    Thanks to everyone who weighed in my previous post and made the decision for my first trap gun a little easier. I purchased the Ljutic Mono as pictured below, sorry ahead of time for the quality of photos. Hopefully the small crack in the stock can be seen that had me concerned. I was able to purchase another Ljutic stock at auction last week, and may or may not install it based on your comments. How bad do you guys think it is, is it worth fixing, and who should I have fix it?

    For what its worth,it does'nt look that bad from here. If you can shoot it now,just use it till it go's then use the new stock.That little crack may never budge and your worrying for nothing.J.M.H.O. good luck with it

    Smart move buying it, now just shoot it. If it gets bigger than it gets bigger, so what? Swap the stocks, have someone drill small holes at the ends and fill with glue. You're way ahead already.

    Nice... good luck shooting with this gun!
    I see that a newer Ljutic Dynokic / Centennial Pro breech release button with the extended finger area has been retrofitted to the gun (the stainless steel type). that will make it easier to open. Use your middle finger to open it up to save you trigger finger from soreness and tendonitis.

    I am sure you will have a good time with it.... take it out to the patterning board to see where it shoots.

    Great purchase for a starter gun. Very smart move. You won't be sorry. Built like a tank.

    Good luck!

    Does anyone have any experience with the stock currently on the gun. I believe it is a JS model, but I am not sure. My question is if the stock should "bottom out" on recoil. I can collapse the stock by hand to bottom out with relative facility, could this be the culprit for the crack? Any help or I.D. would be appreciated!

    Nice Gun. If it was mine I would get hold of JS custom stocks and send him a picture of the stock and ask about your stock setting. Everyone I seen collapsed fairly easy with light setting. He also should be able to fix that crack.
    Good luck
