You should be able to do it , with no sweat !

It came with shims , right ? So , first you have to measure your LOP , mount the gun with your ( fingers first joint ) on
the center of the trigger , bring the gun up to your cheek tight ( do-not lower your head on the stock ) like I said , bring the
gun ( up to your cheek ) , now have someone measure the distance between your nose and thumb ( should be 1" to 1 1/2" )
subtract the difference , from you measuring in a straight line from the center of the trigger to the center of the recoil pad
as the gun is laying flat on the table . That would be your LOP and you will cut the stock to accomplish that length , don't
forget the thickness of the recoil pad ?

The shims are forgiving , whether you are a right or left handed shooter , look at the directions , as to Cast-on for left
handers
or Cast-off for right handers but , the most important is comb height , make sure , with cheek down tight you're looking down
the center of the rib ( you can check this looking in the mirror ) your pupil will be inline with the bead or beads . Making more
comfortable , there should be a shim to cast the stock , more to your liking ?

Take your time and make it shoot where you're looking , and that is , with a hard focus on the lead-edge of the target !

Have fun.......other than that.......try your State forum for a fitter in your area .

If it's a plastic stock it's not that simple. ie stock screws won't line up in pre molded holes, cutting plastic can be iffy.

Measure the LOP, drop at heel and comb, etc on a SA gun you shoot well, and try to match the specs with the supplied shims. It comes with cast, drop, and LOP shims.

You shouldn't need a gunsmith unless you are totally monkey fisted.

Read the owners manual.
