    My new to me trap gun is hurting my cheeck. After a 100 singles my cheeck starts to hurt, by the end of the day there is a red mark. The stock has a fully adjustible gracoil. I am afraid to adjust it because I am shooting some of my highest scores ever,went from mid eighties, to low ninties. I can't let this thing keep beating me up like this. Any sggestions would be appreciated.

    Pitch needs to go down; my bt 99 with RAD was doing the same thing to me. I put one washer on the top pad screw and it went away.

    My BT was doing the same thing. It's the pitch. I cut my 8 degrees from what it was at. Problem went away. Changing the pitch did not affect my point of impact, and with your gra coil you should be able to maintain your lop.

    I have heard of this being done before.

    How do you determine how many degrees the washer will change the pitch?

    You have the right amount of pitch when the top and the bottom of your recoil pad contact the shoulder pocket at the same time.

    Or, when it stops slapping you around..

    Use thin washers, try cartridge box thickness...
