Phil Simms does such nice work

Phil Simms recently made a ProSoft stock for my Kolar Elite. Thought you all might like to see it.

The gold inlays were done by Bill Mains in January 2012.

Beretta687EELL: Bill I have a dilemma. I'm shooting the Perazzi TM1L I got pretty well. The Kolar is heavier, but I'll take it out this weekend and give it a 'shot'. <:)

hera200: I will not speak for Phil. I picked upgraded wood, checkering etc. Talk to Phll at one of the major shoots or the Grand.

ZGUN, I think you're about 2k too high. Stock only:$3200, matching forend:$450, pad adjuster:$150, wood upgrade:per quote, in shop fitting fee:$300, upgrade checkering:$250-$400. These prices are from his brochure last summer. Joe

bjk1972:

Hadn't thought of it that way. You're so right. The gun honestly looks classy enough to be on a cover.

I had this stock made because I wanted a recoil reducer and love the look of beautiful wood on a shotgun.

You're right. The glossy finish is flawless. Now, it's up to me to keep it that way. Maybe no gun racks for this baby.

My Seitz is never in a gun rack. It will get damaged sooner or later. It's either in my hands or in my truck.

Adios, Dirk

Just a quick note--- my son Nate does all our finish work now so he deserves all the credit. Additionally it has been our pleasure to help all the shooters who have used our services these past years. In 2012 there were eight shooters who made the All-American team for the first time using our new patented recoil system. Congratulations to all of them. Thank you again!

Matching forend: $450

Pad adjuster: $150

Wood upgrade: per quote

PS My wood was an upgrade.

Sweet, Gene.

If it soften's the recoil and lets you shoot your game without pain, it's priceless. Many have told me that Phil's system is awesome, and your wood is beautiful.

Good for you!!!

Finally had a chance to shoot 100 targets tonight with the ProSoft stock. I have to say that it is everything you could want in a recoil reducer. My shoulder hardly felt tired after shooting. Plus it looks great.

Like you say, it sure looks better seeing all wood, instead of metal on the end of the stock, with other recoil reducing apparatuses. I know there is a price difference, but you also have a custom stock, instead of an add-on. Very nice work!
