    I shot in a tournament this weekend using my Precision Fit Stock for the first time and after breaking the shotgun open 500 times the back side of the cheek piece caused a pretty painful bruise to come up under my arm, pcitured inserted. Has this happened to anyone else and what did you do to remedy it? I thought I might be able to use Bondo to increase the surface area but my research has led me to believe Bondo will not adhere to plastic.

    I have sent an email to Apogee/Vern to see if he has had any other scenarios like this and for his suggestions as well.

    Thanks to all who respond!

    Yup, same thing happens to me. I fashioned a wood filler piece. It straddles the two height posts and is held in place by double face tape.

    Would you mind sending a picture of your stock? How well does the double stick tape work with recoil?

    Here is what it looks like. Nothing fancy.

    Just a guess along the same thoughts as reyper, try putting the muzzle down on a pad when you open it. Ross Puls

    Thanks for the picture Bob, I think I will try this. No pad to put it on in skeet and has to be broken down before leaving the station. Thanks Ross. Thanks Rey, The gun is really tight and it takes quite a bit of force to open unlike the gun I just sold. By the end of the weekend I was having to hold it just a little lower and somewhat pop the gun using the weight of the barrel to open it and my trigger hand as the fulcrum. Short arms don't help either because it is difficult to get it any lower and out from under the bicep.
    Thanks to all!

    Bruise is caused by the sharp edge of the Comb Hitting the under arm when breaking it open, typical occurunce.
