My question is how hard are they to install, do i need to worry about drilling the Kevlar and all the other stuff that gos in these things? i have a full shop of tools (mostly wood tools). I would think i would just need to drill a hole 9/16"X5"+ (thats the size of the reducer) on a parallel plane with the stock, then a plug to stop any front to back movement.
That is basically all there is to it except that some composite stocks have a hollow butt stock.
and you would have to address that issue.
I have heard that once you drill into the cavity simply use some insulating foam to fill it
and then finish drilling the correct hole and install the recoil reducer and the recoil pad.
