Gun Fitting in New Brunswick Canada

Postby grapenuts » Thu Apr 19, 2012 9:36 am

Hey folks. Does anyone know of a place to get a shotgun fitted here in New Brunswick? I've asked around and googled it...no luck. Seems to be an uncommon thing in these parts.

Its a Browning Citori White Lightning. I'm 6'2" and having a hard time getting it up to my cheek when I shoulder it. I'm routinely shooting over top of the targets. I love this shotgun(my girlfriend bought it for my birthday) and I'd really like to be more consistant with it.

By not having a Stock fitter close by , it could get pricey ( time,travel ) . I would ,buy a Jones adjustable pad and set-it up
so the gun mounts higher , hope this helps you out .

Klaus and his wife Heidi Marie Hiptmayer run the Austrian Gun works in Eastman Quebec. If you are serious about the proper fit etc then I highly recommend them. You can see examples of their craftsmanship in the Gun Digest, ivory and gold inlays and superb stock work. I had them remodel one of my rifle stocks and then later to supply a set of stocks. Highly recommended, these folks are professionals. Lost in NB. LOL
