Does anyone make shims for an O/U to alter the cast on a Browning Citori. It seems as though thye do this with autoloaders quite often but is anything available for the Citori?
I have a Gracoil LOP adjustible installed.Rollin Oswald said:Bryan,
My previous post has been edited so it makes more sense now.
If the stock is re-inletted to create cast at the heel, will not the stock angle back at the receiver with the comb also moving in the same direction? Might not having a pad adjuster installed give you the cast at the heel you want without affecting the position of the comb?
Excellent, I'm sure I can't be the only one with this problem.Rollin Oswald said:That leaves me with a couple of questions but I thought I'd offer it as a suggestion.
What I am achieving with the cast off, rh shooter, is the cast will move the heel of the gun away. Yes it will "angle" and that is exactly what I am looking for. I have a wide jaw in relation to the narrowness of my eyes. I have a hard time buying binoculars for this reason and I actually had to "modify" a set that I already had. I am actually looking to move the stock over as well as the comb to get the needed eye alignment. The gun right now I cannot get enough offset in the comb. If I move it all the way to the right that creates other problems. The cast will allow me to get the gun under my eye where it needs to be. I can shoot some good scores on easy to moderate SC courses. When the targets get to be " real fast" I cannot get my head down and to the right fast enough, with some head tilting in there too. I have to mash my head down and into the stock as well as some head turning to get the right "picture". Easy to do on slower to moderate targets where there is plenty of time, but on a fast target it becomes real difficult to do all that and maintain focus on the bird. The gun is an XS citori, they have zero cast, I have mounted several Berettas and Perazzis that have some cast and it is much better but still not enough, still have to mash my head to get cast. The result is an inefficent mount that "wastes too much time" when the target is in the focus and kill zone.Rollin Oswald said:What you wrote suggests that the stock is in the way and prevents your aligning your eye with the rib without laying your cheek on the comb. If that is correct, you are correct in trying to find a way to move the stock to the right.
The down side is that the comb would have to be moved in the opposite direction the butt is moved. That would leave the comb protruding 3/8" from the stock below it. I don't thing it would work. The side of your face could easily be be abraded during the barrel rise all guns have during recoil.
You may need an offset stock - one that zigs out at the wrist and then zags back just ahead of the comb. That may also contain a bit of wishful thinking. If you are sending your gun to S&S Plus in Polson, MT, be sure they understand what you need and why you need it.
I remember that gun !!! The cast in that gun was real nice, but man, was that gun short!! LOL.KRIEGHOFFK80 said:Bryan,
Call this gunsmith! He bent the stock on my 687 Beretta to give me more cast.
