    This is what you do when you are over 7 feet tall!
    The pad adjuster was not for fit but to get the block 3/8 longer. He wanted that block.

    Did you or who did the duplication work? Thats awesome to see some of the exstremes of fitting problems. I think if you posted some pics with a 5'10" shooter holding that gun and that 7 foot gent holding a "normal" stocked gun The differences would really shine.

    Joe,

    How large was the brick you had to tie to the barrels to balance the gun with that stock?

    There's a duplicator in the trailer. Matt asked me if I could have it done by Friday on Tuesday. I told him I would have about 40 hours minimum in it. He said get to work you have 72 hours. We've been great friends ever since.

    Had to take some wood out of the inside but it wasn't too bad 1.730 kg 32" barrels.

    Around 16 7/8 inches

    Ps I got it all done except the checkering on the buttstock by friday.

    3200 The guy with the 17 5/8 pull was his stock a custom stock or just lengthened? How long were his arms?

    The Big guy is former NBA STAR MATT GEIGER.
