Most of the time the mounting brackets on a synthetic stock are at least 4" or 5" inches long. Stock makers know that people need to cut shotgun stocks to fit.
I have also seen gunsmiths cut metal or wood brackets to glue with JB weld or their favorite epoxy. I don't know if a metal bracket is a sign of the gunsmiths skill but the metal brackets work better.
