    While there may be a bit of interaction, the hangers adjust the POI of the bottom barrel, or so I've been assured. Maybe you can raise the comb and then, if you need to, lower the POI of the lower barrel with a different hanger.

    The reason the hanger works on the bottom barrel is that the rib stiffens the top one and so it's much harder to bend. And you'd have to lower the POI of the lower barrel to raise the other anyway. I think the comb is the way to go.

    Do you have the fixed rib Trap Std. or the TA max Adjustable? I have the TA and I had to put the thinnest hanger in the middle and a # 4 hanger on the nose. The bottom barrel is still about 3 inches higher than the top but that is no problem for doubles since I shoot the bottom barrel first. The thinnest hanger is .042, that is what Pete McCall told me if I am remembering right. Kolar has 5 mid hangers and 6 nose hangers, # 1 thru #6, #6 being the biggest making the bottom barrel shoot lowest. If you have the fixed rib you will have to raise the stock and put a thinner hanger in the middle or a higher number on the nose.
