    I don't think he just wants to have a Krieghoff comb cut - he wants it cut like Krieghoff does it with sharp angles in the corners instead of rounded. Some stock guys can't do that.

    I had a local guy do two Model 32s for me that way. They came out nice but they were no fun to do and he asked me never to tell anyone he did them.

    I was told these style combs are done with a circular saw instead of a traditional band saw, then finished w/ a coping/keyhole type saw by hand

    I do a bunch of combs for Krieghoff and many other dealers and manufacturers, after the stock has been built. I do not use the "Krieghoff Cut". This particular cut is done while the stock is unfinished using circle saws on 3 seperate angles. Almost impossible to put a round blade on a finished stock without splinters and fragmentation. Factory cuts them long before they are even sanded. I dont know anyone who duplicates this cut after stock is finished. I dont, Tron dont, Dave Berlet dont, Rod dont, Pylinski dont, Heeg dont, Speedbump dont, and unless Kolar has changed their standard cut, they dont either. Krieghoff comb option is 500.00. All the above mentioned wood guys are charging half that or a little less. No decreased value in having any one of us do it, provided you recieve a quality job. Any of the above will give you a good quality job. Todd

    Chris Meast does do a "Krieghoff" style adj. comb. I have seen one and you can not tell the difference from the factory. I prefer Mark Deprez from Conesus, NY. His web site is www.mdstocks.com. Mike

    Ernest Marlette has done numerous exact Krieghoff cuts on K-80 stocks for me, both on new and used guns. They have all come back exact and perfect, the only way I can tell it from a factory comb is the excellent stainless steel mounting posts and hardware he uses, which is second to none.


    I assure you, that while any adjustable comb may work for your shooting needs on a Krieghoff, having the unique Krieghoff cut on your gun at time of resale will definately make a difference, its usually the first thing a knowledgable buyer asks or notices when showing interest in buying your gun. Especially if its a factory stock.

    The only two places I have ever seen that do the Krieghoff cut right are Ernest Marlette and Krieghoff International.

    Marlette did a adj. comb, Krieghoff cut on my Schilling Scroll sporting clay gun last year. The wood is some of the best looking I have ever seen on a Krieghoff and I wanted to keep it original. He did a mastereful job. J.D.

    Allem's Guncraft did one on my Browning Citori XT and I believe they used all the Kreighoff hardware. It's a beautiful job.

    Myself i like the angle cut better but as some says not many do them anymore.
    This was one done in 1990 by Hollingsworth with a soft comb

    I believe the man who did the two for me started by drilling very small holes where the angles would be, inserted a small saw blade in the holes and cut from there.
