    Need a wood stock shortened and new recoil pad fitted on a 870. Not really sure I want to try and fit a pad myself, looking for a quality job, decent price and reasonable turnaround. I'm in Arlington but could ship it pretty much anywhere. Lived with too many guns too long for my stubby little arms, want to get one to fit right.

    Thanks,
    MStarmer

    limbsaver and kickeeze are crap, get a pachmeyer decelerator, or buy a 20gauge.

    Huh? Not sure what this has to do with shortening a stock

    I would travel over to Kesselrings? and ask them. They seem to be a big shotgun store. I would guess they have a local 'smith that could help you out.

    If you just add the recoil pad to the stock, you make it that much longer. In order to keep your LOP (length of pull) the stock needs to be cut down the same thickness as the pad you are installing. A kids first shotgun should be cut to accommodate their shorter LOP.

    Thanks for the replies but I ended up taking care of it myself.
