    I'm searching for a TM1 or 90T and I see a lot of references to palm swell on the Perazzi's. What does this mean?

    Ignorant to the Swell...

    If you are right handed the pistol grip of the stock where it fits your grip will have an enlarged area on the right side called a palm swell. It helps give you a better grip on the stock with your right hand. HMB

    A palm swell is a slight rise on your stock either on the right of left side, right where the center of your palm would go. Usually makes your grip a little more confortable imho. Bulge.

    It is extra wood on the grip of the shotgun that gives an ergonomic edge to the shooter. It is an extra cost item that I can't afford so I just go out and grab a hornet or a wasp out of the air and swell my own palm. No need for the extra wood or the cost. The first line is true. The second was meant to be humourous.

    You don't have to use as much grip pressure with a swell. Less fatigue after a couple hours of shooting. Hoosier thats funny. Wayne

    90T's came with ambidextrous palm swells.
