Let's talk length of pull (LOP).
I'm about to start working on my youngest son's rifle. I have to order a stock, and can specify the LOP. Right now, he is 11 years old, and he measures 11 1/4". He is on the smaller side of normal for his age, I'm pretty sure he's going to end up in the range of 5'6" to 5'9" (so the Dr's charts say).
I'm wondering about LOP for his rifle. The idea is a trim Mauser, full stock with 20" barrel. I'd like to make the whole stock proportional, so a shorter LOP would work out. However, what length would be 'right'.
I'm thinking of ordering the stock with a finished LOP including a 1/2" recoil pad of 12 or 12 1/2". And then later when he is older and larger, replacing the 1/2" pad with a 1" pad, thus making the LOP 12 1/2" or 13".
Opinions on the idea?
On a secondary note, what LOP are you folks using?
