Default Got an 1873 with a crescent buttplate...I hate the crescent buttplate...help

After about 10 years on the hunt, I was extremely fortunate to find a really nice 1873 Cimarron Deluxe Short Rifle in .45 Colt with a beautiful piece of wood (thanks Larry!).

I've already ordered up a couple hundred pieces of brass and a Marble Tang sight, but I hate the crescent buttplate. I know you are supposed to run them out on the arm, but 30 years of shooting straight shotgun butt style long guns isn't changing for me. I plan to just shoot this as a very fun plinker and have no serious plans for it, just something to enjoy often. I'd like to make it more comfortable, but don't know what leather goods are good and which are not.

What leather pads do you guys like best on your crescent lever guns? Recoil isn't the issue, I'm trying to find something that is a more flat shotgun style butt. Thanks.

you can add a bit of padding under the leather if you want , no more slipping of the shoulder either and it does cut the recoil down just a tad....if you add some padding it will smooth out the curve a bit.

These are pretty nice, too. I have one on my side by side and his lace-on lever pads on all my lever guns. Good stuff. It looks like he's expanded his covers into the fancy territory, if you want to drop coin on hand tooling

Richocet Roy makes a stock cover for 73s that specifically converts the crescent to a carbine style with no mods to the stock. Made for Uberti but isn’t Cimmaron usually a slicked up Uberti?

Roy is now offering a new stock cover that easily converts the Uberti 66 or 73 crescent style stock and butt plate to a carbine style stock and butt plate. If you are considering cutting your expensive Uberti crescent style stock, you might want to turn out on that notion and consider Roy’s Model 66-73-C2C-SPECIAL Stock Cover. Standard Model Price is $105.00 plus shipping.
I have found him to be responsive to emails and his leather and craftsmanship are very good. You might shoot off a message and ask for more info. https://rroldwest.com/contact-roy
