There is length of pull and there is your length of pull. Length of pull is the distance from the trigger face to the butt plate when nestled or “socked” into your shoulder. The standard length from the factory on most but not all shotguns is between 13.25 and 13.5 inches. Youth and certain tactical models will have a shorter pull length right “out of the box”.

Benelli Supernova comes with standard rubber buttpad which is good but there is better option. You can get gel pads with different length of pull. Also they are softer and work with recoil better.
The stock of the shotgun is truly the most attractive part of the weapon. Not only is it the most noticeable when you first see the weapon, but it also provides the shooter with certain benefits which help their stability and accuracy. Obviously, not all stocks are made of the same material or cut into the same size. There are all kinds of sizes, materials, and shapes with the stock choices on the market these days. You just need to be able to figure out which stock is going to be comfortable for your body type and preference. However, if you are upgrading another shotgun by replacing its factory stock with a better-quality stock, you have to make sure the new stock you purchase is compatible with the model of your shotgun. Otherwise, the stock won’t be able to fit properly onto the receiver. Sometimes, it is recommended that you purchase a stock from the same company that made your shotgun because this will increase its chances of being fully compatible.
