Default I got beat up

I had planned on sighting in and giving an accuracy report on the highly MODIFIED M44 carbine however I found the eye relief was not what I remember 20 years back when I took 5 deer with this thing.
I did fire 3 rounds of Silver tips but two rounds of 180 grain S&B was a bit much and smacked me between the eyes

I have replaced the scope for more eye relief and will eventually give it an evaluation to the best of my ability
rifle is 27" long with 20" barrel

Had my slug gun do that to me more than once, with plenty of eye relief (4 1/2"). I feel your pain!!!

Ow, my M44 does a good job also. My friends daughter who is 23-24 shot mine sitting and when it went off she rocker back then rocked forward and looked at us and went OH NICE!! She then sent about another 5-10 rounds down range and quit. I love mine for that reason and the muzzle flash (easily visible in the daytime).

I was sighting in a 12 Gauge single shot shotgun onetime that someone else had mounted the scope wrong and got nailed like that. Ouch!

Default Placement ???

Look at the placement of the heel of the stock on her shoulder. Her boyfriend(?)should have his ass kicked by 1000 circus clowns. ---SAWMAN

Same question. I've made a couple stocks but that one looks different. Does it feel good to hold?

Been there a few times on the face slap, not good with a BMG, broke the bone in my nose, and yes it was the first time I ever shot one and never happened again after that one. Hope it didn't get you too bad.

yes I made the stock because it came with a broken stock but bright shinny bore , it was raining all week , i was stuck inside and went - HUMMMM.
in the day it wasn't so bad. I even shot 200 Grn ammo out of it but the 180 Grn S&B kicks extremely hard , I do think my age is the main factor
in a few weeks i will give an accurate report on this rifle with a new scope on it
