    I have two different pitch spacers with my PFS. Now, I am not using either of them but I do like to experiment.

    The real beauty of the PFS is the ability to set it up as YOU need it! Jake

    I use a tapered spacer that Vern Brown included when he fitted the stock to me. Without the spacer I was not getting maximum contact on my shoulder.

    To add more fuel to the fire, "no" pitch seems to be somewhat common on many guns, which is a mistake, in my opinion. I have found that at least an inch or two of pitch is necessary to fit the majority of shooters who use the correct gun mount with the butt in the shoulder pocket and the heel of the stock even with the top of the shoulder.

    The "correct" ("best" might be a better word to use) pitch can vary depending on where on the shoulder the gun is mounted, the presence or absense of cast- at-the-toe on the stock and the amount, if any, forward lean that used by the shooter.

    As Doug H mentioned, the correct pitch is necessary to give the recoil pad the greatest surface contact with the shoulder to spread the rearward recoil force over the greatest possible area of the pad. "Pushed" is better than "poked".

    When there is inadequate pitch, the bottom toe of the pad sticks out too far. This increases barrel rise during recoil, and when excessive, can raise a gun's POI. It is also especially uncomfortable for women.
