Shortening stock

Post by semtav » Mon Oct 11, 2021 8:21 pm

Kirk,
Do you shorten stocks?
I bought this rifle used some years ago and was never comfortable shooting it. Always felt like I was "reaching" for the trigger.
It wasn't until my new rifle arrived that I figured out why.
At first I figured it wasn't feasible until I found out the buttplate is also extra long.
thanks
Brian

Damn, looks like a boat paddle, must have been ordered with longer pull.
Anyways, we should be able to shorten it.

Kirk,

Wound up selling it to a neighbor, so he may show up at your doorstep one of these days to get it shortened.

Just tell him to mount a heal sight on it and shoot it in the spine position.
The length is just right for that. :D
