    I have a Western Arms 12 gage double barrel shotgun I got from my father in law when he pasted away last year. I refinished the stock and cleaned up the metal so it looks nice with the exception of the butt plate which fell apart on me. Right now I have a old one someone gave me but it doesn't fit and I probably need to buy something that I can fit to the contour. Does anyone have a good source for this? The gun is not worth a lot so I want to keep cost to a minimum. The one that came with the gun was only about 1/4" thick and a bakalite type material. Any leads would be apprecited.

    Thanks

    Yeah, they've got a bunch of butt plates.

    Also, go to Brownells website and contact them with your information, they may have one also. It may take them a couple of days to get back to you but they will answer you.

    buttler creek makes pads that come very close to fitted. measure your butt (The guns butt not yours) and see if they have one to fit it. A grind to fit is going to be a pain in the tuckes and cost more in jigs and equipment than 10 of the guns are worth.
