Adjustable Comb

Recommended Posts

As many of you will be aware, most modern sporting rifles are not suited to using modern rifle scopes due to the difference in height between the top of the comb of the rifle and the position of your eye in relation to your scope.

Stocks such as McM A5 and Manners stocks etc with adjustable cheekpieces (combs) can cure this problem but for those of you who don't want to change your stock, there is a gunsmith based at Doveridge by the name of Simon Wilmore who does stock alterations for shotguns and also rifles .

His turn around is very quick - usually about a week and prices for adjustable combs start at £150.00

 

His contact number is 07816 918301.

 

The pictures below are of an Anschutz .17 HMR that he recently did for 20PPC.

Hi Andy,

 

No problem Andy. If you call Simon just tell him that Gary gave you his details and he will charge you double ;)

Hi Bob

 

Simon does a fantastic job . Give him a call, you won't regret it !

 

thank you sir.

 

i am well impressed with the work, its only a old cz 17hmr but its my most used rifle for the work i do, and now having to use glasses this will sort it out and less missed shots. i will have to leave it un til the new year, but if you speak to him, give him the heads up that there are interested parties.

 

until then seasons greeting and have a cracking time.

 

this is my stock with a bit of tinkering done by a mate, this is how i would like it to look, ??

 

bob.

Did you get to choose the length of the comb or does it depend on the stock? Looks quite different from the other rifle above - with different metal fittings used underneath?

Mike Rainback does synthetic stocks, look him up does an awesome job. He has done a lot of Blasers but I would think he’d do any stock
