This adjustment allows you to achieve a perfect fit of the stock against your face. This is a most crucial adjustment, as it determines how correctly and consistently your eye will line up with the sight plane along the barrel rib. A Citori Plus correctly adjusted for cast on and cast off will have you looking directly down the center of the rib with the front and middle beads in alignment.
Cast on and off is not affected by any changes in point of impact made at the rib. To adjust cast on and cast off perform the following:
BEFORE PERFORMING ANY ADJUSTMENTS, ALWA YS MAKE CERTAIN THERE ARE NO SHELLS IN THE CHAMBERS.
1 Loosen the two stock adjustment set screws on the right side of the removable cheek piece and remove the cheek piece by lifting upward (See Figure 18). This exposes the Cast On and Cast Off adjustment mechanism, the cheek piece comes set from the factory with cast in the center position.
2 Loosen both of the stock adjustment stud screws located in the top of the stock adjustment studs using the larger (3mm) alien wrench provided (See Figure 19). It takes about a 1/4" turn to loosen them adequately.
Loosen the stock adjustment screws.
3 Slide each stud equally in the desired direction. Each mark indicates 1/16".
4 Move the studs to the right for Cast Off.
6 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.
7 When properly set, the front and rear sight beads should line up perfectly each time you shoulder your shotgun.
8 Tighten the stock adjustment stud screws. Be careful not to over tighten.
9 Replace the cheek piece onto the studs. If drop at comb has alreadv been set to your desired height, tighten the two stock adjustment set screws securely. If drop has not l)een set, leave the set screws loose and proceed to "Adjusting Drop at Comb" below.
