    How much movement do you set the PFS stock for?

    In other words. Put the butt on the floor and push the gun down. How much did it move?

    One half-inch, set 12 turns out. I think the last time I measured, the travel (compression) distance increased as the tension decreased (softer setting).

    I think you'll find responses all over the map, from so tight it doesn't move to so loose it can't be loosened any more. I have mine set @ 10 turns, which gives me 3/8 to 1/2" of movement.

    I have my PFS set at 1/4 to 3/8 movement. It moves enough to take up the recoil but to much that I fell the stock move.

    Vern sets them at 10-12 turns out from bottomed out. Don't think the softer you make it the softer it'll be. It works best when the washers are allowed to absorb the recoil. That's what it's designed to do.
