    Bought new K80 Trap Special from a out of state dealer.It looked good but couldn't shoot as it would become uesd and not returnable. I kept it and when to the club and shoot it well for the first time out. Came back home with my face herting.Moved the comb over and up and shot it again..and my Face under my right eye and cheek bone still herts. I didn't feel it slap me when shooting but home it feels like a minor tooth ache. Please can you,the readers offer some help I would be Most Greatful........Thank you.

    You could try a soft comb.

    It depends on your budget. The easiest fix is to send off your adjustable comb to someone like Jack West,( last phone # I had for him in Oregon was 541-454-2805 ) and have your comb made into a soft comb.

    Pat McCarthy at Dawson Enterprises make a really nice stock for these guns that you need to go to Dawson's web site to see, but the cost is around $4,000.00 Their web site is www.dawsonent.com

    I have just purchased the same gun as a combo with top single, no choke tubes. Is yours top or unsingle? Mine is getting release triggers at Allem's Guncraft and the barrels have been sent to Wilkinson's. I have only seen the gun in pictures, expect it to be delivered to me around the end of May.

    The stock is probably too long, the pitch is probably wrong and the recoil pad is probably the wrong design for you. I fought this for years being left handed. Go see a stock fitter. Hope this helps, Roy

    Roy......Yes I think the stock is too long and I do not like the K Gun pads.
    I also noticed that the K gun comes in at (9 Lbs) and my other guns at (9 1/2 lbs)

    Thanks

    What do you expect?? Gun with a ton of drop at the heel are suppose to kick upward..I think they call it "laws of physics".. The straighter the stock the better. Also, use spell check on your next post.

    Bill, take off the stock pad which is of very high quality but very rough on shoulders and recoil due to the concave nature of the pad profile, install a straight pad or a rocker pad that's more convex,then if need be place a washer or two on the top screw between the pad and stock, experiment a little, it will really help your face and shoulder. incinerate em!

    Sounds to me that your stock is for a leftie with that bad of bruising, it happened to a buddy of mine from PA, i wound up selling the wood and barrels for him, you may be able to have the stock bent to your specs if it is wrong, Tom Nowak.

    Thanks again to all. I'm going to meet with Ed Y. The Stock Doc at the club and see where we go. The gun came fron Hi Grade in PA. I here that Chris at Clay Target Sports in NJ is not to open to help fit a gun that he did not sell.I'm sure the stock is for a right handed shooter as far as cast I'm not sure.I hope all I need is to have the stock cut and a new pad added. If I have to go for another $2000 or 3000. on a stock the gun is history.

    Bill
