In October 2017 I had my left knee replaced. Since my surgery I've lost 30 pounds. Since losing the weight (I'm not done losing) my guns no longer seem like they fit right and my average has dipped a little. My question is, after or during weight loss, can it sometimes be necessary to have to adjust your comb and or LOP? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

Lost 23 lbs lately, and found I had to raise my comb to accommodate my now slightly thinner face/ cheek bone. LOP stayed the same for me, but could see a change if shoulder/ chest muscle area took a bit of a hit after weight loss.........................

I lost 126lbs, I actually had to have my LOP increased afterwards, two things that I didn't expect, I needed a smaller hat and shoe

Darryle, congrats on your weight loss. My LOP still feels okay. It's just my face against the stock the doesn't feel right now.

if you lose weight in the face area, you may have to move the comb in towards your face to accommodate for the loss

Three years ago i lost 70 pounds. I ended up raising the comb about 0.25 inches. LOP was OK.

I’ve lost 25 pounds. I was having trouble getting my head down on the stock. Now I am able to shoot better as my face is a bit thinner. The LOP is the same.

I've had this problem several times but have always fixed it by regaining the weight.

I was told a couple of summers ago by a very well known shooting instructor that your stock fit will change at about a 20 pound loss or gain. Each 20 pound fluctuation will change the fit.
