Found a gun that fits perfect

At least it seems to fit perfect and how it shoots could be something else.

It's a Browning Citori XS .410 with a Morgan Pad. The weird thing is it's a left hand gun and I am a righty.

One way to tell - shoot a round and see how you do

The owner is pretty friendly and maybe I will ask him to let me shoot it. Of course now I am getting fit to my right hand XS Skeet but it would be interesting to find out that a left handed gun fits me more naturally.

I don't think our friend, TKM, really has a .410 benchmark. As you know, going from 12-ga to .410-bore can be a rude awakening.

You are right there, Zippy, A .410 is far in the future for me. Only today I got to plugging so so with 7/8 ouncers in my 12 gauge XS Skeet. (I had shot them for a few months a while back in the 870 but given up on them when I got the Browning.) I would be curious to try his .410 just to see if I can hit the barn door with it.

boy, the Browning XS Skeet is a terrific gun. And, the 20 gauge with 30" barrels is just hands-down fantastic...

TKM, if you feel the .410's stock is a great fit, may I suggest that you get a custom stock dimension chart, some tools (straight edge, square, protractor, scaleā€¦), measure that stock and fill in the all blanks. Then compare the measurements to your stock with an eye to seeing what seems to be the biggest difference/s.

Maybe, Zippy. The think is that my XS Skeet fits me pretty well, now. I don't know what I did to accomodate it. Maybe I slowly strectched some muscles or ligaments.
