My much awaitted Butler XX12 auto was delivered today at 10:00am mst. I am anxious to get it to the range, but high winds and snow today.

I went to S&S Stocks in Polson,Mt and had them make me a custom stock for the gun. They were very attentive to may wants as they fitted me to the stock. It turned out just as I wanted. They made it shoot just like my old gun.

I ordered the gun with both a pull and a release trigger which came with the gun. I was very satisfied the professionalism of everyone that I dealt with especially Jason Lee & Scott Smith. Thank you, am looking forward to shooting the gun. Bill

When I went to S&S, I got a factory gun to take with me. The folks at S&S made a try stock and put it on the factory gun. Then we took my old gun and patterned it. Next with the help of bondo they made the Butler's poi like my old gun, then after I was sure that it shoot like I wanted in comparision to my other gun, I shoot 25 targets off the trap machine at S&S's shop. Everthing was where I wanted it,so using the stock they assembled with bondo and skill,they made my custom stock that was on the gun that I received in the mail today.

A kind young man loaned me a left-hand Butler last week while I was at the Casa Grande Arizona Trap & Skeet Club tournament.

Shot it for Singles and Handicap.

Interesting gun.

I'm missing something here. I thought the XX12 came with an adjustable comb and adjustable rib so you could make it "shoot where you want"?

How about a picture?

The Butler I shot May of 2012 in Reno had both adjustable comb and rib. It is kind of an unsingle semi auto with the barrel sitting low in the receiver, which no doubt aids with the perceived lack of recoil.

While the stock that it comes with is adequate, it is not even close to my Infinity 221 or most recently I picked up an Elite 391 conversion with Dennis' great wood on it. The fit and finish on probably any custom stock is just leaps and bounds different than what a factory stick of wood has to offer. That said, the standard stock with minimal adjusting fit well enough that the XX12 breaks targets nicely without a doubt.

Butler is more than willing to sell the gun without the standard stock. The discount was not enough that I would personally get the standard stock and keep it as well.

Shell catcher...heard they have one, yet to have them produce even a artist sketch.

The point is not about restocking a new gun with exhibition turkish, english, etc, but for point of impact. I have safes full of custom stocked guns by Dock, Dennis, and Bobby. I do this because I want my guns to look as good as they shoot. I don't take a brand new gun that is fully adjustable and have a new stock made until I am sure I am going to want to keep and shoot the gun.

Let's see a picture.

Here is a picture of the Butler with the stock that I had made for it.It isn't a very good picture, but you can get an idea of stock. It is a variation of the stock on Jason Lee's gun.

viperrt,

Agreed, the difference is "good enough" vs. "It was right on and I didn't know it went off". Looking great is a terrific side benefit. Being I rather large fellow, my stocks are unique looking but they fit like a glove.

One gun actually delivered - right before the SHOT show in Las Vegas. As the
church lady used to say on Saturday Night Live: " How convenient."

Glad to see them getting in the hands of shooters. I shoot more skeet than trap. I sure wish they would send a demo gun to one of the big skeet shoots in Texas. I would truly like to try one out.
637g I hope you shoot it better than you take pictures;). Enjoy it and keep us up to date. Larry
