    Appreciate it all. That's the one I was looking at, on ebay. Missed out. At work at the firehouse and got a call, missed the deadline. What would be the advantage to having a parallel stock. I've seen people mention them, but what's the reason for having one??

    Doug:

    In a parallel comb stock, the comb of the stock is essentially parallel toline of sight of the gun. In an ordinary stock comb, the the drop is greater at the heel (i.e, might drop 1 1/2 inches at comb front, 2 1/2 inches at heel (in a monte carlo, the butt might be even lower than heel of comb). In a parallel comb stock the front and heel are the same (for instance 1 1/2 inch and 1 1/2 inches. The main advantage to a parallel comb is that the line of sight (that is the height of the rear sight/eye) is the same wherever you place your check along the length of comb. In ordinary stock, if you move your face forward on the comb, your eye (the effective rear sight) is higher, if you move back on the stock, the eye is thus lower. So in the ordinary stock, it is essential you always shoulder the gun exactly the same way and place on the comb to keep line of sight (and thus point of aim/point of impact the same.
    With a parallel comb, if the cheek placement varies a bit, it will not affect the line of sight. The other advantage of the parallel comb is that it may help reduce felt recoil a bit, since the comb does not ride up into the cheek as much. This type of stock/comb is becoming more and more popular and widely use in target guns for the above reasons.
