    One more for this week. The following is a Krieghoff standard un-single combo that features Turkish Walnut supplied by Mike Mann. I know I got some comments on the last Krieghoff having such a large stock, so I want everyone to see that not all stocks are created equal. It all depends on the fit and the size of the shooter. Each person that comes in is judged on their sport they are doing, the height of the rib and what the shooter is trying to accomplish. As always thank you for taking a look.

    Dennis, the wood grain on this K-gun is very similar to the 20 gauge 391 I bought from Dean several years ago....You guys are extremely talented in your gun building. Cindys checkering is incredible.....Pete LaBella

    Dennis,

    One word fantastic, you are right not as much wood in this one as most appear to have, also much less pitch than nearly all of your stocks that I have seen.

    Are most of your clients large chested (typical trapshooter build) or is pitch a thing you build into your stocks as a rule ?

    Thanks again for your posts, they are a sight for sore eyes.

    Respectfully,.....Release Trigger.........Downunder.

    I love the dark stripe in the wood. It make it appear more like English that Turkish walnut.

    To answer two questions,

    Most of the folks that come in are large in the chwst and require pitch to take the bit out of the face and drive the recoil straight back. Also the more upright a person wants to get the more pitch is required to fit the angle in the pocket. I written about this in past newsletters on pitch and fit. The finish is a urethane finish with a special blend of other steps added in to prep for the final spray finish coats. Thank you for the inquiry.
