Call up and talk to the folks at H&S Precision. They made the stock. The stock is hollow. Perhaps a new recoil pad would do? I believe the Sendero recoil pads are quite thick.

I am a full time, full service gun shop.

If the stock is hollow, it's no big deal, just a little extra work. Most are not however. They use bowling ball filler so that the shell has some internal support.

I don't use a saw to cut for LOP. I've made fixtures for stock work that go into milling machines. Doing it this way and climb cutting around the periphery ensures a clean edge free of chips and splits.

Good luck.

The stock is definitely hollow. I have handled a gun in which something was broken off and rattling inside.
