Greetings,

Can anyone recommend a method of shortening a blastic buttstock and fitting a recoil pad?

Thanks

Good Grief!!! DON'T shorten that buttstock!!
If it's too long for you, measure it and sell it here. Then buy a shorter one. The long buttstocks are in short supply. Those FALaholics with gorilla arms will gladly take it off your hands!
Let us know what kind of stock you have (SA, STG, Imbel, etc). Perhaps someone has an identical one and would be willing to swap.

1gewehr,

Which plastic stocks are the shortest?

I've got a R1 buttstock. It seems a little long.

Thanks for the reply.

The latest TAPCO catalog shows the different stocks, good place to start.

Apache7,

SodaPop posted a message over on the General forum looking for a longer stock. Might want to trade him!
