    On a trap stock,can the range of adjustment of an adj. comb. be made to allow for both "under & over" the original comb height? That is, can the installer remove more than the band saw cut width & cleanup amount, re-shape that part of the comb still forward on the stock(so that it looks right/blends) and obtain comb adjustment both higher & lower than original(un-cut stock)? I hope this ? is clearly stated. Thanks,
    Jack

    It depends on the stock and how much wood there is to work with. A double cut can be done on most Trap stocks, but others (Beretta Sporting OU's and a lot of autos and pumps with Skeet and Sporting stocks come to mind) can not. But, there is usually a way even in those cases to achieve what needs to be done.

    Raising a gun's point of impact (POI) can be done by raising the comb (and raising the level of the eye relative to the rib). When someone wants to lower the POI however, the comb can be lowered ONLY until the eye's vision of the rib is blocked by the action or receiver.

    As a rule of thumb, 1/8" of comb movement changes the POI approximately 3 inches, depending on the distance to targets and the length of the barrel.

    If the stock is a Monte Carlo, you can get a fair amount of downward adjustment in the height of the comb by sanding/grinding some wood off the top of the comb. It's not easy to get it right (a surface that's flat with no funny cups or bumps) when doing it by hand, and you have at least a partial refinishing job to do before you're done.

    I've done it and I'm not anxious to do it again.
