I have a lace on riser and the RST Velcro as well. I have also found the RST pad slips quite a bit and it is a little thick. The Beretta jell pads I've tried work well but I have yet to purchase one. I was going to try one when quail hunting but I also needed a slip on butt pad for a little added LOP and decided the comb riser would just be to much junk on the stock and just went out and shot the gun.

I have a gun with a 3" DAH and a 1 7/8" DAC. Also, the LOP was short. I fought trying to shoot it with just a slip on pad to increase the LOP. I finally shot it with the slip on pad and put the Berettta gel pad on it. The gel pad covered a little bit of the slip on pad. For me, this combination worked extremely well. The gel pad didn't move and came off easily. Now I need to see if the stock can be bent!

The problem with bending the stock is you have to bend the trigger guard and top tang as well. This can also effect the trigger sears. Thats a lot to try to bend esp if it's a pistol grip gun. I have a CHE 20 that had a lot of drop it was impossible to bend it enough so it got restocked.

Rich,

Your points above are what I'm afraid of with a stock bend. It is a straight stock, but it would be a losing proposition to do a restock. I guess I can put a pad on it to get the correct LOP and maybe reduce some weight by hollowing out the stock. I'm not sure how well the gel pad will work in the brambles.

Thanks,
Ken

Ken I don't think you will have any problems with the jell pad. I once had a GHE 16 with 30 inch vent rib barrels that had to much drop and not enough LOP. I used a slip on pad and a lace on leather comb riser. The gun looked like it was out of some S&M movie but at least I could shoot it.
