    I have the GC-7 Grade III combo, great gun. And definitely get the pretty one, then you won't have gun envy.

    I added a recoil reducer to the stock and had it fitted to me. It has performed flawlessly, very easy to take apart (the ejectors and such for cleaning). I do not think there is a better value out there. I went to buy a Beretta and ended up with this one. I got an Americase and the unsingle combo for about 1K less than the Beretta.

    I have a friend with an 85TSS that he loves dearly and shoots like it was built just for him..I got to admit I really enjoyed when he let me try it...he wants another buttstock/forend so as to leave his hi-grade wood the unmolested factory length for summer and another set to shorten for winter...anybody out there have a spare wood set for an 85TSS??...email me if you do(remove xx's)..dealers welcome too

    I prefer the wide rib on my 85TSS over the tapered one on the TTR series. I agree with YODA100 on the higher adjustable rib. Wish this offered a 1/4" higher fixed rib as well for the O/Us. IMHO, the 85 series SKBs are the best made, best shooting, lowest recoiling guns made for the money, PERIOD!

    One downside to the SKB is the poor resale value. They are just not a
    high demand gun. A better choice in that price range is the Guerini.

    I think Guerinis are becoming so popular as to put them in a much higher price bracket ..TSKBs are a great value just always keep it as a backup and you'll never lose...one day they will get the respect they deserve, I'm sure

    I bought one with high grade wood-standard stock with adjustable comb. Its a great shooter. Half the price of Kreighoff or Guerini. Get the pretty wood-the standard is pretty plain.

    I recently bought a GC-7 with upgraded stock that matches the forearm perfectly from a very honest gentleman on this site a short while ago and remain very happy with it. There isn't a thing wrong with newer SKB's.
