    I need to go a little higher with my adjustable comb and I am running out of post height. My current post measures 0.977" tall and I would like to go to 1.65" tall. O.D. of the current posts are 0.33" - 0.34" and the I.D. of the sleeves in the comb is 0.405". Can you help me identify the maker of my hardware and suggest someone that might be able to supply me with taller posts.

    Thanks!

    Try Tronspace. Joe should have what you need, steer you in the right direction, or make a set.

    Here is why I need to go up a tiny bit. I finished a wood pattern for a new add on rib for my BT-100. The plan is to go up at the muzzle and raise the bead 3/16" and raise the back end 5/8". I have been shooting it for several years with the rib running up hill and just shooting off of the bead and this add on should get me pretty close. I will raise the comb by 3/16" to keep the POI the same.

    Many thanks to Todd Nelson at Country Gentleman for helping me with a few measurements and getting me started. Your assistance was greatly appreciated!

    If you look at the pictures of your pins there is a shoulder where they have been filed or cut, that is the reason for the difference in diameter of the posts vs adjusting holes, the comb should be a sloppy fit, which is not good.

    Taller pins are available, I have them made all the time, I have several sets,
    you have option of getting longer screws and washers for to space up the pins, like the smaller diameter fender washers at local hardware store.

    Cut the screw at needed length, file at the cut to clean up threads.

    Tron did my extended post for my K-80. I can't believe how fast he got them to me and they are perfect.
