I am looking for a shorter Lop on my Stoeger m3000. I am thinking of removing the stock Butt pad and using the slip on Limbsaver airtech with .5 LOP. i think the small medium will work. What I am wondering is will the open end of the synthetic stock cause a problem.
I don't want to cut the stock and I need about 14 inch LOP. Currently with L50 shim at about 14.5.
What are you M3000 owners using?

You guys please pardon my ignorance concerning synthetic stocks ( mostly a wood guy ) but if you take off the stock butt pad, it would leave an open hole at the end of the stock? The stock is hollow?

That is correct. If you look at the limbsaver slip on Airtech butt pad there are round pockets that look like they are designed to fit against a solid object like a wood stock. The synthetic stocks are hollow. So I don't see how the slip on would work properly

Yep, I`m with you on that. I have a slip on on my 870 Super Mag but it`s a solid stock. Maybe someone else has some other ideas.

I posed the question about synthetic stocks and the Airtech slip on pad to Airtech customer service. . How it would function with a void at the end of the stock. Bill Barnhart of Limbsaver said that the air pressure trapped inside the stock would allow the pad to function. It would compress more than a wood stock application but would lessen the felt recoil almost as much.

Does anyone know if the Limbsaver aiirtech small medium slip on pad will fit the stoeger m3000 m35000 stock snuggly.

I took a gamble and ordered the Airtech slip on pad with the .5 LOP small/medium.
I removed the stock pad and installed the slip on pad. It fit snuggly and has shortened my LOP by about .25. I need a little more but I will try it . My only worry is that on this inertia shotgun the lighter felt recoil may cause failure to eject. I will try it after Christmas and see.
