If it makes you happy good I am with it. Your gun, your choice.

Good morning Jon.
We've stripped about a pound off of this now demure little 28 gauge.
The recoil taming properties of that big ass ventilated pad are completely lost on me
and superfluous on this tiny sub gauge. FKST will become a proper RKLT to a Makers butt plate as J.B. and God intended.

I'm also hoping to convert a 28 and a .410 from skeet to field style. I made a stock for the .410 but gave up on the forend. That's the most difficult piece of wood I ever tried and never could get it completed. I've been searching for years for semi-completed wood but have never found a source. Where did you get yours? As you say, RKLT is proper for these guns.

Round knobs looks nice. Nothing screams 1970's like a white line recoil pad. Grab your polyester bell bottom pants, with a nice wide white belt, and buggy on over to the Skeet field. People laugh when I tell them I hate fitting fore ends and would rather do three butt stocks than a single fore end.There is no hiding a mistake on a fore end and there can be many times more surfaces needing to be fit at the same time.
