    Are you tired of going to the local hardware store to shim your comb up or down to the right elevation? If so, we have got the solution for you!

    What we do: Once the gun arrives, we disassemble it, we then re-machine the parts . Once the parts have been re-machined we reinstall the reworked parts. Your gun will not be altered or disfigured in any way. We keep the integrity of your gun intact.


    The Result: You will be able to make fine adjustments, up and down, left and right to your adjustable comb with total locking ability to keep your settings in place. We guarantee it!


    Why are we doing this rework: I experienced what you are experiencing with your Browning. I experienced the comb on my Browning Citori XT moving while shooting giving me a challenge out in the field. I called Browning and also gunsmiths to find a solution. Their solution was to buy plumbing parts to shims the comb from moving! So I tried this and found that the shims did not stop the left and right movement on my adjustable comb. Being a gunstock maker, I thought, Going to a local hardware store to find parts to fix my adjustable comb is crazy. I told myself, "I am not going to settle for their solution.” So I came up with one myself and would like to share it with you.


    Models Numbers that we can rework:

    Cynergy Classic BT99

    Cynergy Classic Trap Unsingle Combo with adjustable comb

    Can you explain, with pictures, exactly what you do besides saying "remachining". Show me what is being changed and how the new system differs from the old and then my stock will be in the mail to you.

    My gun is the one pictured above.

    Got tired of fighting my adj comb hardware on my XT.

    Was going to have Stephen put in Graco replacement hardware.

    Before doing so he took the gun apart and believes he has come up with a cheaper fix. When I was playing around with it yesterday it does seem to be much tighter. Even when the old hardware was newly tightened down there always seemed to be a little bit of play in it- which is now gone

    I have about 200 rounds through it so far and is holding tight. The old hardware seemed to fail around 200 rounds, so I am going to continue test drive this and see how it goes.

    I like the one screw, four way adjustable part of the Browning hardware- didn't like the fact it slipped.

    Hopefully this is a permanent fix and will allow me to keep using the original hardware.

    This also appears to be a cheaper fix than replacing the factory hardware.

    I will keep you posted on durability.

    Browning must know that this is a problem,but won`t do anything about it.

    The wood screws kept loosening in mine. Solved the problem by replacing the screws with slightly longer ones with coarser threads.

    couple more hundred rounds through. I checked comb position before and after I shot, and there was no movement.

    I even tried to crank on the screw with the wrench, and no movement.

    so far so good.

    No matter what he's doing, you're still stuck with the flimsy Browning hardware. Graco , as well as others makes good, solid replacement hardware for these guns. Do yourself a favor and toss the factory junk and replace it with some reliable hardware.

    Thank you Ken.

    It's like the old saying:

    "You can polish a turd but when it's all said and done, it's still a turd."
