I do a bunch of combs for Krieghoff and many other dealers and manufacturers, after the stock has been built. I do not use the "Krieghoff Cut". This particular cut is done while the stock is unfinished using circle saws on 3 seperate angles. Almost impossible to put a round blade on a finished stock without splinters and fragmentation. Factory cuts them long before they are even sanded. I dont know anyone who duplicates this cut after stock is finished. I dont, Tron dont, Dave Berlet dont, Rod dont, Pylinski dont, Heeg dont, Speedbump dont, and unless Kolar has changed their standard cut, they dont either. Krieghoff comb option is 500.00. All the above mentioned wood guys are charging half that or a little less. No decreased value in having any one of us do it, provided you recieve a quality job. Any of the above will give you a good quality job. Todd
Ernest Marlette has done numerous exact Krieghoff cuts on K-80 stocks for me, both on new and used guns. They have all come back exact and perfect, the only way I can tell it from a factory comb is the excellent stainless steel mounting posts and hardware he uses, which is second to none.
I assure you, that while any adjustable comb may work for your shooting needs on a Krieghoff, having the unique Krieghoff cut on your gun at time of resale will definately make a difference, its usually the first thing a knowledgable buyer asks or notices when showing interest in buying your gun. Especially if its a factory stock.
The only two places I have ever seen that do the Krieghoff cut right are Ernest Marlette and Krieghoff International.
Marlette did a adj. comb, Krieghoff cut on my Schilling Scroll sporting clay gun last year. The wood is some of the best looking I have ever seen on a Krieghoff and I wanted to keep it original. He did a mastereful job. J.D.
