    I just put a left hand PFS stock with the ultimate comb on my MX8 (low rib).
    I need quite a bit of cast on so it is adjusted almost all the way it will go.
    When i mount the gun I can feel the heads of the screws on my cheek.

    any suggestions ?

    thanks,

    ernie

    Try turning the block so the screw heads are on the left. It worked for me.

    NJFlyer nailed it - turn the block around.


    You need to unscrew the upper bar, slide off the block, flip it 180 degrees (not upside down), slide it back on bar, tighten averything back up and you should be good to go. That is how I have mine mounted and it works really well.


    The only thing that touches the face is the comb.

    there are two screws that hold the comb to the block.
    i have them on the left(looking from butt pad to muzzle)

    on the other side is 4 screws that hold the block together.
    they are on the right and these are ones i can feel.

    Turn the block so all four screws are on the same side(away from your face). Two of them will hold the comb. You might need longer screws.You will only need four screws.

    thanks ken

    i think i see what you mean.

    do you have just two screws from the left holding the block together ?

    Use the longer screws through the comb and all four will hold it together.

    Ernie I am surprised the Ulimate comb will work on a low rib MX8?
    I was told by Vern it would be way too high?
    Let us know how you make out with it.

    got my UFC mounted to a MX3 Special - was able to get the drop at comb MUCH lower than with the factory cheek piece.

    APPROX 1 & 3/8--1 & 1/2 ?

    and when i look at it there does not appear to be any room for more drop ?

    i had a 1&3/8 when i was using a wood right hand and this left pfs is fine for me..

    but i would call vern for advice ?

    please contact me if i can be any help ?
