CC = GunfitterOver the years I have made a lot of stocks, both rifle and shotgun. LOP is important, but a lot of other measurements need to be taken also. It was hard to translate measurements into fit. I used to have the buyer present and me with a rasp file and start working the comb, cheekpiece (if they wanted one), pitch and drop. You really can't do that on the composite stocks of today. You can make adjustments, but the stock will probably have to be refinished (repainted) when finished. Some of the real good stockmakers used to use what everyone called a "try" stock. It had adjustable features like lop. drop, etc that could be continually adjusted for proper fit. The stock looked a lot like some of todays target stocks that are used in bench rest and long range shooting. Custom stockmaking today is getting to be a lost art. Not many of us can afford the wood and the stockmakers price!
