NEVER TIGHTEN THE SET SCREW DIRECTLY ONTO THE THREADS, AS THIS WILL DAMAGE YOUR GUN.
When properly adjusted, the set screw will align perfectly with the proper groove. Several extra set screws are provided. Do not insert them into the recoil pad plate holes at the same time. Only one set screw should be installed at any given time. 'Hie procedures for adjusting cant and pull are outlined below.

Adjusting Length of
Pull and Recoil Pad Cant_
Length of pull is adjusted by screwing the recoil pad and plate in or out on the threaded inner cylinder extending from the recoil reducer. Recoil pad cant is set by angling the recoil pad with respect to the stock, and securing it with a set screw.
The recoil pad plate has three threaded holes for inserting a set screw and securing the recoil pad plate to the recoil reducer inner cylinder. These holes allow you to set the angular cant of the recoil pad: for Right Hand, Left Hand or Neutral Position. Each position has its designation inscribed on the recoil plate adjacent to its threaded hole (See Figures 10 and 11). There are three perpendicular grooves traversing the threads on the inner cylinder. Each threaded hole corresponds to a groove, depending on the setting of the recoil pad for cant. Your BT-99 Plus comes with one set screw, pre-positioned and tightened down in the Neutral Position.
BEFORE PERFORMING ANY ADJUSTMENTS, ALWAYS MAKE CERTAIN THERE IS NO SHELL IN THE CHAMBER.
The BT-99 Plus comes with the recoil pad set in the neutral cant position. Length of pull comes set, from the factor^', at approximately 14 1/4". Maximum pull is approximately 14 1/2" and minimum length is approximately 14". To adjust the length of pull:
1 Loosen the set screw in the recoil pad plate using the smaller alien wrench provided (2mm). The set screw is in the hole designated "Neutral Position" on the right side of the recoil pad plate on your new BT-99 Plus.
2 To shorten length of pull turn the pad clockwise. Each turn represents 1/20". To lengthen, turn the pad counterclockwise. When shortening the length of pull do not turn the pad bracket down the inner cylinder past the point where resistance to turning is encountered (See Figure 12). When lengthening pull never unscrew the recoil pad plate excessively. Always leave at least four threads engagement between the plate
