    Yes. Cut up a cheap stock. Keep the pretty one. You should be looking for a plain cheap stock. Jake

    I have the same gun and wouldn't even think of cutting the stock. I did add some lead to the inside of it, no damage to the wood and the felt recoil problem was eliminated. J.Woolsey

    Ok it is up to you and only you so what is this gun going to do for you is it going to be a chick magnet or a shooter.

    Ok here is mine below and it has been very good to me.

    I have always loved black wal nut wood...

    First of all you got to decide which way will pay the bills of the hobby of shooting trap.


    If you can look good and shoot good then by all means do what ever it takes to make it happen but in real life if it was me I would do as some others suggested cut up a cheap stock and save the nice one when you sell it a year from now because you think the barrel is bent and don't wan't to make a re bend on it so unless you have plenty of money then do like us normal folks most of us like to get our money's worth out of stuff so let us know on how bad you want a pretty gun vs a gun that will make you proud when ever you win a lot of major titles.

    How about getting a nice stock set from Cole Gunsmithing and then modifying it to your liking? You'll still have your original, unaltered set and also a nice set with the features that you want. Prices for his stock sets aren't too bad, and some are very nice indeed.

    If recoil is the problem I 2nd going with the PFS. If you sell the gun put your stock back on and sell the PFS separatly. Problem solved.

    After you shoot one shell out of your gun, it is used. unless you cut off half of the stock it should not be a big deal either way. Cut it and make it fit so that you can shoot to the best of your amiabilities. Cut it. John

    Cut it and be done with it.

    If you bought it for pretty looks than you bought it for the wrong reason. Looks aint gonna make it shoot better and looks aint gonna do nothin for ya so cut the dang thing and be done with it.
