Shortening the LOP on a Nova


Recommended Posts

My wife has a Nova in camo, but after a round of sporting clays saturday, we figured out the LOP is way too long for her. Im looking for a good way to shorten the LOP, but the only thing I have come up with is to cut it off, glue a chunk of wood in the stock, and screw a grind to fit pad into the wood. I was wondering if there was a better way.

You are on the right track. The Super Nova can have a plate attached to the stock tube (via a homemade coupling) for the new recoil pad screw into, but the Nova generally get a wooden block epoxied inside the stock.



Most epoxies will not bind well to the stock polymer, so cut some groves, notches, etc. inside the stock so the epoxy can mechanically lock into the recesses.
