- Using a 1/8” Allen wrench loosen the set screw and thumbwheel so that the buttpad dovetail slider can be removed.
- Place the desired amount of LOP spacers between the stock and vertical buttpad adjustment base as shown below, inserting the #10-32 x 1-¾” screws into the slots on the vertical buttpad adjustment base and through the LOP spacers.
NOTE: The vertical buttpad adjustment base and buttpad dovetail plate will add slightly more length than 2 LOP spacers (0.5in).

- Using a 1/8” Allen wrench, secure the vertical buttpad adjustment base onto the stock using the provided screws, ensuring the screws are properly aligned with the LOP spacers. Before fully tightening the screws, adjust the horizontal and cant positioning of the vertical buttpad adjustment base as desired.
- Slide the buttpad dovetail slider into the vertical buttpad adjustment base. Using a 1/8” Allen wrench, tighten the set screw until it stops the buttpad from sliding out but doesn’t cause any resistance.
- Using the thumbwheel, secure the buttpad dovetail slider at the desired position. The installation is now complete.
NOTE: If there is movement when the buttpad dovetail slider is secured in the highest position, move the thumbwheel to the higher of the two tapped holes to secure the buttpad dovetail slider.

|1. ALWAYS KEEP THE MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION.|
|Never allow your firearm to point at anything you do not intend to shoot. Always handle any firearm as if it were loaded and ready to shoot. UNLOAD ALL FIREARMS WHEN NOT IN USE. ALWAYS VERIFY. Load your firearm only when you are in the field or on the target range and ready to fire. Unload as soon as you finish shooting. Verify that the firearm is unloaded before storing and ALWAYS when you pick it up.|
|2. DO NOT RELY ON ANY MECHANICAL SAFETY.|
|Safety devices are not a substitute for safe handling procedures. Treat every firearm as if it can fire at any time, regardless of the safety position. Do not touch the trigger until you are ready to fire.|
|3. UNDERSTAND THE TARGET AND WHAT IS BEYOND THE TARGET.|
|Do not fire unless you know exactly where your shot is going, and what is beyond the expected point of impact. Never fire at a sound, a movement, or a patch of color. If you cannot see clearly what is beyond the target, DO NOT SHOOT.|
|4. NEVER SHOOT AT WATER OR AT A HARD SURFACE.|
|Shooting at water, rocks, or other hard surface may result in bullet fragmentation with unpredictable flight paths.|
|5. USE PROPER AMMUNITION.|
|The use of wrong ammunition, mixed ammunition, or improperly reloaded ammunition may result in serious injuries or death, and catastrophic damage to your firearm. Check each round before loading. If in doubt, DO NOT SHOOT.|
|6. IF THE FIREARM FAILS TO FIRE, DO NOT MOVE.|
|If the ammunition does not fire when you pull the trigger, stop and keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Wait 15 seconds before opening the chamber. Look away from the chamber while opening it and removing the round. In semi-automatic firearms, remove the magazine before manually cycling the round. Properly discard the round immediately. DO NOT try to fire it again.|
|7. ALWAYS WEAR EYE AND EAR PROTECTION WHEN SHOOTING.|
|Wear protective shooting glasses to guard against any combustion discharges, cartridges ejection, or debris resulting from firing your firearm or firearms around you. Also, wear eye protection when you are disassembling or cleaning a firearm to guard against tensioned parts and cleaning solvents. Always use ear protection.|
|8. VERIFY THAT ACTION AND BARREL ARE CLEAR BEFORE SHOOTING.|
|Before loading your gun, inspect the action and barrel to ensure there are no obstructions such as snow, mud, excess lubricant, cleaning patches, or any other foreign material.|
|9. LEARN THE PARTICULAR CHARACTERISTICS OF EACH FIREARM.|
|Not all firearms are alike. Become very familiar with the firearm before shooting. Learn safe handling procedures for loading, unloading, carrying, shooting and storing each firearm before firing the first round.|
|10. SHOOT SOBER!|
|NEVER handle any firearm while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or any medication that may impair your senses in any form.|
