    Jones recoil pad adj.

    Has anyone tried one of those do-it-yourself Jones pad adjusters I've seen in some magazines? The add state's "grind 1/16 inch off the stock plate, add a pad and it's ready to go". What is the removal of 1/16" accomplishing? I don't see how doing this makes it fit properly.

    I would have thought they are trying to say doing that will mean you are not adding anymore length to your present set up?

    Fishguts,

    The adjuster was designed so that the metal you need to grind to make it fit your specific stock is thinner than the other plates. This decreases the grinding time and makes it easier for someone to complete the task at home. I just had one put on last week.

    If you don't like grinding, try to find a thinner replacement pad (if possible). There's quite a variety out there.

    The Jones stock adjuster is worth the price, and well made. Steel thread inserts, and lots of adjustment in most any direction. Good luck.
