    My 14 year old saved up his grass cutting money and bought an 1100. The stock was to big so we tried a youth field model but he had trouble keeping his head down so I found a Monte Carlo off of a 870 but we need to get it down to about 13 ½” LOP. I was planning to cut it down and put a new pad on it but I need some advice before I butcher the stock.

    How should I cut the stock? I was thinking about using my band saw but I guess I would need to build some sort of jig. Any suggestions?

    I can’t seem to find a stock recoil pad with the small footprint (4-3/8” x 1-9/16”) that I would need. Has anyone sanded one down? If so how did you do it, how did it turn out, and what brand/model did you use?

    Thanks for any and all help, all suggestions humbly excepted.

    Roger

    Roger,

    I had a similar problem and my boyfriend took the stock to Gander Mountain. There they shortened the stock and put on a Pachmeyer recoil pad for about $55 (plus the pad, about $80 total) was totally worth it and I have the piece he removed in case the stock needs to be restored. If you live near a Gander, they did a really good job.

    There is a shortened 1100 stock with Kickeze pad for sale on the WWW.ShootPITA/Classified web at this time. Might save you some time and money. Good luck.
