Thinking Of Doing "Bad Things" To My Winchester

Discussion in 'Tactical Shotguns' started by Restless28, Feb 5, 2011.

  1. My old police Winchester 1300 Defender is a cool gun, but the length of pull is a bit long for me.

    I hate to do it, but, I'm thinking about removing the old original wood, and installing a Hogue set...:dunno:

    Nice looking scattergun, you have there!!!

    Put the original furniture in a safe place and go for the Hogues!!

    When I bought an 870 Express Youth 20 ga. for my son, the original stock was too long.
    I found a 'beater stock' (Remington 760) at a gunshow and after several trim adjustments, he had a stock that was perfect for his (then) small frame.

    Two weeks ago, we put the original buttstock (with a Limbsaver pad) back on.

    Why not just have the original stock cut down?
  5. Theres a guy in the classifieds selling a "Birdhead PG set" for your Winny. That'll shorten it.:whistling:

  7. I've read about guys not liking the short version of the Hogue stock because when you shoot your thumb is right in front of your nose and it comes back and whacks you. There is also a longer L.O.P. version. I'm debating between it and a factory synthetic.
  8. That just requires you to not wrap your thumb around the stock.
  9. ...which is not a valid option for me.

    Keep your wood set, oil it, and put it in a safe place. Buy (insert wanted set here) and enjoy...
  11. +1,

    When I thought my 870 stock was too long I took it out to the garage, fired up the radial arm saw and took 3/4" off the length of pull.

    You can always get another wood stock for the 1300.

    Or look around for a beat up wood stock, they often are found in bins in gun shops. Cut the beat up stock down, refinish it and save your original stock for whatever.
