Before Performing Any Adjustments Always Make Certain There Is No Shell In The Chamber

1 STANDARD MODEL: Loosen the comb by inserting a %4" Allen wrench through the hole found on the upper left of the recoil pad and into the Allen screw located within the recoil pad (Figure 11). Turn wrench counterclockwise three full turns to loosen Allen screw. This will sufficiently loosen the Adjustable Comb, allowing adjustments to be easily made. The cheek piece comes set from the factory with cast in the center position.

GRACOIL MODEL: Remove the butt plate by inserting a %2" Allen wrench into the single hole on the right side of the butt plate and turn the set screw counterclockwise two turns to loosen the screw (Figure 12). Removing the butt plate gives access to the the hole found on the upper left of the stock plate. (Figure 13). Loosen the comb by inserting a %4" Allen wrench through the hole found on the upper left of the stock plate and into the Allen screw located within the stock plate (Figure 14). Turn wrench counterclockwise three full turns to loosen Allen screw. This will sufficiently loosen the Adjustable Comb, allowing adjustments to be easily made. The cheek piece comes set from the factory with cast in the center position.

2 Carefully adjust comb to desired cast on or cast off position (Figure 15) by sliding each post equally in the desired direction. CAST ON AND CAST OFF ADJUSTMENTS ARE A MATTER OF TRIAL AND ERROR. Adjust in small increments until the desired sight picture on the rib is reached. Each increment represents VW. Move the posts to the right for cast off and to the left for cast on.

3 Right handed shooters may desire some cast off, with left handed shooters preferring some cast on. The terminology is the same for right or left-handed shooters. The net effect is to move the cheek piece to allow the face to move farther over the stock for better eye-to-rib alignment.

4 When properly set, the front and rear sight beads should line up perfectly each time you shoulder your shotgun.

5 STANDARD MODEL: Once desired cast has been obtained, tighten the Allen screw in the recoil pad. The screw needs to be firmly tightened, but be careful not to over tighten. If drop at comb has not been set, leave the Allen screw loose and proceed to "Adjusting Drop at Comb." GRACOIL MODEL: Once desired cast has been obtained, tighten the Allen screw in the stock plate. The screw needs to be firmly tightened, but be careful not to over tighten. If drop at comb has not been set, leave the Allen screw loose and proceed to "Adjusting Drop at Comb."
