A pretty good estimator for appropriate length of pull (distance from trigger to rear of stock) is to divide your height in inches by 5.


If you are the average height of 5'10" that equals 70 inches. Divided that by 5 and you get a length of pull of 14 " which is what most over-the-counter modern man-sized guns come from the factory with.

BTW that is the same distance that you will get if you measure the distance from the interior crook of your bent elbow to the first joint on your index finger. Hold your forearm parallel with the floor, elbow at your side, palm facing up with your fingers extended. Lay a yardstick on your arm with the end pressed firmly against the bicep tendon where it meets the inside of the elbow joint. The calculated number will be at the first knuckle of the index finger. Funny how proportionally identical we human beings are.
