    My grandson wants to shoot trap. I figure my sx-1 field can be made into a trap gun for him.Probable a full size trap stock could be cut down and cut the modified barrel down install some kind of a choke set up for him. Already drilled for shell catcher By Bob B. He was a good one.
    He is going on 10 is of small stature. How far should I cut the barrel back. Any more advice Please fell free to give. He will be shooting light loads.Thanks Ken Uhlbeck

    Ken a 26 inch barrel with tubes should be fine. The stock will need to be very short. I have a trap stock that is short( 13 Inches I think)so if you are interested let me know.. Jeff sx1jeff@Yahoo.com P.S I have a matching pair( length) oner is skeet the other is trap. You can have the pair for 150 bucks plus 10 for freight. Jeff

    I'm trying to get by as cheaply as I can. I know the super X field of mine will do the job. It will save putting money out for a gun. It will cost enough to get the barrel cut and choke installed. Thanks for the replies so far. I don't care if the stock isn't nice it doesn't effect the shooting. Ken

    SuperXJeff, I picked up the stocks today and they were in excellent shape.
    When he gets shooting he will have a sharp looking trap gun. Now I have the barrels the stocks . Now I have to pick one to shortened and get tubed. Then to get him strong enough to shoulder and shoot. That will come in time and really can't hurry that too much. Thanks to all who helped. Ken Uhlbeck
