    Can anyone give a link or suggestion as to where I could buy the hardware ie metalwork to lift the comb on a stock.
    Spent a few hours searching today, no luck, well I did find one in Latvia. :(

    I have had to sell a few toys, just to get through a lean spell. The only 12 ft lbs rifle I have left is a LGU. Previously used for HFT with a Connect scope.
    Dabbling into FT so today I fitted a FT scope with high mounts, Everything is all wrong,
    I need to raise that comb.
    Happy to put the stock on the bandsaw, do the inletting etc. But I need the hardware first.
    All advise or suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks Gary

    Thanks Jim, I am in Bulgaria for the winter. I was just hoping to buy one and have the wife post it to me in BG. I am trying to have a rifle ready for the Bulgarian open in April. :)
    Good option though, thanks. If I am not sorted by spring I will give you a shout.

    Field target shop in Lithuania.

    Audrius is a great bloke, and a bloody good ft Springer shooter...

    I only use his hardware now, top quality

    That is I one I found online today. It was Lithuania, not Latvia. Thanks. 35 euro plus post.
    Thanks Tilly, great heads up. I am now confident to order.

    Yeah hes 100% legitimate.
    He makes a top plate that allows the best part of 25mm offset adjustment too. It's worth buying the whole kit.

    Little tip...
    Before you lop the cheek off
    Glue gun some offcuts to the cheek so you can jig it up squarely once it's off. Much easier as you have a reference point of the top edge of the stock to square off.

    I could help you out Gary, make one to suit your application.
    I have already made cheek riser post for GinB stock and cheek rests too.
    And only up the road from Washington in Stanley

    Great advice, thanks.
    I never saw the top plate on the site but I will check it out. A bit of offset adjustment for a leftie would certainly help.
    Thanks Gary

    Thanks mate, at times I wish I was back home. Stuck in Bulgaria for now. :(
    I moved from No Place to Washington, I know Stanley well.
    regards Gary

    Those are the one I'm thinking for.
    Gary, have you decided which is better for the LGU?
    Someone having experience with cheek riser retrofit? Please comment the advantage/disadvantave of both types.

    Not decided yet Marin. Just checking out the top plate adapter that tillygti6 mentions. Could be a benefit to me, now that I shoot leftie.;)
    I am also tempted to fly home and get one made locally. Temptations.:D

    I use the twin post for cheek and length of pull,
    But il use the single post for lop when it's a short /compact rear end.

    Not used the single post for the cheek, it doesn't offer any advantage.

    Also the cut to recess it, will need to be wider. Itl depend on what stock your working on. Some dont have much width in the rear end ,once the cheek is off.

    I fitted a single post to a S200 only a week or so ago. The owner had bought the kit from Lithuania.

    Personally I prefer two pins rather than one, in true Blue Peter fashion here's one I made earlier, also S200.

    Thanks Tommy,
    Is that the lateral adaptor plate attached?
    I will only have about 43-45 mm width when I make the cut on the cheek. I might be a bit tight for space.
    Thanks Gary

    Perfect, thanks for the sizes. I will be a bit pushed to fit the adaptor plate, I think:). But I am going to try anyway. :D
    I have a large piece of laminate from Lamina on standby it it all goes t!tts up.
    Thanks for all the help and pics.
