    Ok gotta question guys, my go to hunting rifle is my Thompson encore 35 whelen. I love it but I’m a big guy and the length of pull is quite a bit short for me. If I could add about 3-4 inches to the stock I think it would be perfect. I’ve search several times but come up empty anyone ever modify or do something similar? Thanks for the intel.

    What's your LOP? 3in to a normal stock would be about 16.5in LOP it would be very unwieldy

    I wonder if you have a youth stock or a cut down stock. Did you buy it new? You really are a tall guy if you need 3” added to a full length stock.

    Check with hausofarms.com. They may have something.

    Well I’ve never measured My lop to be honest. But the butt stock needs to be longer. But when I shoulder the rifle Everything is so close. I can rest my face on my scope almost and I can reach a couple inches past the trigger. It just doesn’t fit like all my other non Thompson rifles. Lol

    No sir I’m sure it’s not a youth model. I bought it new several years ago. It’s a pro hunter with that flextech stock. I love the stock just with it was a bit longer
