    Most of you have heard of Phil's new Prosoft Recoil System. It is GREAT. I received mine a few weeks ago and it shoots like a dream on my TM1. He used a magnificent piece of burled maple that turned out beautifully. Here are a few pics of his excellent work. It mad my old TM1 look great and shoot better, with NO recoil!!

    It only collapses upon firing. Kinda like a stock lok but better. Phil posted some neat pictures when he introduced them to the market place a year or so ago.

    Wood is worth more than the gun.

    Dick: That is a great looking chunk of wood, now you can go back to shooting those sporting clays loads at trap. Look forward to seeing it when I come over to South River or you make it over to Dixie Trap & Skeet. Have a great Christmas. Tim Hall

    Phil Simms Prosoft Recoil System is the best recoil reduction system I've ever shot with! It doesn't torque into or away from the face as some will. He's devised and built a real winner with this one!

    Regolf,

    Sir, not wanting to hijack your thread and yes the stock looks fantastic.

    After recently having both my shoulders fully replaced, I contacted Pat McCarthy (Dawson Industries) regarding his stock lock system and the following photo's show the results.

    We are very fortunate that we live in times that we have these wonderful choices to keep us medically challenged stay in the game.

    I cannot speak highly enough of the recoil reduction as the gun does not feel as though it goes off, Doc said no more shooting for me, but with either of these systems I am sure that people with mine or similar medical problems can go on to shoot for many years to come.

    Good shooting and break-em-all,yours in sport.

    I am recoil sensitive and old (73).

    I have had both the Stock-Lock and the second Pro-Soft built.

    They both work great, exactly as expected. Although they look similar they are not even close to being a copy. The Stock-Lock has the rear part of the stock sliding into the grip part of the stock, the Pro-Soft is opposite, the grip part slides into the rear part of the stock, this means that Phil can use your old stocks grip if you want and install his parts on a new piece of wood and attach it to your grip to lower the price, if wanted. Also the grip can be smaller than the Stock-Lock as the grip slides into the rear, not the rear into the grip.

    Next difference is the recoil systems, the Stock-Lock has a ball bearing lock system and springs. The Pro-Soft has a magnet for the lock, hydraulic system and spring. This means the rebound is controlled like a shock absorber on a car, the Stock-Lock has no dampening and cause some, not all, fits for the second shot in doubles. Phil can alter the spring and also the magnet's strength for a perfect feel. Leo Harrison 111 shoots with a Stock-Lock with no problems as you can see by his numerious wins. It just wouldn't work for me, so I changed to the Pro-Soft.

    The cost is about $1,000 less with the Pro-Soft. The Pro-Soft is approx. $3,000.00 and the Stock-Lock is approx. $4,000.00 You can upgrade the wood and the cost will go up with either system.

    Hopefully I have answered any questions anyone would have about these excellent recoil reducing systems. The people behind these systems are also great to work with and give outstanding service.

    Merry Christmas to all ---

    Tom Strunk

    Tom Strunk, Just as you have so nicely stated you are a former Stock-Lock owner as are a great number of my current customers. Prosoft looks better and works better---just a fact. Till you've tried it I don't think anyone has a fair opinion! Phil Simms
