The whole deal cost under $100 and the recoil pad is pretty good. It is also lighter than wood and everthing matches. Amazon had the stock and the spacer kit. It adds up to an inch in 1/4" increments. Your wood stock will sell on eBay in a heartbeat. BTW, I'm 6' 5".
Also Remington makes a synthetic Monte Carlo stock, you could buy the spacer kit for it. The MC stock is actually for use on their deer gun.
I bought the black monte carlo synthetic stock set and the LOP spacer kit....cost me just under $100, from Amazon. I'll see how this goes and will see how the monte carlo stock lines up with the flat rib on the 30" barrel. I know the monte carlo will help with the deer barrel but not sure about the flat rib bird barrel. As of right now, when mounting the gun, I'm seeing the back of the receiver, with either the deer barrel or the bird barrel.
