    Our 16 year old daughter is about 4'11" - 5'0" weighing in at a hefty 90-95 lbs and I am looking for some general stock dimensions as a starting point.

    What would be a common LOP and drop at comb for someone of this size?

    I cut a stock short enough that the kid can hold the gun and have reasonable good form. Then get a wood rasp and sand paper and shoot 16 yds. from a pattern plate. Don't do too much at a time. Plan on it taking maybe a dozen times. Larry

    Have found the grip needs to be moved foward closer to the trigger, small frame and small hands. Ronnie

    Like Confederate said, don't be afraid to cut, rasp and bondo. It's necessary.

    Personally, the Wenig Ladies version of the twisted sister is where I'd start.

    Gun fit is critical - and MORE critical for kids.
