    Wow - very nice. I really like SKB 85TSS ... but the problem I have with them is in the grip. The grip shape just is not comfortable for my hand. This would solve that problem for sure.

    While on the SKB subject.That was one gun the fella that got me into trap said to stay away from.His view was that he knew a fella several years ago that had a SKB and couldn't finish a big shoot without trigger trouble.Anyone know if that is still a problem with them or has that problem been addressed.Reason asking,seems I've seen New SKBs listed on this site and they were as cheap as Brownings .

    Man that is narrow in that glove grip stock area. Any concern of it cracking? Do you have any reinforcing inside the grip area? Looks comfortable, and is similar to what I need in my KS-5 stock, because of the long top tanged receiver. Jon

    I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Granted that takes some serious skills, kudos.

    Doug H. many years ago SKB had a batch of bad springs. That has since been corrected ... but there are people here who will never forget and keep bringing up a non issue.

    I guess it makes them feel superior?

    The ad for new SKB was silver dollar. If I can put the scratch together I'll be giving him a call. I shot one at the club I belong to and I just felt right.
