    Trying to come up with a trap stock with lots of drop at the heel, I'm hoping to see some photos from fellow shooters on here to post some non typical trap stocks, to help give me an idea of what I might end up with..

    Thank you, Ernie Roberts

    I would ask Dennis DeVault to send you some photos of the stocks he has created for his clients. That should give you some ideas.

    I've got one, but am thinking now that a lessor drop at the heel would be better, as Neil has suggested. I'd rather go up with the rib an inch than down with the heel by the same amount. Would yield lessor gun movement at fire time. Get up and away from the bbl for a better view down to the top of the house. You'd have to build up the comb too, but everything is a trade off when you have a build like mine. Maybe next life time, if there is one, I'll put in for a shorter neck.

    I've had most of my guns with at least 1" high ribs, but it never seems to be enough to get my head and eyes in a position to see targets properly. It also makes sense to me that having too high of a rib, say closer to 2", can or will lead to improper leads if the shooter mounts with a slight gun cant. I thought by having too much drop in a stock that it will make the center line of the gun too high and increase jump and effected recoil..
