A properly fit shotgun stock is a combination of adjustments. These adjustments are unique to each individual shooter and include the drop dimensions, the proper length of pull, pad rotation and the comb alignment and height. The “fit and feel” of a shotgun and where it patterns are all dependent upon these unique dimensions.
The major challenge for most student athletes and coaches is having a shotgun that “fits” them from season to season. As a shooter grows, their body structure changes requiring the need for the gun to be refit. The RS400 is the solution to this problem.
Adjustable Butt Plate System
The stock’s length of pull, on a full length stock, can be adjusted from 13 ½” to 14 ¾” for proper gun mount and cheek placement on the comb of the stock. The youth stock adjusts from 12 ½” to 13 ¾”. The pad can be rotated in either direction for proper shoulder pocket fit. This reduces felt recoil and the natural reflex to cant the toe of the pad away from the top of the pectoral muscle. The pad can also be adjusted in an up and down direction 1 ¼” to insure proper eye alignment to the sighting plane
Adjustable Stock Shim System
A selection of 6 stock shims are provided with the shotgun. Three of the shims adjust the drop dimension of the stock from the standard drop dimension. The shim with the maximum drop dimensions is DAC 1 3/4” and DAH 1 7/8”. The shim with the minimum drop dimension is DAC 1 5/8” and DAH 1 5/8”Also included are two shims that adjust the cast from neutral to either Left or Right. These cast shims have a standard Drop Dimension of DAC 1 3/4” and DAH 1 3/4”
Adjustable Comb Hardware
The adjustable comb can be moved horizontally ¼ inch from the center line of the stock in either a left or right direction. The comb can be adjusted vertically upward ½ inch by using washers that slide over the post. These comb adjustments insure that the shooters eye is in alignment with the center line of the rib
RS – Hybrid Recoil System
The new light load recoil system allows even the youngest of the youth shooters to utilize a 12ga shotgun in practice and competition. The gas assisted “RS” will cycle a full range of ammunition from light, 1oz low recoil, loads to 1 ¼ oz heavy field loads.
