Cutting Synthetic Stocks?

Postby NYSuperSportsman » May 8th, 2008, 6:20 am

I have a mossberg 835. It is about 6-7 years old and it has a 28" barrell and is has the woodland camo pattern.  I like how it patterns and shoot but the stock is too long for me. I would like to take about 3/4 of an inch off of the stock. I have never heard of people cutting synthetic stocks so I dont know if I should? I also thought about buying a newer synthetic stock and forearm. I have pulled up a bunch of new 835s and they fit me alot better and are noticably shorter. I have also heard from others who own this gun ( the older style) that they had the same problem.. stock too long. Just looking for some ideas! thanks in adavance

My son has the old style Mossberg 500 and had the same problem. I bought him a pistol grip stock off of ebay for about $45, made by ATI. Problem solved and made it more shooter friendly. http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=m37&satitle=mossberg+stock&category0=

I also have the 835, I purchased it 11 years ago. As with all my firearms I too have to cut the stocks, and yes you can cut synthetic, you would have to fill the stock's cavity with a polymer type filler
