    Not the greatest wood but its a nice gun and it came out quite well.
    It's stocked in the grip more like a Perazzi than a Beretta. Leather covered Kick-eez

    Nice job Joe. I`ve stocked a few of them. Not my favorite to do. The polished side plates that will show any boo boo. Inletting for the side plates, and the locating tabs at both sides on the top. Not to mention the way the fore irons are. I don`t think most people have a clue as to what goes into one of these. Again, very nice work. Larry

    I had 2 of them stocked and I paid $4000 plus the wood. The stockmaker that I really like told me he charged $10,000 for the labor plus the wood and he was not really interested in doing one as he did 2 or 3 Fabris a year and he said that was all the sidelock business he wanted.
    You have a great gun and it looks super.

    Shoot well

    I've had the honor (?) of shooting both SO4's and SO5's and what I like most about them is that - even recent ones from the factory - they retain the lively handling characteristics of a pigeon/bunker gun. Unless 'adulterated' they remain generally 'light and lively'. The one SO4 'combo' I've come across - while heavy compared to its peers - is still light by modern ATA-style trap gun standards.

    With the exception of a Bosis, Fabbri or 'gen-u-ine' Boss, there is no gun with which I'd rather shoot. And this is from someone who owns three Perazzis.

    For now, it'll have to wait.

    Just for your information guys they are a *&^*&%&^%^% to stock and take quite a while this is not a 1 month turn around gun.

    Another thing to note is DT 10 barrels can be fit to fit both SO and ASE 90 guns.
    Usually an easy fit if you don't mind extractors instead of ejectors but this can be fixed as well with a bit of welding and minor machine work.
