Hey All,

Now that we're free to add goodies I'm thinking about getting a pistol grip stock for my M1S90.

However, the question I have is: Does the PG stock really improve the handling performance of the shotgun?

Thanks for your feedback.

That depends on you. I tend to prefer the standard stock design because it handles a bit faster for me, but that might also be a reflection of decades of using such stocks on, mostly, Remmy 870's. I have two Benellis...a pre and a post ban, and have a pistol grip mounted on the preban gun. I will admit that for "game" shooting, the pistol grip does let me cut my times down a bit, and it will also allow one handed operation in a pinch, although I am not so sure if the gun would function as it should with one hand...never tried it and I don't want to!

My biggest complaint with both stocks is their length...too long. I am not ready to spend a bunch of bucks to have either professionally cut down, but one of these days me and Mr. Jack Daniels just may decide to try it ourselves!

I prefer PG stock because it is just more natural to me, since Benelli M1 recoils a bit too.

Do you know any Benelli specialists that will cut down these stocks?

Not anyone specifically, but I know a couple of guys who have had local 'smiths do it for them...going rate seems to be around $100 or a bit less. I have enough tools that I can most likely get it done myself for just my time if I can get the gumption to start the project...thus the Jack Daniels..."gumption medicine" Hahah!

I'm not concerned with the length at all - I ahd to make my stock longer. I added a shim and a short recoil pad which makes it just about the perfect length for me.

Any other opinions on the pistol grip stock VS. the standard?

I personally find pistol grip stocks a little more comfortable, WHEN they are well made, like they are in the Benelli M1/M3 (mine is the M3). I like the big comfortable rubber grip. PGs just seem to put a little less strain on my wrist; they are also part of the reason I like ARs and AKs over Mini 14s (aside from obvious differences). They just mount a little more naturally for me than "normal" rifle stocks. That being said, I've never had a problem with my Remington 870 or regular stocks like on Minis. I just lean to the PG when given an option.
