    Steve if the al2 was hitting where you wanted it. The first step would be to take measurements from that set up and configure your new stock to match. That should get you back to familiar territory and from there you can make small adjustments to get things exactly the way you like. A word of advice make small changes and only 1 at a time until you get a chance to test your change on targets. Then if need be move on to your next change or go back to where you were. That way it is easier to undo a wrong change.

    Hello Senior Smoke,

    The best procdure to set up this adjustable stock on your beretta al2
    is ship it to me with several cases of shells.

    Only joking, do as chip suggested and only one at a time.

    Start at home. Get the stock so the comb height feels good and the cast off so that the sights are aligned. Make sure the comb is either level or slightly tipped forward. Then shoot the thing on handicap until you get it right. It can take several thousand registered birds to make sure everything is fine tuned. Also, be aware that if it fits great with heavy cloths on, it might not fit so good when we can finally dress like humans.

    1. Take a trip to the patterning board. From 13 yards shoot enough shells to ensure that the gun shoots straight from left to right.
    2. Next set the POI height to what you like. Start at 13 yards and finnish at 40 yards.
    3. Next go to the trap field and set the machine on straight aways from sta. 3.
    And shoot some targets inorder to fine tune the POI. HMB

    i am left handed and i placed the adjustable stock on my gun. the stock has natural left hand cast so i lucked out. the stock is all the way down and i see the exact same sight picture as my regular stock. the guy who sold me the stock sent me spacers 1/32 each in height. the stock is straight. you mention straight or slightly tipped forward?? why tipped forward, i'm curious? also alot of people say to pattern from 13 yards, why?
