When fitting a new gun to a new shooter which comes 1st length of pull vs height of comb?? Some out there say the tip of the nose should match a mark on the stock 5 3/4 inches from the trigger.?? Some say 2 fingers between the nose and the thumb knuckle. Are they about the same?? I feel the comb height should be adjusted last to make the gun shooter higher or lower based on the persons point of aim and sight picture.
I would be happy to entertain any and all comments. Need to make an informed decision before I get out the saw.
Thanks for the help

IMHO, establish LOP first. If the stock is too long there will be a tendency to move the butt out towards the arm which will actually make the comb seem to be too low.

If your comb is not a parallel comb, wouldn't the drop be affected if you didn't figure out the LOP first?

I'd start from LOP.

I'd start by buying Rollin's book and reading it twice.

A monte carlo stock has the comb the same all the way from front to back.. If that's the case l.o.p . should be the only consideration

Even a monte carlo stock can be too high or low. All depends on the shooters build.

LOP should be your first adjustment afterwards if a non parallel comb the point of impact will depend on the clothing worn ( winter coat will affect the head position on the stock), on a parallel comb the point of impact will not be too much affected as will the swing of the gun.
