Been thinking about a Wenig Harlan Campbell stock for my Trap Special...any of you have one now that had the original wood on it to begin with? How much heavier is this stock roughly over the original wood? I need more cast off on my gun. Don't want to bend stock I have... Any used ones out there? Thanks in advance. Jeff Philipbar/puablo

Wenig calls it the 'New American', however if you ask them about 'The Twisted Sister', they'll work with you.

Go to abt p.4 of their catalogue, then a couple of pages later and look at the 'Ladies' stock - same idea, but better pics.

Jeff, I had one installed on my perazzi mx15 at the grand. Great stock. I think its a bit heavier denser wood. I was able to find one that fit excellently. I will ty and post pics this evening.

Jeff, check with Dennis DeVault, he designed the original for Harlan. You will get a custom stock that fits and somehow takes out the recoil. Cindy's checkering ain't half bad either, lol. Good luck. Harv Shell

From everything I read and all I have talked to the DeVault stock works wonders for most shooters. My problem, its just so dang ugly. I would have to know for sure that I could add several targets to my average before I could bring myself to add it to the end of my gun. Beauty IS in the eye of the beholder though.

Mark, I wouldn't say its ugly, but is radically shaped. Have to admit it pretty wood and checkering. I could deal with the appearance of its shape if it elimated a bunch of recoil. Wish I had the extra coin to buy and try one.

Jeff,

Chris Vendel took my measurements and ordered my Harlan Campbell style stock. 2 weeks later he called me and we put it on. That was Sept last year. The only thing I have done since then is to raise the comb 1/8" higher. The better wood is a bit heavier, but I think it helps with recoil as there is none.

Hope this helps.

Jeff,

I moved to Duncan, SC last fall. I made the SC,NC,OH and KY state shoots. We plan on going to the Missouri, Fall Handicap next month.and I want to try shooting at Hog Heaven in Tenn after that.

Take care of yourself

Jeff,

I spoke with Harlan tuesday, he will be at the Northeastern Grand in Sept. I am sure he would be able to answer any questions you might have.

Ok, here's the pics of my Harlan Campbell Wenig stock on an MX-15 ...

I've really noticed a difference going to something with the palm swell grip and "twisted sister" style stock...
