The glacier finally thawed at the range so I took the re-stocked 995/TS up to try it out this morning. Holy cheek slap batman. Kinda uncomfortable. The old stock did not slap me. So looks like the pad from brass stacker or the cut out mouse pad or the para cord thing will be getting installed. The NASA launch pad spring setup on the butt does cool the recoil a bit. I put 70 rds of my 124gr loads out the pipe without any probs. I kinda wish I would have kept track of how many rounds I have fired through it since I got it in 2001. A bazillion at least. Oh , and with not o n e problem. HP builds good stuff !
