    Who would you recommend as being experienced (and successful) at bending Perazzi stocks? I need one moved a quarter-inch or so over at the back, with a little twist put in at the toe.

    Thanks.

    I will let others recommend a stock bender but as far as twising the stock, correcthing the pitch on the stock usually eliminates the need to move the toe of the recoil pad nearer the arm pit.

    The pitch is correct for you, when the whole recoil pad, top to bottom, makes simultaneous contact with the shoulder as the gun is being mounted with the barrrel raised to a normal shooting height.

    If the pointed toe of your pad makes contact with your shoulder very much before the upper portion of the pad, it indicates that the pitch on your stock is wrong for you and should be corrected.

    Joe Shiozaki of JS Air-Cushion stocks has bent a few for me - he's in the greater Los Angeles area.

    He will take a look at it for you and tell you if he can do it or not - usually not a problem for the typical Perazzi stock with plain wood.

    Why not a comb job and a twister pad? Then the next owner can make it fit him too.

    Jim Greenwood of Agusta Kansas does first class work. He has bent several stocks for me all with great results.

    Allem's did mine. Here are some photos of their German-made machine (sorry for the poor focus).

    I don't know that a stock can actually be twisted but I'm no expert. I would suggest that an adjustable recoil pad adapter like the one on my gun might be a better method of obtaining good fit, as it offers more flexibility than twisting the stock, if that can be done.

    Good luck!

    Hough Lomas in Elkhart Lake Wisconsin can do it. If you to add an erector set and screw up the balance of a gun, go ahead. If you ever want to shoot the gun at other disciplines, that are not premounted, bending is the answer.
