Been reading Mr Rollin OswaldÅ› book and got to thinking.... I shoot skeet 99% of the time. I have an adjustable comb on my 425 and of course it will not change the angle to get to parallel with the rib. Other than a custom stock or buy a new gun what can I do? Make a custom piece to put on the adjustable comb a possibility... Maybe it is not worth it. thoughts?

Can the adjustable comb be raised more in the back than the front? That would do it. That would basically give you a Monte Carlo style parallel comb. If not able as purchased, perhaps a gunsmith could modify the comb riser so that the posts would enter it at an angle thereby allowing the rear to be at the same height as the front. You might lose the ability to further adjust the comb, but if it gives you what you want, no big deal.

Just a slight bit. Not enough to get to parallel.

The holes in the riser could be re-drilled at a back slanting angle.

Yep. That is possible. I thought of getting a nice piece of walnut and making another comb. Or getting a 3d print out of delrin done.

If you can get the program written for the 3D part printing, that would be ideal. The adjustable comb hardware and cutout gives you a natural way to attach it. Also you could over print a softer plastic for a cushioned cheek rest.

As a first move you could go at it with some cardboard and tape and fine out if you want a parallel comb. They do make 6 way adjustable combs but I do no expect that it will just swap out with what you have now. It would be pretty easy to make a comb if it turns out you like the parallel comb.

I don't think that you could get to a "usable" parallel comb by modifying your existing comb without really butchering it up. Typically, a parallel comb will have about 1 7/8" drop. It's likely that your current SLANT comb has about 1 1/2" drop at the front when seated as low as it will go.

This means that you'll have to shave 3/8" off the nose of the comb and taper that down to zero near the center. Then you'll have to build up the rear of it by about an equal tapered amount.

That's a lot of work and messing with your existing comb, and no guarantee that you'll be happy with it when you're done. If you're not happy with it, you've likely screwed it up royally such that it will never be good for anything again.

Better to just try to make a different comb or use the one you've got. Or, trade guns! {hs#

Yes. I was thinking of getting some walnut and playing around with it or trying a delrin 3d printer mock
up.
