I had been looking for a .410 lever action for quite a while. Really wanted the Marlin version but came across this Henry a guy near me was selling so I scooped it up. This gun is based on the Henry 45-70 lever action. It is a sweet little shotgun. The only issue I had with it was the rubberized buttplate (pad). Why would anyone need a recoil pad on a .410 ?? I found the rubber buttpad would drag on my shirt or jacket when shouldering it. It was just enough to be annoying and the LoP was just a bit too much for Ms Tejun to shoot it. I reached out to Henry only to find that this was the only option they had for this version. I spent a few evenings searching the web for a buttplate I could fit to the stock but didn't have much luck. I remembered I had purchased some knife scale blanks and took one of them out to check. It was a perfect size to use so I started a little project to make my own buttplate. Pictures attached show the progress and final product. Came out great, just what I envisioned when I started.
