    Generally speaking, most are monte carlo with an adjustible comb, or a custom fit stock non adjustable. LOP is generally set up to place the eye 1- 2 inches from the thumb. A gun set up for bunker will "generally" be set to shoot 70 or flatter as gun speed to and through the target is used as lead.

    My preferred LOP is 14 1/4"-14 3/8". Has been for decades, works on my Bunker guns. Use what you have been using for premounted clay target guns.

    If the LOP is too long you will find that you get bound up (can't swing through)on the 45 degree angle targets. This is particularly noticeable on the 1.5 meter low targets where you really have to drive hard through the targets. Cold weather shooting -- where the stock is effectively longer because of winter clothing -- shows this. If the stock is too short, you tend to have control problems, most noticeable with high straightaway targets.

    Most likely, your best length will turn out to be about 1/2 to 1 inch nose-to-thumb. A straight-forward way to learn the optimum length for you is to remove the recoil pad to really shorten the gun, then add temporary spacers to empirically learn what the magic length -- for you -- is. Doing this for several shooting sessions will assure you that you are setting the permanent stock length correctly.

    (If you do a fair amount of cold weather shooting, you may want to cut the stock 1/4" shorter, then have two recoil pads fitted.)
