    Carl Holzman from Womelsdorf PA is the greatest and most reasonable. Will be at the PA shoot with me on Thursday but will not do it on site!!

    If you are getting a sore cheek, you would be better off investigting why it is getting injured.

    One of several causes for cheek pain is the wrong pitch on your stock. The pitch is ca orrect for you when, as you are mounting the gun with the barrel raised to normal shooting heght, the whole recoil pad, top to bottom, makes simultaneous contact with your sholder. If the bottom toe of the pad makes contact much before the top of the pad, you may have discoverd the cause of your "cheek slap".

    Seems to me the soft combs are not really that soft. When you think about it, they can't be to soft. Mine seems like it has become harder. Seems better to get the gun to recoil straight back. IMO.

    If you opt for "Soft Comb", have the maker cut your stock and NOT use the porkchop piece as his base. USE a fresh piece of wood for the new comb an save the old cut out. You stock will have considerably more retail selling value if you do.

    Good point Jack! Unfortunately my pork chop is the original wood.
