All really good ideas and some fine looking leatherwork-I would like the Henry buttstock cover also but there is a money problem-problem is I don't have enough.

I have the same problem with my 357. Brass butt plate slides around. Any else know of a less expensive solution? Will a Lyman pachmer butt plate cover fit?

Put non-slip tape on your shoulder like a shooting patch.
You could add a slip on recoil pad but you would end up with a 15 inch pull.

Might try skateboard tape on the very back of the plate. It's tape with a gritty surface on the outer side designed to keep feet from slipping on skateboards. Can usually find it at Wax-Mart or hardware stores. Won't change LOP, plus it is removable.

:idea: Post from NCG got me thinking! What about using mole skin, like they make for inside of shoes to prevent sllipping or rubbing. Fairly cheap and thin as well. Easily removed also and subtle light tan color to boot.
I don't have a brass butt plate on either of my Henrys, but if I did, I might try it.

This works for me on my squirrel rifles. Cut from a sheet of the material used on stair steps. When removed just a little glue may need removed with some WD-40 or glue remover.

If you are referring to the brass buttplate sliding, the stock cover I have is rough-out leather on the end. No slide. Can't see the end in the pic but it form fits the butt plate. I don't use this cover much but it certainly holds tight to the shoulder. Made by Ricochet Roy. Hope this helps.

Nice, and I"ve often think of getting one for at least one of my lever guns. The problem is I aslo worry that it will eventualy discolor the wood if left on. So then there's the reality of going through the process of putting it on and taking it off anytime I take it out to use it. Still like the way they look and have often looked at various websites and makers to determine which one I would get. But in the end I don't think I will ever get one.
