An inch is a lot to lengthen a stock. How did you conclude that your stock needs the extra length?
Fair question. The rangemaster was looking at me shoot and pointed out that my nose is basically touching my right thumb when I shoot. Apparently there is supposed to be some space there. He suggested I might need an extra 1.5 inches and brought over the old guy who works on stocks and he thought I needed more like an extra inch, but wasnt sure what to do with the hollow mosberg stock. He suggested that I try online and see if mossberg made some sort of spacer to lengthen the stock.
The rangemaster had me try one of his guns with a 15 inch lop, and it felt a lot better (I broke a lot more birds too, but that probably has as much to do with gun quality as the sizing).
Anyway, I was really hoping that there was some sort of spacer system I could buy for this, it must be a somewhat common problem, as I'm not outrageously tall (6'2"). Three feathers, thanks for your story about making your own spacer, I was hoping there was a simpler solution, as I'm not much of a woodworker.
thanks again for any advice!
