Any hunters out there over 6'3" find an O/U that fits them good? Most seem a little to short for me to be comfortable with.

The only shotguns that seem to fit me are the Browning Gold and Beretta Extrema II (both auto's), but it would be nice to have a little vairity in the gun cabinet

I am 6'7" and I use a slip-on rubber recoil pad to get an addition inch of length. It may not be perfect but it helps. Other than having a custom stock made for a correct LOP or having some bone taken out of your arm it seemed to be the best compromise.

If I were shooting Clays or Trap competitively I would invest in a custom stock but in the field I do not thing it really matters if the length of pull is not ideal.

IMO, the Italian guns seem to run longer in length of pull then most other guns. Have you tried the Beretta's?

I'm right at 6' 3" 275lbs and I shoot a Winchester Select O\U with 28" barrels. It doesn't seem to small to me. Good luck in finding a gun..
