View Full Version : Synthetic or wooden stock on shotgun?
October 21, 1999, 12:15 PM
I've always thought that a synthetic shotgun stock is more durable and rugged. But I spoke to Robar this morning, and they told me that a wooden stock (coated with their Polymax finish) is more durable and stronger than synthetic. Is this true?

Well, I don't necessarily know about wood stocks being stronger, but IMHO, they absorb the recoil better, are easier to modify or shorten if you need to.

What's wrong with the one on the weapon? I've used pre WWI shotguns whose stocks were in fine shape,after decades of use.
Even Correctional Weapons, used and abused by a variety of quasi-qualified people rarely have a need to replace the stock.
If the stock comes close to fitting you,and aids in absorbing recoil sufficiently, what's the point.

I have to agree with Dave McC,he took the words out of my mouth!
