    do a subject search on "PFS" or "precision" and you'll have all the reading material you could handle.

    as far as i'm concerned the PFS is WAAAYYY better than anything but the finest custom stock and who can afford those.

    no recoil - NONE. not reduced recoil - it is eliminated.

    excellent adjustability and changes are easy and quick. with the PFS you are an hour away from a custom fit stock that will make your shooting a lot more consistent.

    if i was king for a day i would like a wider selection of grip styles (especially in length of grip) and if i was buying one again i would opt for the ultimate fit comb upgrade as opposed to the standard comb. the ultimate fit is far superior.

    I bought a brand new Beretta 682 with an adjustable comb, added a gracoil unit and after a gun fitting session with Harlan Campbell still couldn't get it to fit properly. I now have a Kolar with a PFS and will never be without one again. (By the way the Beretta is for sale if anyone is interested)

    It is ultimately adjustable and eliminates felt recoil as ffwildcat stated. As I continue to lose the "battle of the bulge", I can adjust my comb to keep my POI centered. My Kolar is a combo and I use it for doubles as well without readjusting the recoil tension. I shoot in WI and like the ability to easily adjust LOP in winter to adapt to thicker clothing. Customer Service is outstanding from Vern.

    When you look at these facts and compare it to the cost of a custom piece of wood, the decision is easy.

    Please e-mail me if you would like to discuss it further.

    The only "con" is the esthetics.

    The stocks are the best, only thing better is the inventor Vern Brown!

    I have three one has Dawson grip and wood comb just for cosmetics.

    Absolutely perfect fit and virtually no recoil.

    I have 2 of them - wouldn't use anything else. The pros have already been covered. One con that hasn't been covered, but is easy to fix - the standard roll over comb that comes with the PFS gets COLD if you shoot in the winter. I covered mine with "leather" which worked and then got the Ultimate Fit Comb which doesn't get cold and is, in my opinion, worth the extra expense.

    I currently have two @ the moment. Believe, I have owned a total of 4 or 5. I can not say enough about them. They are a Top Notch product! Vern Brown (owner) is a super guy to deal with. Also, Bob Schultz (Target Shotguns) is a sponsor of this site, and he also sells them.

    by far the best custom stock for 1300.00 or less if found used. And it can be changed for anyone or anything. unlike custom wood.

    tracyhunter, check previous threads. You might see one for sale. I believe that one for a K-80 will fit a K-32. I think?

    Hello to all

    Don’t want to sound negative about PFS’s, but…my PFS was much heavier that the standard stock that came on my K80…the PFS was a whole pound heavier (that is without the extra weight attached to the PFS).

    I’ve since sold the gun, but reckon I made a mistake using the PFS on it due to this weight difference.

    Having said that, they do eliminate felt recoil.

    Regards from Australia, Mike

    Doberman - look at the picture above - the PFS in the bottom right corner has the ultimate fit comb. you can also do a search for ultimate fit comb and there is a thread on the subject. the main difference is the range of adjustability and the fit/feel. the standard comb is a rollover/cheekplate the ultimate fit comb looks just like the adjustable comb piece in a wood stock.

    I have one purchased for me to keep me shooting. I love it and affectionately call it "robo-stock" Being a small female and a lefty had to create a palm swell. but nothing a little bondo would not cure.

    Pro it's inexpensive and well built for the money. Con their not a custom stock and they have little positive in the way of a grip. Pro they do reduce recoil.
    Con they move; not exactly ideal for doubles. Con they do not stay where adjusted if they take a good bump.

    All in all not a bad unit as far as recoil reducers go. I think their fine for single shot guns if recoil is an issue. A properly built custom stock of the same weight will be more comfortable to shoot and better for doubles but a custom stock will set you back $2500 to $4500.

    $1200-$1400 is a bargan for what it is and if your shooting a bt 99 Citori or other lower priced gun's it's a good choice for Singles and caps.

    I shoot mine for doubles, caps, and singles. I love it! I have one on a MX-15 and a MX8. I set them both with a great deal of tension, meaning they do offer some recoil suppresion, but don't move a great deal also. I have neck and back problems. It helps a great deal, and you can move it to fit anyone!

    It's a myth that the PFS is a liability for doubles. My kid shoots primarily international trap and uses the 2nd shot to shoot chips. He has no problem staying in the gun. And the odd occasion that he shoots ATA doubles he hammers that 2nd bird.

    Additionally, his coach also shoots a PFS and he is a ATA doubles specialist, doesn't seem to bother him any.

    So don't let folks dissuade you from using a PFS for doubles. Yes, the gun moves, but if you have it set right and the gun fits properly the movement is all rearward and there is NO muzzle jump to take you out of the 2nd shot.

    Sorry, just had to get that out there.

    I have to jump in on muzzle jump. I talked with BigBore on this one a while back. I have a BrowningXT. adjusting the stock to where I really like it. Places the drop at heal at its lowest point. the top barrel does flip. If I shoot doubles I shoot lower barrel 1st. the flip on the secound shot is not a problem for me. as far as grip customizing. takes nothing more than bondo. Or better neadrite modelers putter. Unlike wood you can change this anytime to any shape and re paint black. If you really like it you can custom paint it also. For me being a lefty and the lack of a local stock fitter/maker. It was by far the best 1000.00 I spent getting a gun that fits me. At the end of the season I plan on making a cutom comb to be high enough where I can decrease the drop at heal. One thing on the grip. It would de nice if there was a shorter grip available. I have small hands.

    ffwildcat. "Yes, the gun moves, but if you have it set right and the gun fits properly the movement is all rearward and there is NO muzzle jump to take you out of the 2nd shot." Are you referring to pitch? 10Tenner

    Only problem is the comb. I never liked that skinny comb. And it didn't raise high enough with the added higher rib. So, I made my own. It's thicker and a little longer, fits my cheek better. Other than that, a good product.
