    Looks like you may have to cut the stock some! Try Jones Pad Adjusters. They are 1/4' while Gracoil is 3/8' = you save 1/8". Check your recoil pad, if it's 1" use a new, good quality 3/4' = you save 1/4". Total of 3/8" less off the wood. Then recheck your LOP, make sure you are measuring correctly, might help. Jeff

    I had good luck with the 100 Straight Adjuster. It is adjustable thru the pad and comes with a "T" handled allen wrench to do it. It also has a friction pad between the two pieces to hold your adjustment solid.

    I like the Jones myself, it's slim and stays put. But you gotta take off the pad to adjust it. There are other brands that can be adjusted without taking off the pad. Others can suggest some.

    100 straight is an excellent value; maybe even best for the money. I use it on my 682.

    Problem with 100 straight is that to move the pad side-to-side more than about 1/16" the pad needs to be removed or a long horizontal hole cut in it for the allen wrench to fit into; a single 1/4" hole won't work.

    The big locking screw under the pad is stationary; the screw can be tightened or loosened only when the hole in the pad is directly over the hex in the screw. That limits the pad to almost no side-to-side movement.
