    I got a 100 Straight model on one of my BT99"s and it adjusts for just about any direction you need including combo directions. It fixed my canting problem.

    You could possibly need to adjust both the pad and the comb,

    You need the butt pad if you want consistency with your mounting but a combination of both may be necessary. You might want to find a local gunsmith. Even if you do not need the adjustable comb it might be worth it to go ahead and invest in one so you can better fit your gun. If you would like to learn more about stock fitting rollin has a great book called "Stock Fitters Bible".

    Sometimes too long a lop will cause a gun to "cant" to the left and too short can cause it to go to the right.

    Canting is the opposite of incantation. Try it. You'll like it. Some you'll lead others you you will follow.

    Butt pad rotation and/or comb off set should take care of canting.

    You will never get things perfect without an adjustable comb

    Canting is a good technique to put the rib and beads inline with your dominant eye. Don't fight it, just do it. If you are breaking the targets everything will be just fine. HMB
