Thread: cross over stock

  1. #1

    cross over stock

    Can anyone give me any details of anyone that makes cross over rifle stocks. My old shooting buddy had to give up shooting when he lost his right eye (shooting eye) to cancer. Having got the all clear he is keen to pick up a rifle again and has tried left handed but being a "righty" he just cant get on with it.
    Next port of call is to try a cross over stock so he can shoot right handed with his left eye.
    Any info welcomed.
    Cheers

    A similar thing occurred to Blue Thomas from Hereford. He modified his stock by taking a large gouge out of the comb so that it dropped his head and allowed him to shoot from the right shoulder and align the left eye with the scope. Blue was a pretty impressive shooter too. So I don't think you will want a cross over stock.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Yes that's the sort of arrangement.

    what about an offset sight? I know a number of TR shooter that use something similar to http://www.edinkillie.co.uk/ecatalog...ml?cPath=44_20 either bought or home made. I presume it wouldn't be too hard for a set of offset rings for a scope to be made and this would be a lot cheaper than a new stock. The main advantage then being that, should he ever won't to retire from shooting, the rifle will still be worth a reasonable amount rather than something that is customised to him (and so not really useable by anyone else without significant modification).
