    The manual says it comes with the screw 10 turns out from the stop. Tried shooting that way and seemed like there was too much movement noticed in the forearm. Tightened it down to 8 turns and still has more forearm movement than I like. I am shooting 1-1/8oz, 2-3/4 dram, factory loads. I guess I will get used to this forearm movement in time. How do you PFS shooters have your recoil adjustment screw set and what ammo do you use with it (how many turns out on the recoil setting screw)?

    Sorry if this is a dumb question............but you do have your locknut installed, right?

    (this is the 1/2 set screw that locks your recoil reduction adjustment into place)

    If you have the instructions it explains it in black and white ... If you do not put the lock nut in there once its adjusted it will not stay in adjustment ... Tighten it until it feels right for you, then put the lock nut in behind it ... I liked mine a little tighter than most people do but I didn't want it to get a run at punching my shoulder by having it to loose ... I see a lot of people who have them where they collapse completely which to me defeats the purpose of having it ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Tractorboy,

    What WPT said is correct also if you are on the large side (like me) I needed to put considerable pitch in the stock so the gun came straight back into my shoulder when recoiling.

    Whithout the pitch I tend to get some muzzle flip, I set mine by winding in to stiff recoil and slowely adjusting until recoil felt correct with next to little recoil movement (straight back into shoulder) I have had both shoulders totally replaced and can shoot all day with the stock set as stated.

    I have a Stock-Lock on my K-80 and a PFS on my Perazzi and both react in the same manner.....Release Trigger

    Some good info above. I had two tapered wedges pitching my stock down and kept tightening the recoil spring until it stopped hitting my middle finger with the trigger guard. Once you get it set right, you'll enjoy it and being able to get the fit you want, worth every cent you paid.

    I have my PFS stock set at 4 turn out from full hard with a 1/4" pitch spacer.
    I got the stock more for fit them a recoil reduction. It work very good and I have 4 PFS stocks on my guns.

    You can get the pitch spacers from Vern Brown who is PFS, they fit like they were made for the damn thing probably because they were ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
