    Sportshot......a Kickeez -10 size pad (any series) will add about 3/8" . Use your white factoy spacer with it for a little more. If you use your factory screws, you can use the existing screw holes in your stock.

    No one that really knows what he's doing sands a pad on the stock!!! There are MANY better(and safer!) ways to do it. Most stocksmiths you see on here will have the pads in stock and will install them for you for a reasonable price.

    chemclayn Just to make it very clear. The magazine tube on your sx-1 is easily replaceable. It is not like an 1100 that is welded in place. It just screws into the reciever. If the chrome is flaking off you can indeed turn the tube around as the threads are the same on both ends. If you don't want to mess with that I would buy an Stainless Steel magazine tube and be done with it. Once you have the stainless steel tube installed you will not need to replace it again. Call Wrights in Illinois as they have them in stock. I don't know the price but I am pretty sure they are less then 50.00 dollars. Jeff P/S Wrights number is 618-357-8933

    Only on guns I have purchased Charlie. I usally put a new pin only when they break but on new guns I will often replace most of the springs as well as the firing pin and the bolt buffer. I have guns with the stainless steel magazine tube but I really don't use them very often. The original is good for lots of shooting if you keep it clean. As has been said, if it becomes pitted you can turn it around and use the other end as long as it isn't too badly pitted. It all depends on how much time you want to spend cleaning your gun. A STAINLESSS steel mag tube will take a whole bunch of abuse. Jeff

    still alittle confused as to when the chrome tube needs turned. mine's not flaking just looking somewhat dull and not as smooth. cycling is fine. i get somewhat obsessive -compulsive
