    they are solid compost stocks so in theory you could do it but other factors also come into play like why do you want to shorten it, what caliber and make is the gun, and which model of the medalist stock is it (if memory serves there are like a half dozen + models). Considering that they can be used with grind and fit recoil pads it should be fine but more information is always better. The best way is to probably just call the company.

      Cutting it off an inch is sure possible and of course any time you cut something off, it gets shorter. Even if it had a hollow interior, you could build it up as necessary with fiberglass filler. I don't think that will be necessary though on any of the B&C stocks. A grind down butt pad like a LimbSaver (or perhaps even the one that comes on it) can be made to fit. I like the B&C stocks. This doesn't sound like too difficult an effort. I would also skim bed the receiver so you get a better fit for your rifle.

        Pretty spendy stock. I might give B&C a call to see how much they would charge for the mod.

          If you cut an inch off of it, it will certainly be shorter.
          I would recommend that if you chose to DIY, a VERY, sharp, fine toothed saw be used to reduce the possibility of splintering the composite fiber. Like WAM said, maybe a call to B&C would be in order before you screw up a pricey piece of equipment.
