    Yes, Joel Etchin has a gun smith at his shop. I purchased a combo set from them last summer that had the comb installed by them and the gentlemen does a fabulous job. I know there are as good smiths that do it but I will guaranty none better. Give them a call. I am sure they would be glad to help you out. A first class operation to say the least.

    I will also highly recommend the work of their gunsmith, Mark, who is a fellow trap shooter. I had an adjustable comb installed on my Citori XT, last fall and absolutely first class work.

    Give them a call and ask Mark. Mark is the only one who can answer that.

    If you are going to be at any large trap shoot (like the Southern Grand), the Country Gentleman (Todd Nelson) does outstanding work on cutting combs and in my opinion, has the best adjustable recoil pad on the market. Over night service and will fit the gun to you.

    Another good word for Mark, he's done all of my stock work and I'd use no one else.

    Dick Egolf- Are you using the word fair to mean honest or that the business is only fair as opposed to being excellent?

    Bought a 680's series stock and forend from Joel about a year ago or so on Ebay. Called them after winning item, asked about having the comb being made adjustable. Said yes, and put me on phone with Mark. He did an excellent job on comb. You won't be disappointed. Also bought a DT10 from them at the 2007 Grand. Got a great deal on a slightly used one. They are very nice people to deal with.
