    Can adding an adjustable butt plate cause your poi to change?

    If your beads still line up the same, I don't see how it could.

    If they don't thats a different story.

    If you added the buttplate without cutting the stock, it changed your lop (assuming you didn't change the pad thickness). Depending on how much drop there is in your stock, the poi could change a little due to a new position on the stock for your cheek.

    Stock dimensions are interrelated (they affect each other). As Ken says, adding length to the stock with an adjustable butt plate without somehow keeping the stock the same length will move the cheek back to a part of the comb that is lower. That can lower the eye relative to the rib and will lower the point of impact of the center of the pattern.

    If the recoil pad is moved down to allow a more upright head and neck, it can change the position of the cheek on the comb and that can also change the POI.

    If the pitch of the stock happens to be too little and the butt plate is rotated to fit the shoulder better, POI can change because of more accurate swings. It is indirect but causal.
