    I would like to look into getting a soft comb installed on my doubles gun, Guerini Trap O/U. It's not available through the factory. Any suggestions as to where, or from whom, I can get one will be much appreciated. Adding moleskin is not an option as the comb is cranked all the way down and it still shoots a bit high.

    Thanks.

    Greg Hissem Stock Works (http://www.greghissemstockworks.com). He has done 2 for me, one for my friend after I got mine done, and one for another friend after the 1st friend got his done (we all used the same box to ship out stocks to him LOL).

    If you are trying to get the gun to shoot flatter the comb would have to be cut to go lower than the line of the stock comb.

    I had the Country Gentleman redo mine on the old Beretta. Don't make your purchase decision based on cheap. Top quality materials and good workmanship is worth the extra $$. Bill Malcolm

    Are you sure you want a soft top comb? They are difficult, at best, to get the same cheek placement and sight picture. Just something to think about!

    If U get the right material in soft comb POI won't change. I have some by
    Greg Hissem and Speedbumps and POI doesn't change. Use a material that is
    firm enough. I wouldn't shoot a trap gun without one. Greatest thing for
    us with fair skin or older and I am both.

    I have personally used Greg Hissem and Ken Rucker (Speedbump) for stock work, and can heartily recommend either. A few years back at the SW Grand, I had a soft comb that Greg had done for me that was still too high, and had Ken cut it down overnight for a very fair price (Ken has his shop at the National Shooting Complex). Both do great work, but lately I send all my stuff to Ken.

    Another thought. You may like you soft top all you want but at least keep the wood piece that comes off the comb. It will make your gun worth more when yo go to sell it.
