Ok before anyone says any things my guns are 28/30" barrels and are 100cm+

Due to my short sticky stance I tend to shoulder the shotguns more in the space between the shoulder and arm. This tends to lead to bruising after a session it also causes me to twist the shotgun.

This is even the case with when removing the rubber but stock from a synethic stock Adler.

I'm looking to remove 1-2" from each stock.

Is it as simple as marking getting stock level cutting then attaching but pad then sanding till level again. Will of course tape stock ect.

The guns are a Adler and Nikko shadow (Winchester 101 with better timber) so both $1000~ guns.

yep,......pretty much.
but,.......cut it 1/4 inch longer than your first cut, in case you don't quite get the cut nice and level/square everywhere, then at least you have enough stock left there to cut it again, with a corrected angle etc.

Make sure you make your cut parallel to the end of the butt (with pad removed) so you do not alter the pitch of the stock.

This can be difficult if the back of the stock is curved, not straight.

Altering the pitch can make the gun uncomfortable to shoot by accentuating recoil.

This post may be fact or opinion, it is up to you to decide which.

I guess this is why people pay to get a proper shotgun fitting done :whistle:

But then I guess its a bit like getting golf clubs fitted!

You can spend a lot of money on getting those fitted to but it may not help you shoot any better scores B)

You only have to watch an old Bradman tape to see ability out ways equipment used.

And finish the front end job with a f@#!en angle grinder or a cut off wheel.

When one door closes sometimes it's better to put a chair up against it. Just in case the wankers get back in!.
