    I recently purchased an older BT99 for a back up, I love the gun, however it's a regular Browning stock with a gracoil recoil reduction added onto it. My first thought was to cut the stock, but when I placed up to my gun, I shoot with, the cut would go into the comb.

    I am looking for some suggestions, change stock? I shoot with a golden clay that has the adjustable comb and gracoil. About a14" Lop.
    Thanks
    Deb

    Deb it does not hurt to have the rear of the cob cut off, it is done all the time, do what you have to do to get it to shoot for you.

    If it don't fit it won't hit.

    Browning really needs to stop making adjustable combs. They make them too long and it would look like crap if you cut into it for a shorter LOP.

    I've not looked at a BT99 stock, so I don't know if this applies or not. Just tossing it out.

    On an 1187 20ga that needed a very short stock, in addition to shortening the butt end, I recut the FRONT of the stock where it meets the receiver, moving the tenon back. This also moved the grip closer to the trigger, perfect for small hands (youth) but maybe not for an adult.

    you need to get over not wanting to cut the wood. If you plan on keeping it get it to fit you.
