Mounting a Morgan Adjustable Pad
This isnt that hard a mod, but I’m posting it so that the guys who are unsure how it mounts or how much work it is can see and maybe make the leap. It took me a long time to get arond to buying one, and along with the Ergo grip I’m very glad I did. Now when I shoulder rifle its in the same spot every time and there’s no shuffling to get the right position.
First the really easy way…
Here are the Parts you get with the Morgan laid out.
Remove the AF butt plate from the Bottle (not used for this version).
Use the existing bolt from the AF plate too attach the base plate of the Morgan using the top hole.
That method works fine and is super simple. I left mine that way for a few weeks until I finally decided today that there is no excuse for me to not do it “properly” and make it a bit more secure and look a bit nicer and professional (IMHO).
For the slightly more involved method you’ll need some tools.
I took the pad to the hardware store and found a bolt that fit the countersunk recess in the Morgan mounting plate. 8-32 fit perfectly so I bought two.
Then line up the holes in the morgan and mark, drill and tap corresponding holes in the AF plate.
The bolts I bought are a bit long.
so I used a dremel cut off tool to mark and then cut them to the correct length and a grinder to finish.
Then simply attach the morgan plate to the AF plate and mount to the gun.
Attach the Morgan pad and all done.
I’m going to touch it up with some paint to hide where I ground the bolts flat, but other than that its all done and took about 20 minutes (10 minutes spent finding the right tools)
Cue WOK posting his…
