    years ago Anton made a crossover stock for Vic Reinder's wife Tommy. they look wierd as hell, and are usually expensive, but supposely work. i know a guy who took an Anton roll over stock and sanded away the roll over and it basically did the same thing. save some money and grief and try a "magic Dot" first to see if that solves your problems. also try the attachment that some shooters place on their barrel to stop your eye dominence problems.

    Cross over stocks have generally been replaced by off set ribs or off set scopes. They work well for shooters who have lost vision in one eye. They are probably extreme measures for cross dominance problems.

    They work well for those who have lost sight in their dominant eye.

    Mr. Melvin Wiley of Ft. Worth TX had Wenig build 2 for his trap gun after a stroke damaged his "shooting Eye".

    He has been able to successfully shoot trap for the past few years because of them.

    Just in case anyone is interested I have a very nice crossover stock for a Remington 870. It is for a left handed shooter, right eye dominant. Comes with all the mounting hardwear. If you are interested give me a call at 208/476/7480 Pacific time and I can send you some pictures.

    I use crossover stocks and I also use the Carey Sidesighter. I have good results from both. I would buy another Carey sidesighter if someone has one for sale at a good price. I would also be interested in a crossover stock for a K-32 or K-80.
