    A young shooter has asked me to make him some comb spacers for an adjustable factory comb on his Browning. This is the type with one adjustment screw thru the pad. Does anyone know the diameter of the vertical posts? I didn't have a wrench to take it apart to measure them. They look small, around 3/16" or so. Butch fom Pgh

    I just use 1/4" stainless steel flat washers in mine but any hardware store that sells fasteners should sell nylon spacers in a wide variety of lengths and inside/outside dimensions. You can buy short ones or buy long ones and cut them to your needs.<center>

    I know I use oversized ones from other applications. I was just inquiring about the post diameter, so I get ones that fit well.

    I would still like to know the diameter of the posts.

    I don't want to disturb mine to measure it, but the 1/4M Tap Washers slip on in a snug fit, like they were made for the posts.

    The posts on my BT 99 measure 0.189 give or take a couple thousandths. Woody
