How big a deal and cost is it to have a Beretta 686 length of pull changed will the stock have to be cut?
The factory length with pad is 14 3/4 inch right not,I would like to have it 13 3/4 could I possibly just take the pad off and install a plastic butt plate?
Where would I get one to do it right?you know I would not want a Sears butt plate on a Beretta🎃
And if I decide to cut the stock and put the pad back on,how much does it cost and how long of a wait?

Check out Tron here in MI - fantastic stock work. Or Graco.

Is this a field gun? If so you will want to cut the stock and have a pad ground to fit. Once you cut the profile is a bit smaller and the standard pads wont fit right.

If a target gun have an adjustable buttplate installed [also must cut the stock.]

Its a 1 hour job for an expert but you will be without your stock for 2-3 weeks most likely if you have to send it off.

You can find shorter replacement stocks but they will be $$ for 686 and the wood wont match the forend as well.

If you go to a big sporting clays shoot, there will be stock people there who can measure you and do the work overnight, or at least by the end of the shoot. You you can also compare work and different systems.

You don't have to enter the shoot.

Two big upcoming shoots in the near future.

Trust me, you want a pro to measure you before someone starts hacking away at it.

If you have the stock cut, (and all of mine are) there is minimal cost to add a quality recoil pad at the same time,

The Forest City shoot will probably have the most vendors,
