    I am looking for information that compares the dimension of a standard Remington 1100 trap stock and a Monte Carol (trap) stock. For example, how much does the Monte Carlo raise the comb and are there differences in the drops?

    Thanks for any input.

    The height of the comb is the same for the standard and monte carlo stock.
    The comb however is thinner on the monte carlo stock. It seems like they made the standard stock by cutting the monte carlo section off and then changing the
    angle to the receiver.

    The comb height is the same on each stock. where the butt pad hits the shoulder is the difference. The montecarlo stock sets lower and brings the top of the stock up into your face more so you do not have to get down on the stock as much. Hope this helps.

    The only difference that I could tell is whether your neck is short or long. To me, I have a short neck and the straight stock works better for me. The MC stock sets to low on my shoulder.

    121083 is correct. Comb heights are the same. The butt pad positions are different.

    The straight comb stock is intended for those with short necks.

    The monte carlo stock is intended for those with long necks.

    I've had both and ditched the Monte Carlo. It looks nicer but I found for me that it was easier to cheek the gun more consistantly with the straighth stock especially in warm weather whe you begin to sweat. With the MC if you move your face forward or rearward your sight picture changes slightly Just my preference.
