    I have a Remmington 1100 Competition Trap Gun with an adjustable cheek pad. I need to get posts that are longer than the ones that came with the gun so I can raise my cheek pad higher. Any suggestions on where I can order these?

    Take your adjustable comb screws (the ones that hold the posts to the stock.) Go to the hardware store, and get exactly the same thing, only 1/4" longer.

    Then, buy a handful of flat washers that have a hole big enough that the screws fit, and are about the same outside diameter as the adjustable comb posts. Its OK if the washers are slightly bigger diameter than the posts.

    When you put things back together, put the washers between the posts and the stock, and screw the posts/washers onto the stock.

    This effectively lengthens the posts without having to buy new posts.

    Learned this from Greg Hissem

    Under the posts.

    Posts, on top of washers, on top of stock.

    I think he means that you put the washers over the holes in the stock, they are just big enough to put the threaded end of the posts through, then the posts can't be screwed in as far, so they stick up more?

    Is that what you mean Tim?

    All my adjustable combs, there is a capscrew that bolts the post to a threaded adjustable fixture that is epoxied into the stock.

    See attachment.

    Hope this makes sense.

    I understand what you mean. In that case, my fix would not work out.

    Raising the comb will raise your POI so you'll have to adjust the rib to compensate.

    Just call Pat Gottberg and tell him you need longer posts....he does the combs on these guns for Remington and has longer posts on hand for them.

    I've had Tom Larkin and Wenig make longer posts for me.

    timb99, thank you for your drawing, I got it.

    Back to the original topic, I have normal neck, I shoot straight comb stock well, I tried some really high combs and matching high ribs like MX-2008, but I feel lost.

    Have you tried crawling forward on the stock a little? Rise your mounting shoulder a little? Olympic Trap shooters seems all doing this with normal necks.

    Mojo,

    Well if not then the gun will be shooting higher than before. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
