    I have a Browning BT99. The senior shooters at my club claim the stock is too long for me and needs to be shortened. The screw which secures the adj.comb is accessed through the recoil pad with an allen wrench. The screw projects beyond the wood of the stock. My question is: How do you deal with the screw when shortening the stock? Is there a simple solution to this? Any advice appreiated. Dave Hunt

    Dave, You could buy another buttstock and alter it, leaving the original alone.

    The best advice I can give is have the factory adjustable comb hardware swapped out for some good aftermarket hardware. I know of no one that has had good luck with the factory Browning hardware.

    You will be able to get the stock shortened without any further issues.

    I would suggest a trip to a reputable fitter before making any permanent changes.

    You can shorten the adjusting bolt and cut a slot in it for a flat screw driver. I've done many of them that way.

    My XT had the same problem when replacing the origional pad to a jones through the stock adjustable pad.

    I removed the screw, cut to length and cut a new screwdriver slot. works great.
