In general, yes. My father got one and it completely eliminated his cheek pain. But a well fitted stock will do the same generally. Stock lock or not, it has to fit. If you get a stocklock or a prosoft, they can (and will) fit you too.Does the Stock Lock system reduce recoil to the face? I have changed the pitch, changed LOP and installed a soft top, but nothing works. I don't want to shoot reduced loads. Any feedback would be appreciated.
what type of shotgun and shells are you using. It would help the forum members give you more input. More than likely there is a forum member who has had a similar issue with the make and model shotgun you have.Does the Stock Lock system reduce recoil to the face?

Thank you for all your replies. I have a Kolar TA Max Hi combo. I have added 1/4" neg. pitch. It helped some, but still uncomfortable. I had Kolar add the soft top. Again, it helps, but still uncomfortable. If I shoot 100 Winchester Super Target in light 8 or 7 1/2, I have a sore cheekbone.This Video will solve your Check Slap problem !!!
I had Todd Nelson fit my gun. It was the best money I spent and waited way too long to do it. He’s pretty reasonable and I am sure he could figure your situation out . There are some guns that just won’t work for some body types and all the fitting in the world won’t fix it. Todd will be able to tell you if that’s the case. He will also be able to tell you what type of gun would be a better match for your build .Jerry Nelson (AKA Country Gentleman) was a great guy to have fit a gun stock. Jerry always said,"if it does not fit you, it will hit you". Jerry is gone from us now, but his son Todd who worked with his dad has taken over the business. GENERALLY, face slap is caused by incorrect pitch. Dave Berlet has a very good U TUBE out there on pitch. Check that out.
