    Kgun Shooter,

    After having both shoulders totally replaced, (over last 2 years) needed to shoot with very little recoil.

    I decided to have a Stock Lock made for my K-80, best money I have ever spent on anything to do with Trapshooting.

    I could not shoot again if it had not been for this decision, Doc said shooting day's were over, Pat McCarthy and his "Stock Lock" has proved the Doc wrong.

    I have been shooting the Stock for about 3 months now and absolutely love it, not cheap but worth ever cent I paid for it.

    Pat's service was second to non, he kept me informed on progress via e-mail and when it was ready I flew over from Downunder, he fitted it to my gun we shot the pattern board until I was totally satisfied, terrific man with a terrific product.

    Regards, Gary Kennerson, Sunny Sydney Australia.................. aka.Release Trigger.

    PS. And I am now shooting better scores than ever, had 2 major wins in the last 5 weeks, and absolutely no pain or problems with shoulders.

    K gun I would check with a custom stock maker there are other ways to reduce recoil and also get a fitted stock try Dennis Devault PH # 330-456-6070 he will make any stock you need. Pat

    K gun as Gary very explained, Pat's Stock Lock system really works, I have one on my K-gun, P-gun, Seitz and soon the Blaser, a heavy construction and drywall business took it's toll, you can't appreciate the comfort until a day of shooting then nightly shoot-offs! I believe a true testament is Leo Harrison record-setting scores with his Stock Lock. Leo is a fantastic shooter, and probably one of nicest men you will encounter, the comfort he has had with Pat's Stock Lock speaks volumes.Pat is an All-American shooter and can get you fit properly, as said before the best money spent for shooting today! incinerae em!

    MX205, I agree with you !00%, Check with Dennis, a properly fitted stock is the way to go.

    Custom fitting helps, but it will not compete with the recoil reduction of a Soft Touch, PFS, or Stock Lock. Been there, done that. Especially if you have serious neck and shoulder issues.

    Other than it needs constant tune up or repair. Shooting partner had to send his in and it took over 3 months to get it back and he switched to a PFS. This was the 3 or 4th time it had to be worked on. If you spend this kind of money you expect better service and a better product.

    I have also heard of many other complaints so "LET THE BUYER BEWARE".

    If someone needs one for a Perazzi I know one you can buy.

    I have no personal experience with one, but Phil Simms (walnutmaker) ProSoft stock has been getting good reviews. He ought to know something about these as he used to make those Stock Locks for Pat.

    I accidently deleted my first post, so I will repost. The Stock-Lock system takes out recoil. The customer service from Pat and crew is top-notch. If you have the money, get one. One thing to remember, it is mechanical. It does require maintanence to to be kept in top order.

    Both Stock Lock and Prosoft are two of the very BEST recoil systems on the market today, the dererence is the prosoft system is almost unbreakable. If by chance it does have a mishap the replacement part can be sent to you and you can install it yourself. No waiting weeks for your gun to be fixed!

    I had constant mechanical issues with my Stock Lock too. Sold the stock and went to new wood and a Soft Touch w/ magnet. Requires grease on the rods and thats it.

    Other then looking like crap it,s fine unless you are thinking of selling it .
    Remember it is a fit to the buyer stock and will not fit you . Unlike a PFS stock that will fit about anyone for 25 % of the cost . It also looks like crap but it,s suppose to .

    The newest version of the Stock Lock requires lots less maintenance and is much lighter in weight. Pat does try to get around to most of the bigger shoots and spends all his free time being available to anyone who might need service. Leo wouldn't shoot without his Stock Lock....

    When I talked to Phil about it, he said he may be able to use your existing stock if you are willing to put a new butt pad on that is 3/8" thicker than your existing, or add some spacer plates.

    Guys, Length is not an issue with a retro-fit Prosoft stock. We can make it any length you wish----and provide custom fit all for the same price. Any fit issues are addressed at the time your new rear pc is fabricated and dovetailed into your existing grip.

    Our website is under construction but you can see it at www.prosoftrecoil.com

    The photo on the site is YES a Model 12 Winchester Prosoft stock. It makes shooting a M 12 fun again.

    Thanks guys Phil Simms
