    I bought a used PFS with an ultimate fit comb last fall but the UFC looks like it was an afterthought. It doesn't look like it came with all the necessary hardware.

    If you have pictures of a PFS with UFC, it would help me to determine how they need to be mounted on the PFS and whether or not I need to buy a UFC toolkit from Vern Brown. I've been to his website and couldn't find a picture of a UFC mounted on a PFS.

    That's the factory model.
    Why do you think it looks like an afterthought?
    It works really well.

    FFwildcat, I didn't say the UFC looked like an afterthought, I said the way it was mounted on the used PFS I purchased last fall looked like it was just an afterthought. In other words, I don't believe anyone ever used it mounted like it was; it looked like it had essential hardware missing and I couldn't (can't) figure out how it ever worked (as far as using/adjustments) on the PFS as it was as I received it. That's why I'm looking for pictures as a guide to how it SHOULD be mounted and what additional hardware I will need to mount it. I couldn't find anything on Vern Brown's website that dealt with the UFC other than they had them available for sale. Not even a price.

    Looks like you have all you need. If your right handed it mounts on right side of stock

    Pictures would be appreciated. Even a small amount of pressure on the top of the comb will cause it to slide down the adjustment slots on the L bracket. If I could just see one properly mounted, it would be a "I could have had a V8" moment, I'm sure.

    The UFC allows more cast without using a severe angle on the standard comb. With the UFC you get a better check to stock fit than laying your face along the surface of the standard comb.

    you might have to turn the comb block around so the screws are on the opposite side of your cheek so that it won't catch on your shirt. It's possible that whoever had the PFS before you didn't know how to mount the UFComb?

    It looks like you have spacers underneath the outside (buttonhead allens) screws. If so, where did you get them and what type are they, regular washers or "grip" washers (I forget what the funky lock washers with all the points are called).

    Dverna

    It looks like the UFC is flush against the split ring assy and that you removed the washers from the inner allen head bolts. That so? And yes, the UFC was mismounted when I got the PFS. It was mounted on the left side, not the right as yours is.

    Would it be worth it to go ahead and spring for a UFC toolkit from Vern, do you think?

    Wanted a little more cast, when I moved comb over on the left side the angle would rub on my cheek , so moved comb and angle as one, used small washers. I have extra button allens and washers . Send pm with address if you need them

    I don:t think you need to buy the kit

    Are you a lefty? If so, you can disassemble the top rail from the PFS so that you can reverse the split ring assy (slide off the split ring from the top rail, reverse, slide on and then reverse the comb). That way those pesky allen head screws won't be a problem as they will be on the left side of the PFS. At least I think so. I have enough trouble with 2D problems let alone 3D. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Oops! I see zinger already mentioned that. Thought he was talking to me.

    The split ring is bored off center to reverse it will put more cast to left side, and yes it can be reversed. I am right handed shooter. If your a right shooter I think it would going the wrong way for you

    Prairiedog,
    There two sets of fasteners where the comb mounts, one set serves to pinch the comb mounting block and the other pair have two threaded bushings that screw into the mounting block. These bushings are threaded to accept the two button head screws that hold the standard comb in place. These are the holes the UFC "L" bracket fasten into. I had the same problem of the comb sliding. When I took a hard look at the mounting block I came to understand I could tighten these fasteners very tight as they would not pinch the mounting block as the threaded bushings bore the pressure and did not pinch the block. In Zingers picture you can see these fasteners. Vern makes differnt length bushings to push the standard comb away from the stock, you can identify these by the slots across the thread holes. The sloted holes must be up against the "L" bracket.When using the UFC you can acheive cast adjustment by moving the comb pins right or left. Vern told me when I bought the comb, the "L" bracket should be away from my cheek. I'm a left hand shooter so the "L" bracket is mounted on the left side of the stock.
    Does this help?
