    I am looking at a gun that shoots a 90/10 pattern. The monte carlo comb is too high for me and bumps my cheek. It does not have either an adjustable comb or buttplate. If I put on an adjustable comb and maybe a buttplate do you think I could get it down to 60/40? I get the feeling by the time I get all this done I could probably find a used PFS and know that I would have it shooting where I want. I like the gun but need to know I can make some adjustments on it before I buy.

    You would have to take some wood off of the comb in order to lower the POI. If it has a adjustable rib you may be able to move the POI some. The rib has to be moved up. Personally I would adjust the comb, because it is more affective.

    You either need to move the back (your eye) down or the front (the bead) up. I have a Citori Plus that is adjusted all the way down in back as well as the rib, and it still shoots high. I found a large front bead that moves the pattern down on the pattern board. Next is sanding down the comb, as a last resort. If you have an adjustable comb installed, have them cut it so that it can be lowered more than it was before the cut. Mark
