Have you given any thought to how well the stock does or doesn't fit you?
Most factory stocks fit only the people near the "average" height and arm length. If the gun is too long in the pull for you, recoil can be quite uncomfortable for you. If the length of pull is too short, you could end up having to take a cheek weld further back than you want to make sure you don't get bit by the scope.
I've seen lots of people struggling with rifle or shotgun recoil who could benefit from a gun that actually fits them.
