    As I consider a new trap gun, I still don't get the reason for the difference between a field stock and a Monte Carlo trap stock. I understand what the difference is (I think), but I don't understand why. It's important to me because some of the less expensive O/U's are "sporting", like the Beretta 686 Silver Pigeon I.

    The field stock on my current gun slopes upward. When I started shooting trap, the recoil caused the higher portion of the stock in front of my cheek to hit my cheek bone, and I ended up with a sore cheek. I modified the stock by adding a comb raiser to make the comb parallel (and adjusted the rib for POI). Presto. No more sore cheek.

    The question is, why would anyone want anything other than a Monte Carlo stock? Skeet, Sporting Clays, Field? It compensates for slightly different mount points because it is parallel, and it doesn't hit your cheek bone.
