    But i want to make sure i do it right . I have had AA S410`s for years , and i love em . Ive recently got my hands on a nice .177 MPR FT . Now , im used to the S400 stocks , and their mainly hunting rigs for me , but i want to make sure i get the MPR stock correctly adjusted to `fit `me right . Is there a correct place to start ? Is there a set way to do it , or am i just in at the deep end ? Any help appreciated Buster

    a rule of thumb is that the butt to grip should be the same as distance from inside elbow to grip... ie instead of sticking butt in shoulder, stick it in elbow cleft and see if hand is stretching to reach grip or has too much slack.

    then i set cheekpeice to the height that is comfortable, in the main position, then try and set the scope to that in terms of height and eye relief, but if you're doing HFT then most prefer the scope as close to the barrel as poss for trajectory reasons... but still check the eye relief and head position. Then i check the butt is allowing a neutral muzzle, ie it's not pushing it up or down when all feels natural... if it's pushing muzzle down, raise, and the opposite follows if it's pointing high.

    if in any doubt, i push an adjustment to each extreme and see what each feels like, and go from there.

    you should get close after a session, but it's not unknown to be tweaking for a while... the scope is the biggest pain to move, so spend some time there.

    Hard to give an answer to such a question over the net.
    Rob has dome it very well, but getting an experienced shooter to watch you as you sit / kneel / stand with the gun would be my way of getting the answer.
    Pop along to your nearest club see what the those in the know say?
    Most people i know have had to have an extension for the Ft Mpr to use in Ft.
    I think Countorik on here was doing them?
