    It,s a bit of a job to get them on right . Very hard to grind or sand . I would,t put one on your gun for $175.00 but I did put one on mine .

    Monty, I had one installed on my BT-100 and I am glad I did. If you don't have the angle guide and a vertical type belt sander do not try to install one yourself. Pay a good smith to install one for you. It is harder than it looks, and after its ground down it then has to be polished to a nice shiny finish. I would try a local man if you can find one and try to save on shipping, or a vendor at one of your big shoots at your local club when they come though. You can have them grind only the part that screws to your stock and leave the the back one full size so you can just bolt on a Kick-ezz without haveing to grind that as well. I have the 2 screw type Jones adj. butt plate and after 2 years it has not slipped once and is holding up great. I do recomend one to anyone out there. I know of a few shooters who had problems with the one screw type pad moving on them after a year or two. Good Luck with your adj. Butt Plate, its worth the investment. Break-em all. Jeff

    Romie, every gun is different, even between the same model. I could grind one for a 391 to fit, and it wouldn't fit perfectly (may be close) to another 391. Depending on which kit is used (some are as thick as 1/2" plus), that much would have to be cut from the stock, or added to the length of pull. Beretta auto stocks are a bit sloppy looking if you just bolt a kit on (they are beveled somewhat at the end and don't fit the plate flat).

    A hanging jig is a must to get the correct toe and heal angle. SURE, you could do it yourself....just be careful, let me know if you need a hand.

    Thanks Hap, but the Gypsie life style isn't for me (that's a joke). The local Sporting shooters, and some of the Trap crowd keep me plenty busy. Kind of a hobby that morphed into a business over the years. It's just like with the car biz...when my first car broke down, I didn't really have any money to fix it, so I had to figure it out myself....then, a buddies car broke down and his brothers...then the next thing you knew, I was in the car repair business! LOL. Funny how it works I guess.

    Tron, Generally the top of the pad is rounded for sporting clays, why do you have it rounded at the bottom and the top of the pad sticking out? Won't this catch on your shirt? I must be missing something. Glenn

    Glen, the guy who owns that gun is a local Master class shooter. That's the type of pad that he likes...yeah, I know what you mean, but that's what he wants.

    I like the Jones adjuster. They are not very thick and that makes them easy to shape.

    Normally I just read but this one is killing me. Pay a guy $100 in labor to put a butt pad on give me a break. Mine may not be the worlds best but nobody's ever looked at one of mine and laughed.

    If you have no access to a grinder and wet sandpaper in 600,1200 and 3000. The knowledge of how to use both of these thing's.
    Then I would say sure pay the guy $100 in labor to do the job. Let's not forget the shipping charges and Ins charges. That butt pad better get me some 25's.
    If you do have these things then put your talents to the test. And use the extra hundred for shells.

    There is one exception to this if your gun cost more then most peoples car
    then it should be required to have all work done by gunsmith. Just my thought.

    trapman69, I agree. By the way when I saw the name at the end of your post I had to do a double take.

    Well you're in luck Mr. Ducks because right now I've got a special going on. Tire rotation, oil change and your choice of Kickeez pad ground to fit for the low low price of $69.95

    Tron has done all of my gun work, not just the stocks but shell deflectors and bolt closers as well.

    Here is some of his work... Shell deflector on my son's Beretta 390. The shells just drop at his feet.

    I have more pics of other gun work but you get the idea. Turn around time is quick and his prices are reasonable. The big plus is he cares about his work and customer satisfaction.

    He will get all my needed gun work.

    Also, if you are in So-Cal, give George W. Clark a call. His adjustable butt plates are the best, the most adjustable. He is quite fair. Call 323-721-3848. Buck-Shot Engineering.
