If the boy ever gets sprung off the fire line we all have swan tags.
I feel good with the steady grip stock on the Stoeger.
BUT I also feel a little more recoil releaf would help and I think the stock is a bit to long for my ancient smallish body. I was in the shop yesterday in-between Honey do's thinking, never a good thing.
I took out the stock that came with the shotgun, it is the same length and drop as the replacement, I chopped off a half inch. Being composite (plastic) It cut through the tubes that the screws go into.
I had to drill them deeper and run the but screws in deeper, got it.
The but pad that came with the steady stock is harder solid rubber that would work great on my truck for tires, but is the right size and shape for both stocks. By making the stock shorter it also made the dimensions of the butt area different , smaller and narrower. Some dermal work on the bottom and angle grinder on the out side and ,Dang, I have one the fits very nicely. Then to the computer.
I got the PDF size and shape template from Limbsaver. Carful caliper work and fitting to the template I found that it just right if the template is precise. It is a pad for a "Handy rifle", or H&H shotgun.
Now to find one, you know how gun parts are right now, very scares. I did and it was about half the price as most the limbsaver at $27 bucks free freight. BUT it was the only one left, I ordered it at once , I hope I got it. I will not alter the steady stock till I have the pad in hand, that way I CAN still use the shotty, If need be.
I'll put up pics with a dead trumpeter swan as soon as it all comes together.

IBD Yes I will.
You are aware how being short in the arms can affect shooting a shotgun. The steady stock and pad now is right at the end of my reach with out heave winter jackets and stuff.
The limbsaver tend to be a little thicker and much stickier then a normal rubber one, making the problem worse.
The fact is I may go with 5/8 inch rather then 1/2".
I'll see when I put the calipers on the new pad. The more I take off the smaller the butt area gets.
BUT Yes I will alter the one that is on it now the steady stock.
