Most Asked: Adjusting Length of Pull (LOP)
A common question received at KICK-EEZ from customers who purchase new guns involves the need to adjust Length of Pull (LOP). If you need to increase your LOP, choosing a thicker recoil pad would be a great remedy. KICK-EEZ makes recoil pads in five different thicknesses, 1/2”, 3/4”, 15/16”, 1 1/8” and 1 3/8”. KICK-EEZ also sells spacers that come in three thicknesses: 1/8”, 1/4” or 1/2” that can be added to your recoil pad to further increase your LOP. If, on the other hand, your current pad is too thick and you need to decrease your LOP, you should choose one of our thinner recoil pads, possibly our 1/2” or our 3/4” pad. In the event that you are trying to decrease your LOP drastically for a youth shooter, for example, you could cut your stock and still add a thicker pad to help reduce recoil for your young shooter. Be advised, though, that cutting a stock will devalue your gun and as the young shooter grows, you may not be able to increase the LOP needed. If you have additional questions about ways to increase or decrease your LOP, contact our office. KICK-EEZ offers one-on-one Technical Support to assist you with all your shooting needs!
