Does anyone have any experience with the Jack West Stocks? Are they good etc. I am looking to put one on my 11-87 field gun. The Web site is down and can't get any info like price etc. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I recently obtained one of the stocks for my 11-87. Naturally I took it apart to paint it. Very few parts but from what I saw the stock seemed to be well made--very solid.

It seems to be cut a little longer than most but being solid you can grind and cut it to fit.

The finish takes paint well. Mine has a somewhat rough texture and is sprayed not to be shinny. While it will never replace my "trap" guns I do like the set up and think that it enhances the 11-87. My 11-87 is used primary as a teaching gun for students to use.

Although my stock was a gift I believe that the cost is about $250.00. My experience with this product is that if I sold this gun and had another 11-87 target gun I would buy one without hesitation. If you need a high comb for a field gun I think that this would be a good option.

Respectfully,

I just bought one last week for 250 for my 1100 trap it is great feels good and glad to hear about the paint. I would with out a doubt buy another and Jack is a stand up guy. There is a shipping cost. Good luck Corey

As far as the "paint," I just bought cheap spray paint. A couple coats of primer, 3 coats of metal flake blue and a couple coats of clear. Total cost of the paint was less than $25.00 and I have enough left over to do another stock and forearm or maybe tag a bridge overpass.

No, it doesn't look as good as the expensive jobs but then again, I don't shoot that well either so.... With that said it does look nice and I am not ashamed of it by any stretch.

Lacking the smooth texture of my other guns it seems like my hands won't sweat quite as much.

Anyway, a quick, simple and economical job.

My son has an earlier model on his 11-87. Its been on that gun for about 4 years of salt water, mud, decoy bags, and unruley, over excited Labrador Retrievers.On a good day it goes pheasant hunting. The unit is like an anvil. Gets little maintenance and works great. I also have one on my back-up trap gun.
