    A gunsmith with a good reputation for bending stocks is Mike Orlen. You can find contact information for him on shotgunworld. com. He has a price list in the gunsmithing forum.

    It depends on the type of gun A gun that is inletted, such as a Perazzi or Krieghoff, can be bent but a gun like a Model 12 or Remington 90-T cannot. I usually charge 100. plus shipping. Phone 908 753-2365

    I believe that he wants to move the stock to the right so that he can bring the comb back to the left, closer to its starting point.

    I have had stocks bent by Jim Greenwood, Augusta, Kansas. Phone: 316-775-0161. Email: greenwood_stocks@msn.com. His shop is above Michael Murphy & Sons gun fitters.

    As I recall it is $150 for a single bend and an additional $100 for a second bend. Changing the cast would be just one bend.

    Greenwood has bent two guns for me and they have stayed bent.

    Bending a stock will not affect the finish.

    Stocks that fit like the 90-T, 870, 1100, Ljutic etc are the simplest to cast.

    For tanged guns with stock bolts, altering the inletting just a very little bit can cast a stock. Glass bedding will be needed.

    Acutal bending needs to be done on those guns without a stock bolt, ie S/S's.

    If heat is used, extra care needs to be taken because some finishes will blister.

    Jim Greenwood can bend your stock even if it has a stock bolt. He just bent a Browning 525 for me (cast and drop).
