    I was just there two days ago for the first time. It's an amazingly well-run shop full of talented and hard-working people; you'll get good service and a fine stock besides.

    Take advantage of the time that you are there. Walk around and talk to the "artists" working there. They love to talk about what they are currently working on. It will truly be an eye-opening experience for you. Oh, yeah! I almost forgot, just wait until you see how the targets smokeball with your new stock.

    Neil does this mean your giving up your mole skin and body putty stock for a nice shiny checkered one? I spent time at Wenigs being custom fitted when i bought a new Alfermann. Time well spent.

    WOW!!! What great looking guns. And now they will shoot where the owner is looking. Maybe I should take the money I was going to spend going to the Grand American and have my mono-gun restocked. I'm always adjusting the comb to get it just right.

    I have to ask, was that a laminated stock?? It looks like it might be. Pretty guns!!

    I'm jealous!!

    It is a great experience. I had it done last year and I am thankful for it.

    The one thing you must keep in mind is that unless you already had a stock that fit you perfectly (and even if you did this still applies) this new stock is going to change how your gun shoots. It will change how you swing, how the recoil feels, and many other things. I have a short neck and really broad shoulders (imagine that in a trapshooter...lol). So when I was using the factory Perazzi stock I had, I was canting the gun without realizing it. Because of this, my sight picture on left quarter angles was really far in front of the target. After I got the new stock, I was shooting the fronts off of, and sometimes even completely in front of left angles. It was difficult at first, but by the end of the year, I was on the 27 and was starting to break 100's in singles again.

    I hope you enjoy it. Practice a lot and it will pay off, as this is one of the best investments you can make in a shooting sport.

    Yours in sport,

    I just got back form wenig man is that wood high. I got the best I could afford of extra fancy and I was told it is a strong piece. I shot it at there farm about 50 shot could not tell much but it felt really good,and I think it hit where I aim.

    It is the same thing as getting a new gun, and learning how to shoot it. In my case, POI ended up being lower.
