I had a fitting with Chris Batha a couple of years ago and have a completed sheet with my stock measurements. The try gun Chris used was an AyA, which has a concave rib.

When you consider purchasing a SXS with a raised rib, such as the Winchester Model 21, do you need to adjust the measurements-say for drop@comb and heel to alter the at face measurement? If yes, does the amount of drop need to be increased?

And, if it does need to change, how do you calculate/guestimate the amount of change required?

Thank you.

I caution you about putting so much emphasis on "measurements" those were your measurements for THAT Gun.... Subject to change......with each subsequent gun....
Remember one very important principle....... Gun Fit is simply a matter of WHERE THE LOADS GO.... with any gun.... not .a set of carpenter measurements that will not likely carry over for multiple guns.....
Point of Impact connected to a particular Point of Aim......that is the essence of "Gun Fit"
Lots of guns and a LOT of Shooting behind my opinion.

One thing very few people figure in is the shape of the comb. The measurements seldom account for drop at face, and the comb profile is never quantified. A consistent gun mount must be developed before any fitting numbers are meaningful. As mentioned the mechanical influence of bore and choke being concentric, convergence of patterns on target. As Brister said art and science.
