    I have a question about Perazzi trap stocks, that y'all may be able to help me with.

    I notice that quite a few of the factory trap stocks have an adjustable comb that looks "added on". They don't look like they were cut from the same blank of wood. Is there a reason for this type of stock design, or just more economical to produce?

    Here's a picture to better describe what I'm trying to say.

    That is a question we all wanted to know but were afraid to ask. Interestingly, the latest stocks seem to be an another moderistic style but with a bit of throwback styling in them.

    The adj. comb and forend are indeed cut from different woods, with the exception of high grade guns.

    And Steve... Do you know that a quite famous shooter/instructor, clinic guy thinks that the different wood grains have something to do with that these stocks kick more than the regula styles?

    Actually, my experience was pretty good with this style stock.

    Thanks Steve and MIA. It's always struck me as kinda weird that Perazzi was the only ones doing this.

    Notice how the comb is larger from the separate cut as it would be from the usual cut from the stock? Looks like a lot more area to choose from for fit.

    It's because Perazzi can swap them for different rib heights. Did that for me on my MX-15 at the 2005 Grand. Just swapped it for a lower comb.

    It's so ugly, it keeps me from buying a "P" gun.
