    WTB U/O shotgun

    Looking for a shotgun. Preferably a 20g Yildez. As a LH shooter I have tried a couple of stocks and the Yildez is a good fit having no cast.
    Anyone have something gathering dust they want to part with?

    Yes. The cast is all wrong for a lefty

    I have a 12g Yildez if you're keen. It has under about 50 shells through it because I just haven't had the time to use it. I am heading to Napier in the weekend and will be there for a few days so you're welcome to have a look and see if the feel is good

    When I was a kid I remember my Dad steaming lengths of wood to bend around the transom of a boat he was building . Could you bend a gun stock , ( my wood working skills are limited to manufacturing custom made firewood )

    Will send you a PM. Sounds like what I am after. I'm not in Napier this weekend unfortunately. Wedding in Tauranga to attend.

    Odd. I've picked up 3 of the exact same gun and all were straight as a die.

    Yes but it would be best to send it to a pro. A friend had a Berretta done recently. Soaked in warm linseed oil IIRC then bent? It was done by a chap in Wellington. Berretta NZ advised it was not possible and quoted a ridiculous price for a new stock.

    Yep, I'd definitely want to see it before buying. I recall Ryens being straight, another mates 2 being cast.

    I should have bought his one when I had the chance.

    Stock bending/fitting Mec Cameron in Mana does it, UK trained and a bit of an skb specialist made my 30 yo one pretty much like new.

    Miroku's are typically cast neutral. A mate who is a lefty uses a factory Miroku Mk10 without any problems. I had my 20G adjusted for a little more cast-off.
