    What is the effect of too much toe out on gun fit? Will an adjustable butt plate cure this problem ?

    It can make the gun uncomfortable to shoot, difficult to mount consistently and can make it harder to stay in the gun. Most adjustable butt plates ado allow some rotation of the pad.

    As far as I can tell, if you have too much toe out (and assuming you are right handed) you will either mount the pad correctly and then have the gun canted to the right or will keep the gun upright and have the pad extending out of your should pocket onto your shoulder/arm.

    Best adjustable butt pad assemblies I know of are:

    100straight

    http://www.100straight.com/products/padadjust.htm

    Country Gentlman's Nelson pad hardware

    http://www.gunfitter.com/padfs.htm

    I have the 100straight on my K80 and am very satisfied. Thin plates so you don't have to cut as much wood or add too much weight the butt stock and good hardened steel where its needed. Easily adjustable, it's just a plain good product.

    I have the Nelson on a Kolar....I very much like the Nelsons, think they are great at what they do, and their hardware is very good. Only functional difference is thicker (1/4" thereabouts) plates.

    Don't forget Ken Rucker at Speedbump Stock Works. I have two of his and they are as good as it gets. I also have had 100 straight and Nelson. Roy

    You'll be easy to spot walking down the trapline with a noticeable shimmy
