    Give Charlie a call, one of the best. He's also one of the best live pigeon shooters in the world.

    Send the stock to Ed Yanchok to have it bent..Tell him exactly what you want done..He did a Perazzi DB81 for me and did a excellentjob..It is still in the same place as when he did it..He has a great turn around time..I'm well satified..There are no marks or crackes to see from the bending job..

    So the reason to have a stock bend as much as the one pic "Drew Hause" provided would be to shoot right handed using your left eye? I mean that sucker is a 45* angle. I am amazed a piece of wood can be bend as such and maintain its strength.

    Thanks Drew. Heck i didn't even see that pic on the page you provided. Where there is a will there is a way i guess. I'm sure that is a very tedious task that requires many years of practice.

    I've bent a lot of stocks, but never as much as those pictured. I don't believe that they were actually bent but rather were actually manufactured to that configuration. I usually bend them only far enough to move your shooting eye over to line up with the center of the rib. Up to approx. 1/4" where your face makes contact with the stock.
