Using shotgun butt "shims"

4 posts in this topic

I'm puzzled by the talk I heard about shotgun "shim kits" that presumably allow you to change what I've called "drop" all my life, and also adjust "cast-off" or "cast-on" to a shotgun butt. I'm puzzled at how they would work, without making the gun double-ugly i.e. with stuff sticking out all over from the butt plate. What am I missing? How do they work? Can you actually change the fit of a shotgun with one of these kits?? Doing serious changes to pitch, drop, cast etc. used to be a time consuming challenge. So, what sthe deal?

Never to old to learn something new! confused.gif

Most shims go between the stock and the reciever instead of off the butt plate. A shim can make a worlds difference in how your gun pulls up.

Diddo what rost said. My Benelli M1 has the adjustable shim kit that fits between the stock and reciever and a little bit goes a long ways. Picture how you want to be looking down the barrel when you shoot, then shoulder the gun with your eyes closed. Open your eyes, and if the gun isn't where you want it, odds are it's not a proper fit. Then the trial and error starts.

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.
