I love the gun, but one thing has got me puzzled. Every once in awhile, the trigger guard will smack my middle finger pretty hard at the shot. I am a pretty experienced bird hunter who has used several different guns in my lifetime and this is the first gun to smack my finger!

I suspect that the Length of Pull (LOP) is short for me. I am 6'4" with pretty long arms and fingers. Browning specs the LOP for this gun at 14 3/4".

I have looked online for a recoil pad spacer for the 725 Field, but cant seem to locate one.

DO any of you Smiths out there have any suggestions? Do any of you shot-gunners have advice to keep me from smacking my finger on the trigger guard? As I've said, this is the first gun I have owned that does it.

THanks a million in advance.
I can see where your arm length is most likely the issue. If you do decide to go with spacers between butt-stock and pad, it's gonna look sorta weird.
What I would suggest is to try a slip-on pad, right over what you have now, if only to see if the finger-smacking quits. If that added LOP does do the trick, then you might consider having something more permanent done.
