1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Has anyone had any experience having the side of the stock relieved to allow an adjustable comb to be jacked all the way to the side? Any stocksmiths out there do such a thing? I've seen the sharp edge on the stock rounded over so you don't get whacked when you have the comb moved over a little bit, but I think I would need the whole side of the stock removed...

    I'm thinking about setting up a 1100 for myself. The problem is I require 1/2" offset at the comb. This is no problem for my Kolar w/ the Precision Fit Stock, but when I try and jack the comb over on a wood stock, my jaw hits the stock, and I imagine this would NOT be a comfortable situation when the gun was shot.

    I would imagine the side of the stock would have to be relieved a similar amt to the offset required. Would there be enough room to do this in a factory 1100 straight trap stock?

    I just finished doing a similar thing to a model 12.

    I needed a little more than 1/4' cast off. so far so good. I havent had any recoil problems or trouble with the edge.

    If you dont want to shave anymore wood off the stock, try some Moleskin around the edge.

    Also, Velcro tape and some felt may be better in your case.

    Its amazing how a gun that fits shoots so much better.
