    Hi

    Would it be correct when adjusting comb height to make sure it is parallel with the rib when finished? First, I locked the gun in a vise adjusting it until rib was level setting a digital level on the rib. Then I put the level on the comb and adjusted the two posts until the comb was level.

    Thank you

    In theory it is a good idea. It will keep your eye at the same height when your cheek is on the comb. But you will have to shoot the gun inorder to see if there is any pain delivered to your face with the comb setup that way. HMB

    I do the same thing as YODA does. I can also see from his stock set up that he has a long neck as I do.

    If you ever shoot a style that uses a low mount to start from.. you'll find the parallel comb to be ideal.. Regardless of how you mount.. you have the same.. correct sight picture.. As trapshooting starts from a mounted position..It's pretty much up for grabs.. If you practice your gun mount/lifts.. You'll be in the same spot every time.. each of us has own oun preference..Whatever works the best for you.. But.. years ago.. in my stockmaking days..I followed Umberger's (sp) designs.. and was quite pleased..
    Saying all that.. Devault Industries makes a fantastic stock.. i'd look at his comb design.. It seems to be very well liked by many excellent shooters..

    I make sure my comb is parallel with the barrel not the rib. I figure that is where the saying parallel comb come from. Correct me if I am wrong.

    My thinking is a parallel stock is no more parallel once the adjustable rib is adjusted up or down out of parallel. That is why I adjust mine to be parallel with the barrel.

    Hi

    Thank you. It is a PFS and have had no problem with cheek bite. Will check to see if the rib is parallel with the bore.

    Regards
