    Yep, stock doctor. He fitted my Miroku U/O a few years back - big improvement.

    To be honest, a lot of the stocks nowadays have no cast in them what so ever so they aren't really right or left handed so to speak. An example would be the left handed semis-it only the operationals like ejection port etc that's left handed. The stock is straight as. Its only the height that you can play with.
    A good friend is a kak hander. He shot with a r/h under/over and lefty Remington auto. I even used the semi. Neither of us could blame any missing on the stock fit. If the eye comes up right, she's all good and we hit our fair share of targets with them.
    In saying that if you have access to a good stock fitting type person go for it

    I didnt have a bias either way about stock-fit on shotguns, until I accidentlly bought a Baikal U/O,that is my exact LOP, and rear-stock is canted for a r/h shooter. It points great, and has no recoil compared with every other 12g I've ever owned. It's an older model,twin-triggers, tiger-stripe-grain walnut, and really nicely made, contrary to all the crap comments I've heard about them. Maybe I just got lucky ? Stock-fit works for me..

    Well everybody is built differently, body, eyes, left handed right handed.
    Before I left NZ I new nothing about stock fitting. When I started shooting in the uk I did some reading and they all bang on over here about getting your stock fitted. So I thought hey why not! When in Rome
    First had my shotgun that I had imported form NZ fitted. I went from being an ok shot, 50% on a clay ground to 75% according to my score cards and a vast improvement in my live game shooting. I’m also hunting less than in NZ where I’d be out most evenings on Dads farm to once a month here.
    So judging by my experience id have all shotguns fitted professional. It’s a shame that I never new about this from the start of my hunting as I’d have been far more successful and would have enjoyed it a lot more.
    This being a Christmas present for my Dad who has never had a gun fit hopefully he’ll go from his usual battling performance to a day where he can shoot his share with blaming the gun. I’m sure he’ll come up with other excuses
    csmiffy and rewa like this.
