This was a surprise gift I made for my dad . It is a Stok Lok invented and patented by Hall of Fame Trapshooter Pat McCarthy (Ohio). Inside the stock are a series of pistons and springs that do not compress until fired and then travel up to 1” for recoil reduction.

Have to ask, what type of wood this is? Very beautiful grain and figure in it what ever it is. Very nice job on the gun. I would say he is almost afraid to use it now.

Love the wood! Used to shoot competitive trap many years ago. He will like the reduced recoil and the care that went into the stock.

May be the nicest stock I’ve ever seen. And the reduced recoil is a bonus!

GREAT JOB!

Had to check out that Stok Lok, not inexpensive, but definitely worth it for a trap shooter. Beautiful looking
stock, your dad will be thanking you every time he shoots. Thank you for sharing.
