    Is it possible to have my pfs sent to a stockmaker and have a duplicate made to the exact measurements out of wood, i'm north of the border where stockfitters are scarce

    st8: You miss pretty wood don't ya. I've been toying around buying a PFS for my gun but they look to mechanical, like an artifical leg. If the grip and cheek piece were wood I think I'd buy one. Dave T.

    Check out this site www.targetshotguns.com and go to Precision Stocks. I like the wood grain look!

    I saw a lady shooter at Middletown shooting a PFS that looked as you describe. I was impressed.

    Im not a fan of these but it really looked good.

    Someone out there is jazzing these up much better.

    I just saw a PFS fitted with a beautiful Walnut grip and cheek piece at the Golden West made by Stocker John. I'm sure that it would be as durable as the slippery plastic grip on my PFS and looks much better than just adding a wood cheek piece. He also makes custom stocks and I'm sure he could duplicate your dimentions right off of your PFS. If there were a problem, or additional fitting you wouldn't have to worry about being taken care of.

    As much as I love my PFS stocks.. in Italy.. they use them for "TRY" stocks.. the main problem is.. on a PFS you normally use a thinner pad.. and the unit eats up much of the recoil.. While the stock dimentions remain the same.. the stockfitters leave it a wee bit long.. and play with the pitch to get it just right for you.. and your mount.. You'll get perfect with the PFS.. but when you transfer it to wood..that turns into almost..and you'll need to tweek it just a little.. Hope this helps.. BTW.. John is a fantastic stocker and gun fitter.. All Good.. Mike
