The real reason for poor gun fit is the gun manufactures use a standard configuration for an average sized person. If your not 5'8 to10" high, about 185#s, you will not be able to go to a dealer and find or try guns that fit. Or fit best as shooters advise unaware buyers when looking for a gun. The real advise is buy a gun and make it fit. You will easily spend 500 bucks or more to get a close or what I call a field gun fit.

So..... you budget 2 grand for the used trap gun and 500 for the stock smithy to get an acceptable gun fit. It will be a great benefit for you to also study gun fitting and become somewhat aware of the subject. Lastly.... don't be afraid to cut the beautiful stock.


Or have the smith install an adjustable system for you. This way, if you gain/lose weight, you can adjust it yourself?
