Ok, the Mossberg website states that the shim kit is to adjust drop and cast. . . should there be cast adjustments with it, or do you have to make them with the supplied kit?

I'm pretty sure that the stock shim kit only adjusts stock drop. I have a 935 and I don't recall any cast spacers, but I did add a 1/4" drop spacer to mine. I think cast adjustments are more for the upper crust custom guns and such, but a good smith may be able to fab some shims up for a Mossy....may look at you kinda funny, though! :lol:

Take one of the "drop" spacers and cut it in half...

Intall it on the side that you need the cast on and you should be all set.

Make sure you tighten the stock VERY tight, I used the shim kit on my 535 pump and they worked themselves loose because I didn't tighten the stock enough....

Reason for Edit:....lots of typos....

Ok, thanks. . .I took a dremel tool as the advice of the guy at Gander. . .he said that is what he did with his Benelli. . .apparently they only come with the drop/rise as well and you have to play with the spacers to get cast. . . I just wanted to make sure there wasn't a supplied cast spacer. . .and yes, I tightened it very tight!!

Also, should I do anything with the spacer in the stock that goes along with the drop spacer. . . dremel it out some?

Well, just a quick update. . . I took the Dremel to it even more and pretty much just left on the far right side of the drop spacer and then tightened it down as much at I could. I then eyed it and it seemed like it was cast on. . .and it was. I shouldered it and it felt even better than before. Since it turned out so well, I grabbed the 935, took the Limbsaver off it (after finally finding the screw in the pad, since the holes are in the wrong area on the one) . . .now the 935 is also set up with some nice cast on as well. . . we'll see if it helps once hunting season gets here. . . I've never had a shotgun cast for lefties.
