can you change your poi to the right, without an adjustable comb? ( fixed stock )
Bend the barrel ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
Good wood rasp -- Seen it down in the middle of a shoot.
You can send it in & have the stock bent. Pretty sure any stock maker can do it. Larry Wehinger in Monroe, Wi has done three for me. Nice work & they stayed bent. Don't know if he still does them.
If the barrels are chromed, I was told they can't be bent
also, if the gun has choke tubes Briley can make eccentric chokes
Instead of bending the stock get a adjustable comb installed.
Facial plastic surgery, why mess with a perfectly good gun.
thanks everyone for the suggestions
I agree, adjustable comb is a good idea, providing you can get your face into the gun below the comb, I could not, and even with the adjustable comb, the stock was too thick to get me face into the gun. Bending the stock did what I needed.
Buy a heat lamp and several WOOD CLAMPS, adnd some various thickness of wood, and water put on towels to wrap the stock and clamp it down on work bench, I have done several and it works, last one was my CG. Took a week doing it slowly, It stayed. I posted pictures doing it
several years ago when I lived in Lancaster, Ohio. Mat'l cost $50.00
I’ll post the article later about how mike orlen did it.

Search: "What type of oil to bend stocks"
"Once after reading an article about stock bending, I decided to email its author (Michael McIntosh) and ask him what oil he and gunsmith David Trevallion used. He had referred to the oil as a “secret blend” and of course I wondered what that might be. To level the field, I divulged my “secret blend” (Canola oil). Admitting that cooking oil would no doubt work, he suggested that olive oil might make the gunshop smell a good deal better. One popular choice is mineral oil. It is very stable and has a very high smoke point."
also mineral oil is stable and will not get rancid, we use mineral oil to seal our granite sink
I used Thos Bland & Son at Woodcock Hill, Bolton, PA to bend a fairly thick stock on a Browning 525 sporting. It was a fitting session using a try stock, range time & involved shortening and bending my stock. It was a day well spent.
