Field gun with high comb

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Is anyone aware of game/field guns with a high comb, that isn't an adjustable one? 

It would seem I need one, there is the occasional trap stock on a game gun that I'll keep my eye out for, but I wonder if any particular models have a high comb. 

Many thanks!

Some of the earlier Beretta's had quite a high stock, or maybe a Miroku 3800 trap gun. The Miroku trap stock was not overly high, which is why it was the choice as a ' Sporter ' by many. Of course there is also a neoprene sleeve with spacers under it,  to raise any stock.

Do you not just fancy a ‘Sporterised’ trap gun with or without an adjustable comb? There are plenty about. 
Why does it specifically have to be a game or field gun?

Ive got a sporterised trap gun already But it doesn’t get much action. 90% of my shooting is rough/walked and my arms feel like they will fall off after a day with it. I bought a 20b silver pig but all I can see is the lever... same on my benelli m2 - but don’t mind glueing something to that. The silver pig can get shopped in for something else light with a high comb.

Benelli 828U Field. Very light and comes with an adjustable stock facility ( not comb ) as far as I'm aware.

While you're looking why not have a look at an Isis in the meantime as these tend not to throw your eye castwise as many do.

Miroko mk60 high pheasant

has a high comb as standard and was virtually right for me out of the box and I virtually have a trap gun stock set up on my B2G game gun

Thank you yes from reading this seems to be the one although still a little hefty and will need boring out!

I was forced to shoot the mk60 for whole season whilst me other gun was having woodwork sorted and I used Eley pigeon Hv I think where 32g 7s or 6.5s and it didn’t make a mess of any birds that where shot all season with it being 3/4 in each barrel.

Hi,

Of the recent Berettas, the 692 field has quite a high comb.  The Ladies' version is noticeably high.

The vittoria versions, or something with a monte carlo stock?

If you are walked up shooting mainly, an English side by side will be considerably lighter. if you don't mind it not being an ejector model there are lots to choose from??

Good advice but I don’t get on with them sadly m, sold my aya! Think the high pheasant and trap stock may be the ticket

Don't worry Hutt !  The 692 12 bore is full sized for people like you !  Even the Ladies version is pretty long, as it is always easier to shorten if required.

Hutt, I've been watching this thread develop.

How have you arrived at your conclusion that you need a high combed gun?

I too would not want to carry and shoot a trap gun all day at game.

Perhaps it would be worth fitting a temporary comb raiser to your existing gun, something like the picture. You could raise your eye position and confirm whether it would be worth buying a new gun.

Good luck

You've pipped me to the post - I was just about to ask that very question, possibly for the same reason that you did. As above though, I'd go with the Isis comb raiser for the reason given but only obviously if there's one available which is high enough.

I don't shoot game, I'm just interested as to why you wouldn't want to use a trap gun? What's the detrimental factor compared to a game gun?

 

Cheers

My trap guns and my sporters are designed to allow me to comfortably shoot 300 shots in a day, I would not expect to shoot a sixth of that at game.

Hence the guns designed for lots of shots are big and heavy to soak up the recoil.

My Game guns are much lighter and invariably have less choke too.

Ah right, makes sense, cheers!

So I was loitering around a gun shop with the ideal of shopping in my silver pigeon and they stuck this laser thing in my bottom barrel and asked me to aim at a target and the laser was 6” below.. so they raised the comb until it was right and said I need a gun with a high comb. I’ve always thought I should see a flat rib and the bead, but I could see a large amount of rib with what he was suggesting.

Any static test can never be totally reliable and apart from that your final phrase would appear to contradict the result. One thing to possibly bear in mind is that"big" doesn't always mean a long stock and sometimes it can be the reverse. As no one can really help from afar and as I think from some of your earlier posts you're Bristol way - and you could also get the Benelli serviced while you're at it - you could do worse than nipping down the M5 - coming off at J25 would be the conventional exit but I find it easier from J 26 - and have a chat to UK Gun Repairs. For a start they have a pattern plate just outside the door.

Best way to find out!
