    Any stock maker can make a stock with a roll over. They used to be very popular. I have found that it is a little more difficult to get my face in the exact same spot with a roll over comb and getting the correct cast off is a bit harder with a roll over.

    Rollover combs are thngs of beauty, but are functionally moot.
    If it doesn't touch your body, it has no effect on your shooting, stockwise.

    I shoot several roll over comb stocks and they all touch my body and help reduce recoil buy spreading out the area over my chubby face. I am one who like a thicker comb to reduce recoil as long as the cast is correct like most agree a proper fit is a recoil must and a roll over works for me.

    blaser f3 super trap guns have a adjustable rollover comb. I picked one up the other day, and wow does it pull up nice, I just wish I could afford one.

    I never picked up an Anton roll over that did not fit me like a glove. I guess I am partial to them

    The difference in comfort with rollover combs is their radius, which is often greater than that of conventional combs, some of which tend toward knife-like.

    Rollover combs MUST be in right position, however, both in cast and height to be beneficial. When they fit, they're great. They are well worth considering if you're having a custom stock made.

    I like the Anton roll over stocks also, have two of them.

    I had the one on my model 12 converted into a adjustable comb by the Co Gentlemen as it didn't quite fit me. Fits great now.

    Anton made them to fit the individual ordering it. I wasn't the orginal owner.
