    Just bought a LG100...woohoo!

    It has the standard HP stock on it, and as such I'm finding the comb a bit on the low side. Can anyone recommend a source for some really low 25mm mounts, so I can have a bit more cheek weld? The scope will be 32mm objective, so I think I will be able to go pretty low.

    Thanks,

    matt

    My 2p.
    Matt I would look at raising the cheekpiece rather than going super low, Sportsmatch mediums are the tried and trusted for HFT Steyrs. You get a good range of aim points with nothing silly at short or long range.

    While I do favour a very low scope the height you use should not be chosen because of the stocks comb height but based on where your range finding strengths and weaknesses lie. if you don't know yet where you are weakest and need the most help from your scope mounts to flatten the trajectory in that area then put some cheap mounts on for now until you are better equipped to decide.

    Roger, Colin and Simon...

    I bow to your greater knowledge :)
    As my rangefinding is worst from 35-45 yards I guess what I really need is higher mounts!

    I guess I'll selotape a banana to the stock :D

    Have a muck about with scope heights in Chairgun and see what goes on with the aimpoints.

    Nice idea about chairgun, I'll have a play.

    Cheek weld is just about tolerable as is, so I wont do any actual fiddling with the setup untill I've shot it a couple rounds.
