    Hey guys, I'm looking for someone to put an adjustable comb and maybe a recoil device on my BT-99 that i just purchased. Who does the best work at a fair price?

    thanks in advance

    If you come to Ohio, you might want to check out ROD"S CUSTOM STOCKS. HE is in Shelby. Does very nice work, not taking anything away from Tron. Glenn Allison

    Tron is good at what he does. His prices are fair and turn around is fast.

    He has done a lot of stocks for me (target and hunting shotguns) and I have never been disappointed with his workmanship.

    He will tackle unique jobs. If you go to his website, you will see a K-80 that has a severely cast off comb. That is my gun. It incorporates the standard K-80 hardware and I can put it back to "factory stock" if I ever sell the gun. An excellent and cost effective way to get over 5/8" of cast off. I managed a hair under 97 in singles this year using this setup.

    Stocker John Fittinger is posting on ts.com right now. He has done unique and exceptional work for me. He is in Oregon. Great guy to deal with.

    Just sent one to Tron yesterday. He's installing a Gracoil and adjustable comb.
    You won't be sorry.

    My only suggestion would be to have Tron install a RAD unit instead of a Gracoil. It is my opinion, (and that's all it is), that the RAD is a better system than a Gracoil. JMHO. Ed

    I have a RADII on a Perazzi and a Gracoil on a Alfermann. The Gracoil feels the best to me. Everyones felt recoil is different. Pull up "tronspacegunworks". He has his prices listed.

    I had no idea that Tron did such nice work as shown on his web site, it's really worth visiting. I especially liked the powder coated (black hardware) and the offset comb hardware. I however couldn't tell how much the offset comb hardware was. It seems that one could install that one's self, is that correct? Bruce

    I've had Graco work on 2 stocks for me. I would recommend them highly.
    Tracy and Lawana are the best.

    I recommend Cor-kel Arms. Here is a job that Larry just did for me.

    I just received my stock back from Cor-Kel Arms. I had Larry install an adjustable comb and an adjustable recoil pad assembly. I am very happy with the result. My wife loves the way that Larry put a satin finish on the pad adjuster so that it matches the satin nickel finish on my receiver. Great work Larry!

    There is a guy from New York by name of Mark Dupree or something like that.He is usually at Pa state shoot and I may have the last name wrong but he did a K-80 stock for me years ago and it was flawless,as I am very picky about things like that although it took a couple months it was worth it. It was a very high gloss finish on high grade wood.Very pleased with his work.
