    Very,very nice gun.I would suggest you have a few lessons with a good coach,because until you can consistently mount your gun in the same place time after time after time,then no-one can fit it to you.For example,you could mount your gun then move your head/stock until you see the perfect sight picture,but mounting a gun from 'gun down' position onto a moving target may result in a different picture completely.A good coach can help you get consistency.Have fun.

    Hello and welcome to Shootinguk.
    To be honest it would be best if you took it back to the shop and asked them to set it up for you as you've certainly paid enough money.
    Do the stock length first and then alter the comb and cast to get the correct sight picture.

    Good luck.

    thanks for the quick replies Eddie and Robert6.

    so far im totally chuffed with the gun and eveyone down the club wanted a go since of the unusual but good looks.
    yes i was thinking that the stock length would need to be adjusted first then the comb/cast going by what i've read on here aswell as other sites. On the issue of good coaches is there any well recommended coaches in the north of Scotland that anyone would recommend ? since i do live in slightly remote area of the north west coast .

    Ahh! could be a slight problem there. Your best bet is to use the internet and search.
    Or have a look at the A.P.S.I ( Association of Professional Instructors ) website. You may find one near you.

    Sorry, Miroku, but Scotland is bigger than you think. Stornoway to Gleneages is 280-odd miles over difficult roads, and a long ferry crossing. It's easily an eight-hour journey.
