type targets I was missing after seeing me mount my custom made stock. He was 100% correct and a nicer gentleman as you will ever meet.
    If you can't shoot the gun with the fitter find another one.

    Depends on where you live...

    I agree Bob James is good, but I live in eastern PA.

    I like being able to meet - go over the gun - even try it BEFORE the final finish is done, etc.

    Joe Goldberg (NJ) is the best in this area.

    Buy a PFS and fit yourself. Not pretty, but works great.

    Tom Smith is a true craftsmen.

    Nice guy and a pleasure to talk with. Has a trap in his backyard for dialing in.

    Harlan Campbell is the best stock fitter I've ever come across. Do you need a fitter or a stockmaker? I don't think he's very good at actually building the stock...
